Its 1962, and the movie would start to lay out a successful formula for most of the other movies that would follow in the series. Of course when we speak about  Dr No, most of us will remember Bonds introduction at the casino, Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder emerging from the sea in ‘that’ bikini or the scene where the spider crawls up Sean Connery’s arm. But what about this scene….and in particular, one specific moment. James Bond and Honey Ryder have just met the evil Dr No in his underground lair. Before crushing an ornament with his metal hand and telling the pair of  SPECTRE’s dastardly plan to hold the world to ransom, they are led away. As they walk up a small set of steps, Bond stops, noticing an oil painting on an easel to his right …. The painting was a portrait of Arthur Wellesly the first Duke o

    Episode 020 - David Frost, Emil Savundra, and the trial by television

    23/09/2018 Duración: 53min

    Episode 020 of the Rainbow Valley podcast – telling the stories that made the swinging decade. Emil Savundra, for a brief period in the late sixties, was probably the most reviled man in the UK. A Sri Lankan swindler, the collapse of his Fire, Auto and Marine Insurance Company left about 400,000 motorists in the United Kingdom without coverage. As a post-war black marketeer, Savundra committed bribery and fraud on an international scale before settling in the UK to sell low-cost insurance in the fast-growing automotive market. By defaulting on mandatory securities, he funded a lavish lifestyle and travelled in fashionable circles. This attracted the attention of the press, who uncovered evidence of major fraud. In a TV interview with David Frost, Savundra demonstrated contempt for his defrauded customers (some of whom were in the studio audience) and denied any moral responsibility. That particular tv show witnessed the birth of trial by television and is a fascinating piece of broadcasting history.   Ladies

    Episode 017 - Hits and Headlines of 1963

    11/07/2018 Duración: 02h06min

    1963 - a massive year in terms of news events.    A year that would see an increase in tensions in America as the battle for racial equality raged on. It would be the year in which a scandal in the UK involving call girls, Russian spies and MPs , would eventually bring down the government.  The Beatles would begin their dominance of the UK chart signalling the beginning of the British invasion, the Russians would make history as the first woman blasts off into space and Martin Luther King would declare to the world that he had a dream.  Along with the Great Train Robbery, the beginning of what would become known as the Moors Murders, the death of the Pope, and the assassination of the US president it truly was one of the most remarkable twelve months in the swinging decade. Ladies and gentlemen, Rainbow Valley is proud to present the story of the hits and headlines from 1963.

    Episode 016 - The Hammersmith Nude Murders

    02/04/2018 Duración: 01h04min

    In London in the 1880s, the city was gripped by fear. A killer was prowling the cobbled, fog heavy streets of Whitechapel murdering prostitutes in a chilling reign of terror. Fast forward seventy years and a new killer was on the loose, this time, not in the impoverished Victorian East End, but towards the west. Again his victims of choice would be prostitutes. Believed to have claimed anything up to possibly seven lives, or even more, his identity, again like the infamous Jack, was never discovered….or was it? The newspapers dubbed him The Nude Killer or Jack the Stripper and his crimes are now pretty much forgotten. At the time, his crimes led to one of the largest manhunts in British history with some famous suspects along the way. There would be links to high ranking officials, world famous sportsmen and the Profumo affair.   Ladies and gentlemen, Rainbow Valley is proud to present the story of The Hammersmith Nude Murders.   This and other episodes are available on our website  rainbowvalley.lib

  • Episode 015 - Matt Monro

    Episode 015 - Matt Monro

    27/01/2018 Duración: 02h15min

    It can certainly be safe to say that the 1960s produced some of the most dramatic changes in the world of popular music. From the early days of rock and roll, through to the swinging beat scene, the British invasion, American surf music and right through to the San Francisco sound of the peace and love generation, there was a voice that was there from the beginning. That voice was still there at the end of the decade and beyond. Sadly that voice is largely unknown to today’s generation. Some of today’s kids would probably only be vaguely familiar with it if they are fans of some of the biggest and most popular movies to come out of that decade. Matt Monro was described as the UK’s answer to Frank Sinatra, a label he detested. For Matt Monro was not an answer to anything. Matt Monro was unique, he was his own entity, had his own marvellous style, and was possibly the finest male popular music singer the UK has ever produced.   You can follow the podcast on Twitter @rv_podcast Join our Facebook group Web

    Episode 014 - Dr No And The Birth Of James Bond On The Big Screen

    06/01/2018 Duración: 02h44min

    The story of James Bond on the big screen is a tale of highs and lows, ups and downs, twists and turns.  The story of the making of the movies themselves is worthy of an Ian Fleming novel in its own right.  It is the story has taken over sixty years to tell, and is still being told today. As important to this story as Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig is the story of three other men.  The three men who between them managed to bring one of the most successful and well-loved movie franchises to the big screen. No journey into the world of cinematic Bond can begin without a look of the importance of Messrs’ Fleming, Broccoli and Saltzman.   To many people, James Bond is only an entity that can be found on the big screen. This, of course, is not the case. Bond was born long before 1962 when Sean Connery first introduced himself to Sylvia Trench at the casino in Dr No.   Many have said that Ian Fleming himself was the basis for the character of Bond, but as you will soon hear, the inspiration for

