Billy Fury: The Sound Of Fury (1 x 90′) – Recounts the story of Billy Fury and the birth of British popular music. He became an overnight sensation in the 1950s and his first album, The Sound Of Fury (released in 1960), has become a landmark record in British rock ‘n’ roll history. This new film is shot entirely in HD with unique, unseen archive and photos. It highlights Fury’s contribution to popular music and the reason why Britain’s original teen idol had more Top 40 hits than The Beatles during the Sixties. It features exclusive home movie footage and interviews with Lord Puttnam, Mark Kermode, Amanda Barrie, Vince Eager, Imelda May, Ray Connolly, Spencer Leigh, Clem Cattini, Len Goodman, Boz Boorer, Billy’s mum Jean Wycherley, and many more.
