I've only just found out! I'm chuffed. I'm going to be glued every time there's a show on. Missed one last night about Syd Barrett, but there's a Beatles one on Tuesday.
The website's really good too. There's a page where people go on and post their memories of the 60s. My jealousy of this bloke is bigger than anyone ever.

I started work in 1967 at 16 in London, photographing pop stars. My first pop magazine cover was Manfred Mann, the second The Beatles (Feb 1968). Amongst many, I also photographed; The Rolling Stones, The Doors, T.Rex, Rod Stewart, The Kinks, Diana Ross, Lulu, The Carpenters, The Who, Elton John. Was resident photographer at BBC for Simon Dee's "Dee Time". I was a trendy teen, dressed in a bottle green velvet suit from Take 6. Had clothes hand made at Carnaby Cavern by Colin, my hair cut by Denny at Sweeney's in Knightsbridge. My shirts were frilly or Nero style with a round collar.The swinging sixties were amazing, fast and productive. I was a teenager from Margate with a camera and a pass to every cool happening fab gear music event. I am still a photographer."
