And the BBC Archive has coughed up a lovely spot of old industrial folk music from the early 1970s. It’s certainly worth a listen and it’d be nice if the entirety of that edition of Omnibus somehow managed to make it to iPlayer…
And today with have two Pulp documentaries.
Short and not particularly deep but a lovely throwback to the mid-90s. Also old enough that it still has (for whatever reason!) a random spot of Gary Glitter.
Longer and somewhat more in-depth, though with a tendency to wander off – the pub analysis was un-needed – and stray from from the narrative under construction. No obvious disgraced celebrities feature in this one but there was a small callout out to Rolf Harris and his stylophone.
Another nice mid-90s documentary, this time on the Manic Street Preachers.
Here’s a nice little documentary on the Liberal/SDP merger. A little before my time, there are a good number of faces I remember from later years – though all noticeably younger!
It seems to have been first shown at 6.00pm on the March 2nd, 2009.
