The Smiths on BBC Culture Show

Last month, the BBC program “The Culture Show” ran a special on The Smiths tied to the 30th anniversary of the release of “Hand in Glove,” a half-hour examination of the band’s ever-growing legacy through “the look, the lyrics, the issues and the riffs.” You can now watch the entire “The Smiths: Not Like Any Other Love” special below via uploader hipsterdisco2.

From the BBC’s synopsis:

“In this half-hour Culture Show special, fellow Mancunian and lifelong fan Tim Samuels sets out to find out why The Smiths have such a special place in the hearts of a generation. The Smiths were only around for five years in the mid-eighties, but to this day the sentiment their music evokes is strong.  Samuels pays visits to a variety of dedicated fans including fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, poet Simon Armitage, Labour MP Kerry McCarthy and Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher to analyse the look, the lyrics, the issues and the riffs.”
