Some memories are stuck in aspic, vivid and unchanging, and I play them like tracks on an album. My memoir, The Day The Music Died, is officially in your hands now. I reveal the stories behind the story, taking you from Cathy Come Home and Kes in the ‘60s right through to the turn of the Century with Between the Lines and This Life. How did they happen? What was it like on location? I give a blow by blow account of the battles with senior management at the BBC. I speculate on the politics of the times. I speak as I feel, but without rancour, of the many personalities I encountered.
