The Summer of 1976 - The Summer of Heat
Saturday 3rd June 2006


Visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/features/u ... ught.shtml the link is not directly related to the programme

Information

The Summer of Heat, 1976
The longest, driest spell on record led to drought, water rationing and forest fires. As the country sweltered, tensions rose. Angry crowds helped James Hunt win the Grand Prix, violent rioting tore up the Notting Hill Carnival and punk reared its rebellious head. Britain would never be the same again. Very strong language.

The Summer of 1997 - The Summer of Pop and Politics

Post by Pavy Crevis » Mon Aug 14, 2006 3:00 pm

The Summer of 1997 - The Summer of Pop and Politics
Saturday 17th June 2006

Information

Pop, politics and celebrity joined forces in the summer of 97. New Labour and Tony Blair came to power after an astonishing Labour election result which ended 18 years of Tory rule. The spirit of the election result seemed to permeate every aspect of British culture: pop, art, fashion. Oasis and the Spice Girls were at
their peak.
But at the end of August, the violent death of Diana shocked Britain and nearly brought down the monarchy.
