Series 1, Episode 5 - Pop And Easy Listening
Music had always been at the heart of variety, but in the 1950s rock 'n' roll and the concept of the teenager arrived. TV didn't know how to cope so the 60s viewer was fed a diet of easy listening.
Pop and rock flourished on TV in the 70s and 80s and after a fallow period is now back on primetime in the shape of shows like Popstars, Pop Idol and X Factor.
