BBC Rewind the 60's

The BBC Rewind the 60's series starts next week - Monday 15th, 09:15 on BBC One

There will be 5 episodes in total with the first covering the years 1960 and '61 - in a later episode there will be a focus on the mod movement (presumably the 64-65 episode) which should include an interview with our very own John Leo Waters - nice one John!


Rewind the 60's


I've had an udpate from the programme makers:

    • looking forword to this. ive got the telly that night. the bird can watch x factor catch up in the room way the weanes or wit ever other pish she watches.
    • Not long after watching the latest episode and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the bits about the scooters, and even more so Johns part. I think i will keep this one for posterity. (he forgot to tape it ha ha)
    • You can download it from iPlayer here

      "(Rockers) I still hate 'em"
  • Just watched the 3rd programme which of course was much better than previous episodes - great to see John on there and loved his comment at the end (talking about rockers) - "I still hate em!"

    They also did a feature on Lambretta scooters and the Marcus Price shop in Newcastle which John had mentioned in his story. You can read more of John's story here

  • Watched the first of this series - it's ok - it's very much cosy daytime tv style but some nice stories and clips/pictures from the time - Lulu's accent is of course all over the place. It was 1960/61 today - the one to look out for is on weds (64/65) with a bit about mods and rockers.
    • Just after watching it there myself. Quite interesting but I would not say I would particularly want to keep that one for watching in the future.
  • I've had an update from the programme makers:

    So it's Wednesday 17th November on BBC 1 @ 9.15 am - dont miss it!
    • I think I'll give it a miss now that I know you have had some input Stevie ha ha.
    • Out here in the boondocks, I haven’t been able to view it yet, though I have heard that John was wearing a nice shirt!
      I tried to access the BBC i player, and I can get the website okay but when I reach Rewind the Sixties and a picture of Lulu in a red basket chair, a banner comes across which says NOT AVAILABLE in YOUR AREA. Oh well, stymied again!
