In this episode "Producer pop", from the BBC Bristol television music documentary series "Popular song: Soundtrack of the century", popular music of the 1950s-early 1960's was transformed by record producers like Mitch Miller, Don Kirshner (Aldon Music) and Phil Spector. Various songwriters from Tin Pan Alley, the Brill Building, and "The Wall of Sound" helped reshape the sound of pop music with the growing influence of rock and roll. Many writers, songwriters, and producers of the era were featured on this program. This broadcast aired in America (New York?) on Ovation TV. Various commercials are included.
