Johnnie Walker celebrates the decade of Regan, Carter and Haskins.

This week The Last Waltz, the live album taken from The Band's last ever concert, is featured in I Was There. A star-studded farewell to the group before their split in 1977, they were joined on stage by acts including Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Ringo Starr and Neil Young. The concert was also filmed by Martin Scorcese for the 1978 documentary film of the same name.

Also on the show, Robin Campbell of UB40 will pick his favourite songs from the decade, and define the inspirations that led to him forming a reggae band in Birmingham as the seventies ended.

Another all-time great single will be loaded into Johnnie's Jukebox, and The Rolling Stones reaching the top of the album chart with Exile On Main Street will be revisited courtesy of the BBC archive.
