Sounds of the 20th Century Episode 25 of 50

Radio 2's audio journey through five decades reaches 1975. Jeremy Vine introduces a collage of the music, news, people and programmes - as they were heard at the time - without any commentary, analysis, or hindsight.

1975 is the year of Bohemian Rhapsody and Born To Run, Cockney Rebel and Kraftwerk, the Rollers and the Wailers. There are successes for Margaret Thatcher and Arthur Ashe, America pulls out of Vietnam and Rod Stewart's Sailing provides the soundtrack to an unlikely war over cod.
