BIGGER THAN JESUS
This programme tells the story of a truly extraordinary event and its aftermath. It's a story of fame, the mass media, pop music and religion, of two cultures clashing. We discover how an interview with a pop star could ignite a debate about the place of religion in an increasingly secular society. Illustrated with contemporary sound archive, listeners will hear from those who were in the Beatles' inner circle at the time and from those who protested against them.
