Description

Billy Fury became an overnight sensation in the 1950s and The Sound of Fury, a landmark album in British Rock & Roll history. This new film recounts the story of Billy Fury and the birth of British popular music. Although it may have been inspired by Elvis and American R&B artists, Britain produced its own Rock and Roll heroes with the unique sound of Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Cliff Richard, Joe Brown and many more great artists. Shot entirely in HD with unique, unseen archive and photos, this programme highlights Fury`s contribution to popular music and the reason why Britain`s original teen idol had more Top 40 hits than the Beatles during the 1960s. Featuring exclusive home movie footage and interviews with Lord Puttnam, Mark Kermode, Amanda Barrie, Vince Eager, Imelda May, Ray Connolly, Spencer Leigh, Clem Cattini, Len Goodman, Boz Boorer, Billy`s mum, Jean Wycherley and many more; this is a must-see programme on the James Dean of British rock and roll.
