Jarvis Cocker uncovers the birth and development of the fanzine.

In the first of two programmes, Jarvis Cocker uncovers the history of fanzines - those little home-made publications designed and made by fans of popular phenomena. With the help of fanzine-makers, collectors and experts, including Roger Sabin, Teal Triggs, Jon Savage, and John Robb, Jarvis discovers the origin of fanzines in science fiction, long before the explosion of home-made fanzines during the punk rock days of the late 1970s.

Presented by Jarvis Cocker

Produced by Bob Dickinson.
