Britpop at the BBC
Twenty years ago, Britpop stamped its presence onto the British music scene and made boys wearing eyeliner cool again. What better reason for BBC FOUR to raid the BBC archives for this show which is a rich treasure trove of the joy and the time that was Britpop. Featuring the girls (Elastica, Sleeper) and the boys (Suede, Menswear) and many of the other bright young things that contributed to five years of Cool Britannia, Blur vs Oasis and Camden being the centre of the universe. Britpop at the BBC reminds us all why we were all so proud to be British again in the 1990s.
