OCTOBER

Sex, Chips & Poetry:  50 Years Of The Mersey Sound
Tuesday 3rd October
9pm-10pm
BBC FOUR
This hour-long film will celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the best-selling poetry anthologies of all time, The Mersey Sound - and the bohemian Liverpool 8 community during the 1967 Summer of Love.
In the same year that The Beatles released Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Liverpool established itself at the centre of this cultural revolution, thanks to the publication of this crucial poetry anthology.
How did a small group of working class poets take poetry from the dusty shelf and onto the street, fending off criticism from some quarters of the poetry establishment, to become a mainstay on British school syllabuses?
Through the eyes of the two surviving poets, Roger McGough and Brian Patten, and their many followers from Craig Charles and John Cooper Clarke to Willy Russell and Benjamin Zephaniah, this film explores the book’s lasting influence.

( Also on catch-up HERE after the show has aired )
