Storyline

Noddy Holder narrates the surprising origins of our favourite music genres. The prospect of Mutually Assured Destruction in a nuclear war terrified millions of families in the West in the late twentieth century - and inspired music in almost every genre. Starting with a Talking Blues song in 1945, nuclear protest songs can be found in Western Swing, Country and Gospel, Jazz and Rockabilly, as well as the world of pop. In this programme, classic tracks by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Nik Kershaw, Sting, Culture Club and Genesis are celebrated by producer Trevor Horn, singer Billy Bragg, writer Bob Stanley, plus OMD's Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys. Written by Kenneth Penchant
