TV: Living in ‘66

Fifty years after England won the World Cup, the BBC takes a closer look at the Swinging Sixties. Going deeper than fashion, football and Beatles fandom, the regional documentaries will feature archive footage and ordinary people’s memories of this period. Charlie Hardwick presents the North East edition, exploring how Tyneside was being redesigned architecturally and socially.

CD: A Moon Shaped Pool

Radiohead’s latest offering hit the virtual shelves last month and can be purchased in its physical incarnation from June 17.

It’s the innovative act’s first studio album since 2011’s The King of Limbs and their sixth to hit the number one spot.

Completing the trilogy by Stephen King that began with Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, End of Watch also stands as a tense, chilling novel.

He is, however, about to mysteriously compel several people to commit suicide before initiating a suicide epidemic.
