'Ere the base laws of servitude began,
When wild in woods the Noble Savage ran"

What's it like to be a pop star? The idea conjures up images of fast cars, large houses, smooth suits, girls, adulation and money. But what really happens?
This new series of A Year in the Life kicks off with a close look at the fortunes of a pop group. In June 1968 they were on the brink of fame and fortune, in the next 12 months anything could happen. The film is not a pop show but an account of attitudes; of dashed hopes and optimism as the group are hustled through the multi-million-pound industry of Pop
Can they through the year realise the promise? Can they become the 'Big Deal Group'?
