Welcome Aboard

Wednesday 5 March 2008 13:30-14:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Paul Jackson explores the stories behind the making of classic TV programmes.

Introduced in 1957 when the so-called Toddlers' Truce, which saw all TV close down between 6pm and 7pm so that young children could be put to bed, was abolished, the Six Five Special was Britain's first rock 'n' roll programme, introducing the acts who would become the foundation of British popular music and putting the audience in front of the camera for the first time.

Followed by News.
