Seeking the Soul of a City

BAFTA-winning broadcaster and journalist Stuart Cosgrove presents the second instalment of his award-winning Soul Trilogy, this time focusing in on 1968. At that time, a deeply divided Memphis was identified as a soul town but was soon to be forever linked with the assassination of Martin Luther King. Against that backdrop, Cosgrove looks at the fate of Stax Records which lost its most revered artist, Otis Redding, at the end of the preceding year. Chaired by Phil Harding.
