We would guess it isn’t going to be the best documentary on the subject (Tony Palmer’s Wigan Casino pictured above probably gets that title), but Living For The Weekend should still be worth checking out if you have any kind of interest in northern soul.
This was flagged up on the forum, with the BBC4 site offering the briefest details. Thankfully, we’ve been able to get the full details of Timeshift – Mods, Rockers and Bank Holiday Mayhem off the BBC this morning.
A lot to get in, but perhaps best to keep everything about For The Love Of Mod in one place.
First heard about this documentary on Paul Gorman’s blog back in February, but nothing since. However, browsing the new listings for the BFI, spotted a world premiere for Dexys – Nowhere Is Home in May.
We have flagged the book up before, but if you want to know more about Generation X by Charles Hamblett and Jane Deverson, check out The First Generation X on BBC Radio 4 on iPlayer while you still can.
Just spotted this in the inbox, The Soul Rider documentary, which focuses on a 1960s mod in the present era, but looking back at the past. It’s a short watch, but worth the effort.
If you missed it or happen be be outside the UK, you can check out the BBC Culture Show: Northern Soul – Keep the Faith thanks to YouTube.
One for the diary, with the BBC Culture Show soon to be showing a special called Northern Soul – Keep the Faith.