    Rainbow Valley - Episode 013   1962 – A year of worldwide upheaval, the continuing space race and the death of Hollywood’s biggest sex symbol. The year would witness one of the most devastating air disasters as an Air France Boeing 707 would crash in Paris, John Glen would become the first American to orbit the earth and Albert Sabin would develop the first oral polio vaccine. Algeria Burundi and Jamaica would all gain their independence this year and the Telstar satellite would provide eth first live transatlantic television pictures. Along with an escape from Alcatraz, the A6 murders and Cuban Missile Crisis bringing the world closer than it’s ever been to all out nuclear war, the soundtrack of the  year was provided by Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and The Tornadoes, oh and a certain group from Liverpool released their first major single this year as well.   Ladies and gentlemen, Rainbow Valley is proud to present the story of the hits and headlines of 1962.   You can follow the podcast on Twitter @rv_podc

  • Episode 012 - The Rolling Stones at Altamont

    Episode 012 - The Rolling Stones at Altamont

    27/10/2017 Duración: 02h25min

    As we discovered in series one, the 1960s signified, for many, a decade of revolution, a decade of hope, a decade of immense change worldwide. We must not forget however that it was also a time of conflict, the cold war and racial tension. Musically, the world moved from the rock and roll era and crooners into the British invasion, folk music and peace and love along with hippies, drugs and Woodstock. If the sixties had ended on August  17th 1969 instead of the 31st December, Woodstock would be considered  a fitting finale to a turbulent decade but instead, just a few months later the sixties dream became its nightmare at another free concert, this time headlined by the Rolling Stones. With support from Santana, Jefferson Airplane and a host of other acts, events would unfold that led to the ugliest scenes in the history of rock music culminating in the deaths of four people. The sixties would end, not so much swinging but reeling towards one of the darkest of days in the world of entertainment in 1969 l

    Episode 011 - The Great Train Robbery

    02/09/2017 Duración: 02h19min

    The Great Train Robbery was the robbery of £2.6 million from a Royal Mail train heading from Glasgow to London on the West Coast Main Line in the early hours of 8 August 1963, at Bridego Railway Bridge, Ledburn, near Mentmore in Buckinghamshire, England.   A robbery that took less than 30 minutes from start to finish, spread over a distance of 28 miles, and would net the gang involved the equivalent of over £38 million in today’s money. The gang consisted of 15 members, four of which , still to this day, were never caught-their names not even known. The robbery was immediately dubbed the crime of the century, and is still spoken about today  for not only the planning and the preciseness of the raid, but also the mistakes and the bungling of the gang that led to their arrest…for some of them that is. For in addition to this there is the story of those that evaded capture for nearly fifty years becoming celebrities halfway around the globe. There is also the story of the police that were involved.

    03/06/2017 Duración: 01h14min

      THE MAKING OF SERGEANT PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND   On June 1st 1967, The Beatles released what was and is still considered by many the greatest album of all time. It was an album of firsts. It featured the first gatefold sleeve, the first time lyrics had ever appeared on a record cover and it was the first album the band would release following their decision to stop touring. It was the most expensive sleeve design in record distribution history featuring a host of celebrities past and present and arguably it can be considered the first album by a musical artist to be discussed in terms of art. Within hours of its release it went multi-platinum and topped the charts around the world. The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK album chart and 15 weeks at number one in the USA. The album is regarded by some as an early concept album that advanced the use of extended form in popular music while continuing the artistic maturity seen on the Beatles previous two albums Rubber Soul and Revolver.

    18/05/2017 Duración: 43min

      THE MAKING OF BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS   The 1960s heralded in a new era in a variety of ways. Society and political events influenced the cultural and art world throughout the decade. The early sixties would begin to be seen as the start of the permissive age. Lady Chatterley and the pill would nudge open the door to  a new world of liberation that would reach out to people’s attitudes, the way they dressed, the music they listened to and the movies they would watch.   1960 brought us Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, which whilst giving the world of celluloid its first flushing toilet; it would also foreshadow an age of more open-minded sensibilities. But just how much would the movie going public be prepared for an adaptation of a novella that told the story of a New York prostitute, her devoted gay best friend, Japanese landlord, and her cat. With Audrey Hepburn in what could potentially have been a career destroying, but eventually became the career defining role of Holly Golightly, the world was more than read

One year , particularly important to the story of the sixties was 1961. It was a year that would divide countries, events would take place that would lay the foundations for potential global nuclear destruction and see the first man escape the confines of the earth’s atmosphere.

At 35 years of age the Georgia born minister was the youngest person to receive the award. Martin Luther King, Jr., was born in Atlanta in 1929, the son of a Baptist minister. He received a doctorate degree in theology and in 1955 organized the first major protest of the civil rights movement: the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott. King adhered to Gandhi’s philosophy of nonviolence and promoted nonaggressive civil disobedience to racial segregation. The peaceful protests he led throughout the American South were o

Join us as we celebrate the 1960’s with the stories surrounding the music and news events of the decade that shook the world.   In the early part of the 1960’s, there was a challenge to country music’s Nashville sound. It came like a pincer movement, with the rival Bakersfield sound on one flank and the seemingly unstoppable British invasion on another. The world of country music would be robbed suddenly of the beloved talents that were Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves who would both die in airplane crashes. Nashville’s pop song structure became more distinct with the gradual adaptation in what became known as Countrypolitan music. This would be brought to the forefront by stars such as Glen Campbell, Charlie Rich, Lynn Anderson and Charley Pride and was characterized through the use of lavish string arrangements with a
