    I had this marvellous documentary for over 20 years until last weekend when like an idiot I erased it by mistake. I have plenty of rare programmes to swap if anyone has this rare treasure.

    That's terrible, Ray. I hope someone has a copy for you ... or can the TV channel it came from help? I've made the same mistake many times so you're not alone - the worst being C4's early series 'The Sixties'.

    Was the C4 Sixties programme mainly about the music?



    If so, I have a copy on DVD (although I don't know how many were in the series)

    Hello. This was a six-part documentary series narrated by James Bolam. Each week the programme looked at different aspects of the decade, including Music, Fashion, Architecture, Pop Art and Politics.



    This was only a few weeks after Channel 4 started and the images were incredible for me as a 17-year-old obsessed with anything to do with the Sixties (still am). Unfortunately, I wiped off all the episodes (because of poor quality) thinking I'd get a better recording one day - but never got the chance. I'd pay big money to get all the episodes in good, complete condition.

    Without checking I'm pretty sure the one I have will be the 'music' one.

    I tried to send you a message but it seems you need to clear your in box before you can accept any more.
