Walking With Headphones - How The Walkman Conquered The World

Steve Punt dons his headphones and pops on a cassette for a jog round the intimate musical world of the personal stereo.

25 years after we learned to love that strange new word, 'walkman', Steve meets those who simply wouldn't leave home without their music and revisits the case of the 'headphone leakage martyr' - briefly the scourge of the tabloids - who was hit with the full force of the law for refusing to turn his personal stereo down.
