Third in a six-part series lookingat pop history, based on music journalist Pete Frame 's intricate hand-drawn family trees.
The series concentrates on human dramas behind some of the best known bands from the 1960s to the present. Deep Purple People
Tonight's programme charts the tempestuous history of one of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. In the early seventies, Deep Purple could claim to be the biggest band in the world in terms of record sales and the size of their live audiences. Yet tensions between the five members were neverfarfrom the surface and the history of the band is littered with splits. One of the many stories tells of the events which led to singer Ian Gillan leaving Deep Purple in 1973, an event which keyboard player Jon Lord describes as "the biggest shame in rock 'n' roll". Members of Deep Purple and offshoots such as Rainbow,
Whitesnake and Gillan describe with remarkable frankness the highs and lows of three decades of life in the music business. See today's choices. Series producer Francis Hanly
