just a short clip, not particularly interesting but the doc mentioned below caught my eye:

Vox Pop: How Dartford Powered the British Beat Boom

In the early 60s, British pop groups succeeded in conquering the world. But as the Beatles, the Stones, the Shadows, the Dave Clark Five, the Yardbirds and many others took to the stage, they had one thing in common. They were sharing the platform with Vox amplifiers. Some of the nation's top professionals, including Queen's Brian May and Bruce Welch of the Shadows, along with the factory workers of the time, recount the story of how an unlikely small company in unglamourous Dartford hit the big time and defined the sound of the 60s in Britain. Presented by Iain Lee.
