Mick Jagger on Look North in 1971
BBC Look North is taking a look back through some of its archive material and included in that material is footage of some of the nation's favourite pop stars.
It's a question that many pop fans ask all the time - just how much footage of their favourite pop acts is gathering dust in dark and gloomy vaults, never to be revealed to the public.
Madonna at Roundhay Park in 1987
Well, now BBC Look North is bucking that trend by having a dig into its extensive archives and showing some much-sought-after footage of major rock and pop acts like Madonna and the Rolling Stones in the first installment of its new Rewind feature which is broadcast over four weeks within the normal Look North programme.
