The fourth of five programmes introduced by Tim Rice

' By the time 1963 came along The Everlys were no longer something new on the scene, they were somewhat of an old story so very few of their datés were sellouts. This was due to the fact that by 1963 The Beatles and the Liver-pool sound were taking over.'
