Something Else

March 24th, 2014, 9:37 pm

I’ve been researching the various television programmes about the Cov Music Scene with help from Garry Campbell over at BBC Birmingham. Thus I’ve been able to have a look at the Something Else programme that went out December 15th 1980 that had a great item on Martin Bowes Alternative Sounds. Which is an excuse to finally post the photos he has from the production, these where taken by Don Coutts then part of the BBC Community Programme Unit who went on to do some pretty decent television – check out his production company site here.
