Paul McCartney at the BBC

Johnnie Walker presents a portrait of Sir Paul McCartney, drawn from BBC archive interviews and performances. The programme starts with the break-up of The Beatles and traces McCartney's career as a solo artist up to the present. It's made up entirely of rare BBC archive interviews and performances, and presents a fascinating picture of one of Britain's greatest musicians. Among other treats we hear Sir Paul deconstructing "Band On The Run" for a television ad for a domestic radio station, and recording a session at the famous Abbey Road studios.
