Johnnie Walker meets the legendary music photographer Harry Goodwin and singer-songwriter, musician and social activist Buffy Sainte-Marie shares her favourite 70s tunes.

Harry Goodwin was the official artist photographer when, in 1964, the BBC started to film Top of the Pops from Manchester. He continued until 1973 and photographed some of the most famous and successful stars in the music industry including Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Bee Gees, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Elton John and Stevie Wonder.

Harry toured the UK with the leading artists of the day and later went on to photograph many boxing and soccer superstars, including the Muhammad Ali and George Best. His work is still very much in demand and the recent Top of the Pops book (1964 -2002) published by the BBC contained many of Harry's famous photographs.

Also on the show, Johnnie spins three tracks from a classic 70s album.
