A season of programmes giving you the chance to see performances from great jazz musicians and documentaries about the period. At the heart of the season is a three-part landmark series charting the development of jazz in Britain - a musical journey which also reflects the enormous social changes of the post-war period. From Stan Tracey to Soweto Kinch, Acker Bilk to Jamie Cullum, the story is told with rare archive footage and testimony from the players themselves. Terence Stamp narrates a series on the assimilation and development of jazz in Britain over the past 60 years. Two distinct scenes emerged in the late 1940s - trad jazz and modern jazz. Postwar Britain saw issues of class, race and the first stirrings of youth rebellion collide in the underground jazz clubs of Soho.
