Three-part documentary series telling the story of popular music and its place in British culture since the 1950s.

In the early 80s, punk-inspired art students such as The Human League and ABC took British pop to the top of the world's charts, but from the late 80s onwards, dynasties of star-makers such as Stock Aitken and Waterman have tried to mould British pop into a highly-profitable production line. Contains some strong language. [S]
