The Alfonz

It’s 1998. Swindon is enjoying a rare moment of success with Billie Piper’s ‘Girlfriend’ at Number One in the charts. Oblivious to this, Charlie nervously makes his way into the unfamiliar Year 2 classroom at his new primary school. Sam is sitting on the carpet, eagerly awaiting the start of lessons. Adam is busy eating crayons in the corner...again. Charlie tentatively sits down near Sam. Sam looks up from his new big boy’s shoes (with real laces) to see a face he doesn’t recognise looking lost and a little upset.

Bee Gees

The Bee Gees, originally made up of three brothers: Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb (died 2012), and Maurice Gibb (died 2003), have been successful for most of their 40-plus years of recording music. They had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a pop act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as a foremost act of the disco music era in the late 1970s.
