Though examples of popular history range from magazines such as History Today right through to the work of the National Trust, it is the film industry that has recently encapsulated the imaginations of thousands of ordinary people.

Jason Holmes | Posted 04.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Jason Holmes

Fleming speaks of Jimi's other-worldliness, of a man who could stand next to you in a room while giving you the impression he was elsewhere. But for Fleming the creative high point of the decade was 1967, the year that gave the world the Monterey Pop Festival.

Baby Boomers - a New Marmite Test?

Toby Williamson | Posted 10.12.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Boomers are also a bit more savvy about mental health, and a bit more willing to seek help for mental health problems than their parent's generation. They are rich in resources - some, but not all, in material resources - but also less obvious resources accumulated through life experience.

Feeling Punch-Drunk on The Drowned Man

Last night, I spent 3hours in what felt like a 4- tier Mike Nelson installation. From the moment the 'play' had begun I was stuck between feeling like I was caught in an interactive video game or trapped in the body of an obsessively voyeuristic fly.

How Harry Nilsson's Troubled Childhood Inspired Great Songs

Alyn Shipton | Posted 23.10.2013 | UK Entertainment
Alyn Shipton

Right through his life, Nilsson went on pouring his life and experiences into his lyrics, and there are few artists whose life can be traced, song by song, album by album, as graphically as his. His split from his second wife, his experiences of drugs and alcohol, and his final, fulfilled family life with his third wife Una...

My Tribute to Soho's Bespoke Tailors With Phil Daniels (Song and Video)

Tim Arnold | Posted 19.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Tim Arnold

These cats are hardcore stylists, but their roots are, like all the best tailors, in Savile Row. The difference is that they've all become rock stars by moving their trade to Soho. And it's right that Soho is the place where they have made their mark, because Soho is the world that encourages 'preservation of the individual'.

The Best We Have: Saying Goodbye to Rock's Greatest Generation

Musicians who made it through the 1960s are now dying in their 60s. Within the next 20 years, the generation that sang My Generation will be gone. (John Entwhistle died in 2002 aged 57.) These players belong to my parents' generation, and this is what makes their passing so bitter: You know Mum and Dad are next.

The Moody's forged their identity in the 60's and have since weathered the divisive egocentric storms groups normally endure. Last year was the 45th anniversary of their seminal album Days of Future Passed, of which Nights was a single.

Terence Stamp: Calm in the Eye of the Storm

Jason Holmes

Stamp's path through life could have been very different. For an East End lad growing up in post-war London, acting was not on the cards. "I left the East End quite early in terms of other kids my age. My mother made a terrible fuss, but my dad didn't mind at all. But if I was going to try acting, I couldn't have done it had I stayed at home."

Martin Newman

The toys, one of the first mass-produced dolls based on adults, exude the particular style of the 1960s, mimicking both the fashion of the day and the confidence of an America that was throwing off the repressed airs of the '50s and undergoing a revolution of ideas.

British Film Appreciation: All Night Long (1962)

Sara Bivigou

All Night Long (1962) is an exception, a film I can't just turn up to. At the weekend I began watching it in jeans and a t-shirt but felt so slobbish that halfway through I paused and changed into a dress. (This wasn't sufficient but it was better.) One must prepare to watch All Night Long, it is an invitation to a party. You should attend in high spirits, your back straight, head held up.

British Film Appreciation: Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960)

Sara Bivigou | Posted 19.09.2011 | UK Entertainment
Sara Bivigou

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning's infamous line is "Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not". This is a sentiment we are all well versed in. I once said it to a PE teacher who chastised me for being 'boring and slow'. You said it to your parents as a temperamental teen. Or to a friend who called you names for liking the wrong things.
