The Showbiz Set[01/10/2002] (2002)

Film details


This week's The Showbiz Set episode hurtles into the 1960s, a turbulent decade for television as it struggled to reflect - and appeal to - an ever more permissive society. Britain, in the grip of Beatlemania, was also about to witness a rapidly changing showbiz set as a new breed of young, maverick presenters hit the screen. It was the decade when TV was to meet its nemesis in Mary Whitehouse, directly influence politics and crown its biggest television star yet t one who, before long, was to fall from grace with dizzying speed.
