Rewind The 60s

Rewind The 60s: Season 1, Episode 5

It’s our final episode of Rewind the 60s and we’ve reached the end of the decade, focusing on the years 1968 and 1969. On the Rewind guest couch today is John Craven, pioneer of children’s news and now a reporter on the hugely popular BBC show Countryfile. John tells Lulu about starting out in BBC local news in the north east at the tail end of the 60s, and how he got his break as a broadcaster: the newsreader rang in sick one morning, John took the microphone, and a legend was born.
