Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

A series of interviews with the likes of Peter Cook, Sean Connery and Enoch Powell are to be broadcast for the first time.

The recordings were made by the late actor, comedian and broadcaster Bernard Braden during more than 350 meetings with the famous faces of the 1960s.

His conversations with Robert Maxwell, Cilla Black, Lulu and Quentin Crisp have now been edited into an hour-long programme that will be shown on Five this autumn.

1968 Unseen also features new interviews with some of those originally filmed by Braden. Ben Gale, Five's director of programmes, said: “It's a fascinating insight into one of the pivotal years of the 20th century and still resonates today.”
