In June 1973, the Russian rival to Concorde, the Tupolev TU144, crashed at the Paris Air Show, killing the crew of six and eight people on the ground. At the time the Soviet Union and the West were competing to produce the world's first supersonic passenger aircraft. Former British test pilot, John Farley, recalls the day of the fatal crash of the plane dubbed 'Concordski'.

The legendary frontman of The Clash and punk rock icon Joe Strummer was an avid radio listener and music collector; between 1998 and 2001 he hosted his London Calling radio show for the BBC World Service playing an eclectic mix of punk, reggae, folk, jazz and world music.
