As the previous reviewer states, this was a 30 min compilation show taking each year from 1956-1989. The footage was a blend of archive news, TV Entertainment and music shows with a fantastic soundtrack of that years music. The visual footage stands out on its own as the 'story' of the year, from wars to politics and world events...............the music is sublime well chosen, made all the more effective for being just that, a musical soundtrack linking the visuals.
I have recently completed the transfer of all episodes from VHS to DVD and they are fantastic viewing. I ought to send each and every MP of the UK a copy and let them realise that what has gone before.........nothing seems new or surprising in the world after watching these shows.
