The Archive is a celebration of masterpieces and forgotten gems from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. Recordings which saw the great stars of popular music and instrumentalists of the day stepping up to the microphone and perform exactly what we hear today with no way of correcting errors or eccentricities. We don't or can't look back further than the artifical barriers we've set ourselves -- the beginnings of rock'n'roll perhaps, the Beatles era, flower-power or Punk. The place we don't go back beyond. But tonight we enjoy tracks from Bunny Berigan, Lee Wiley, Art Tatum, Hoagy Carmichael and Gracie Fields from this archive as Russell Davies opens up that glorious hinterland of older music, incidentally playable now in far better sound quality than was available at the time.
