Who Breaks A Butterfly On A Wheel

This is the story of the Rolling Stones' traumatic summer of 1967.

The programme looks at the events and repercussions surrounding a highly publicised drug bust on a party held at Redlands - Keith Richard's Sussex country home.

The programme takes its name from a piece in The Times written by its traditionally conservative editor William Rees-Mogg.

He questioned the outcome of the court case that saw Richards and Jagger handed custodial sentences for first time offences that were harsher than "any purely anonymous young man" would have received due to their celebrity status.

The programme includes interviews with Sir Rees-Mogg.
