FIRST BROADCAST: 26 October 1986 C4
The last programme in the series of music documentaries by Jeremy Marre, it examines the music of ceremony and ritual - from marching bands to folk fairs and circuses, carol singing, Northern Soul, gospel, the Salvation Army, the Royal Tournament and the football terraces' own version of We'll Meet Again.
This series of seven one-hour music documentaries by the distinguished film-maker Jeremy Marre - which was three years in the making - takes its limits from the geographical boundaries of England and approaches music through contemporary eyes. The series asks the question - what is the role of music in the British way of life?
