(And as my bias is towards my upbringing as High Church Anglican, all the churches shown in this programme felt pretty alien and different, with the emphasis on being visibly touched emotionally by God rather than on the ritual of worship. Which I guess people from outside my tradition see as stifling. And it's kinda interesting to me on a personal level that despite not being a churchgoer any more, & defining myself as agnostic, I still have such a strong preference for type of service & branch of Christianity.)
The next programme of the evening was the first episode of Pop Britannia, which I don't think I even knew we'd recorded. This episode covered the 50s - pre-Beatles rock'n'roll. Quite a lot of coverage of how the "establishment" of the entertainment industry thought it was just a fad that would pass quickly - so moving their young stars on into more "proper" entertainment jobs after they made their names as rock'n'roll singers. Coz that was what you did - you sang a bit, you did a bit of acting, you performed in variety shows, you were an all-round entertainer. Also weird to see was the styles that were considered "edgy" in the 50s, which just look terribly polite now. Partly, obviously, because shorn of their cultural context they're just "things ones parents might have worn".
