Generation 66 - BBC4 doc
« on: August 01, 2016, 01:03:14 PM »
Did anyone see the Generation 66 doc on BBC4 last night?   

Less than 5 mins in and this nugget comes up

"In 1966, 40% of the population were under 25 - including every member of the Beatles and the Stones"

Every member apart from Bill Wyman, John Lennon, Ringo Starr.....   Why don't they bother to check these things?     

And when they touch upon Georgie Fame, why dig up probably the only clip in existence of him playing the guitar!?

I didn't bother going any further than that....

Just started watching it on YT. Unless she was referring to the start of 1966, she was right about Ringo and John. However, after July 1940, they would have been 26...
