About this programme

3/50. In 1963, the Profumo Affair hit the headlines, the Great Train Robbery took place, the Dartford Tunnel and the National Theatre opened and a band from Liverpool started doing rather well. Stuart Maconie uses She Loves You by the Beatles as a starting point to reflect on Britain in that year, as he explores social change, optimism and the impact of the Fab Four.
