Sounds of the Sixties – 1964-6: The Beat Boom now on FilmOn

Do you love the music of the 1960s? BBC Four is celebrating the music of this iconic era with “Sounds of the Sixties.” The series focuses on legendary BBC performances by the popular musical acts of the ’60s. One of the episodes from the series, “Sounds of the Sixties – 1964-6: The Beat Boom” can be viewed on FilmOn’s BBC Four channel. Here’s more about the series:

“[A] Ten-part series featuring rock, pop and R&B performances from the BBC archives. It kicks off with the very birth of the decade, when pop was consigned to Crackerjack and rebellious singers still wore cardigans. But then Beatlemania came along. Featuring the fabulous Freddie and the Dreamers on Blue Peter and Pinky and Perky doing the Twist.”
