SPIKE MILLIGAN MEETS JOE BROWN 1961
U.K TV show with a focus on British beat rocker, Joe Brown. Smart-alec interviewer Spike Milligan interviews typical teenagers, Jack Good, Larry Parnes, Joe's Mum and many others tryin' to get to the bottom of the Joe Brown & Rock n Roll phenomenon. Cool vintage performance footage.

MARTY WILDE 2002
U.K. documentary. The history of one of Britain's first rock n roll stars, Marty Wilde and the Wildcats. Influenced by Lonnie Donegan, Marty started playing skiffle then moved to rock n roll.

Rare and wild footage of Sutch running around the stage swinging an axe and terrifying his audience! He also ran for Parliament several times in the '60s, representing the National Teenage Party! Sutch was involved in a succession of great bands that included Keith Moon, Ritchie Blackmore, Nicky Hopkins, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. His producer was Joe Meek. Songs include "Midnight Man," "Jenny Jenny," "Jack The Ripper," "Train Kept A Rollin," "Dracula's Daughter."

JOHN LEYTON 2002
U.K. documentary. John Leyton was a British actor who became a pop star when he sang "Johnny Remember Me" on television. The next day all the record shops were inundated with purchase requests.
