    The 70's

    BBC 2 21:00-22:00
    Just watched part 1 of 4 of this series about Britain in the 70's, great background music, T Rex, Bowie The Who, Zep etc.
    Essential viewing for quite a lot of us.
    The program is followed by Sounds of the 70's, 10 parts to this.

    Yeah, got caught up in this. First show was quite good. Some of the music was a little out of sync though (from wrong time periods) but hey ho.
    A man's got to believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink.

    Loved how they were doing a piece on (West) Germany whilst playing "Sylvia" by Focus in the background ... that'll go down well with Dutch AND German viewers if the programme gets exported ... LOL

    I truly loved the Marc Bolin piece with "All The Young Dudes" over the top

    In the program producers defence he'd know it wasn't Bolan and another great song to cover the glam rock piece.
    I think there will be a lot of this going on were the songs must be heard but there is no story to tie them in with.

    Yes, agree - and makes a change from Thijs' yodelling on "Hocus Pocus", which is the usual Focus tune of choice in this sort of programme!

    I wouldn't be so sure about that - have you seen the "Keith Moon" thread? Every chance the programme producer was at the same public school as the Olympics 'organisers' ...

    Yep hard to believe, I'm sure a bit more research would have gone into a program like this. No doubt we will have The Damned and co jumping around to a background of Anarchy in the UK or God Save The Queen.

    Didn't like yesterday's 3rd of 4 episodes ... totally disagreed with almost everything. I was happy then/loving/listening/buying/doing/working in industry, despite the ladybirds/hot hot 1976. Still happy now, despite the wet wet.

    I worked in a car factory for 30+ years, the unions domination in the 70's was funny when you were part of it but looking back how embarrassing and pathetic.

    Yes. But there were-are other embarrassing money-questors around.
