In 1967 Penguin Books published The Mersey Sound, number 10 in the Modern Poets series, by Liverpool poets Roger McGough, Brian Patten and Adrian Henri. It went on to sell over 500,000 copies. In the same year that The Beatles released Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Liverpool established itself as a focal point in the cultural revolution of the Summer of Love.
This hour-long film for BBC Four celebrates the 50th anniversary of the collection, through the eyes of the two surviving poets, Roger McGough and Brian Patten, and their many followers – from Craig Charles and John Cooper Clarke to Willy Russell and Benjamin Zephaniah.
