Radio 2's audio journey through five decades reaches 1978. 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.

1978 is the year of Grease, Sid Vicious and the Sultans of Swing. There are great comebacks for Muhammad Ali and Bob Dylan, big wins for Liverpool and Argentina, and chart recognition for Baker Street, Wuthering Heights and the YMCA.
