    'Jesus Christ, Superstar' at 40

    This week's The Culture Show on BBC2 featured a short piece on the 40th anniversary of the release of the original 'Jesus Christ, Superstar' album. Such was the popularity of Rice and Lloyd Webber's concept album it was only 3 years until it was adapted for the film. The programme includes an interview with Rice and Lloyd Webber as well as a closer look at the artists involved in the original recording including a few excerpts from Murray Head (Judas).

    Viewers in the UK can catch the show on iPlayer. Everyone else will have to satisfy themselves with listening to the original album on Spotify's smarter younger brother, we7.
