A Whistle Test report on Mick Jagger
'I was, you know, feeling in the mood for it, and I thought - stop talking about the solo record you might do one day. I didn't think about it too much, to be honest. I just went ahead and did it'. (Rolling Stone magazine 1985)
Since June 1962, Mick Jagger has been fronting what for many is the greatest rock and roll band in the world - THE ROLLING STONES. In March 1985 he broke that mould and released his first solo album - She's the Boss.
David Hepworth flew to Paris and met up with Mick to talk to him about the project. This exclusive interview includes footage shot in Brazil to accompany the album, as well as rarely-seen archive footage of the Stones in performance.

In the past decade, Britain's inner cities have received millions of pounds of taxpayers' money - as successive governments have wrestled to reverse their decline. But more and more of that investment has gone into prestige city and dockland developments - less and less to local communities.
Last week Brass Tacks reported on the 'Eldonians' - a group of people in Liverpool who took on the planners and the politicians to build new homes for themselves.
Tonight John Harrison asks if this is a realistic way forward for the rest of the inner-city communities. In the audience are planners, politicians, activists - and you, the viewers, who rang in to have your say.
