Mark Goodier hosts an intimate evening with famed singer/songwriter Ray Davies, who remains best known for his work with quintessentially 60s quartet the Kinks. Appearing before a small audience at BBC's Maida Vale Studios, Davies deconstructs his songs and plays a selection of favourites, including Sunny Afternoon, Dead End Street, Picture Book, Walter, Village Green and Muswell Hillbillies.
