: Pop Goes a Person?

A searching look into the world of pop music, at the manipulators and the manipulated; the people behind it, in the forefront, and those hanging on all around it
Is it important, or just self important?
With Maureen Cleave, Pete Murray, Simon Dee, Ann Nightingale, Alan Freeman, Eddie Rogers, Tony Secunda and the pop stars themselves
Introduced by Nicholas Barrett
Produced by Sandra Harris and Nicholas Barrett
A World at One production

Pop goes a Person?
It is just ten years since Tommy Steele burst on to the Popular Music scene, and turned it, rather dramatically, into the Pop Music scene. 'Rock with the Caveman,' he shouted from a cafe under the arches near Waterloo station, and the whole country joined in the chorus. shouting, stamping and screaming.
The 'Moon,' 'June,' 'Sweet Dreams,' and 'Sweet-hearts' were sent, rather smartly, somewhere over the rainbow. Lyrics were suddenly no longer lyrical. A young man called Adam Faith invented a new word 'baybay.' A teenager called Harry Webb changed his name to Cliff Richard and steered us through the early 1960s with songs that, in retrospect seem rather dull. Then came 'the finest flowering of British pop music' - the Beatles. The North moved south, grinning broadly, and cocking a snook at any sort of distinction or discrimination it saw. Groups with strangely long hair arrived from Liverpool, from Manchester, and Newcastle upon Tyne, and, fresh from the Home Counties, the one we all love to hate, the Rolling Stones. 'It was a case of the cat looking at the King for the first time,' says Maureen Cleave. 'But now I think a rather dull phase has set in. I can't see what can happen now.'
Well what will happen? Is it important anyway? Are the pop singers personalities any more, or have they been swallowed up by the big-business machine? Are they less important than the records they make? Have sounds taken over from people? Today's programme takes a look behind the tinsel.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
