Pop music "stars" in many of the most successful of British films, such as "Trainspotting" and "Human Traffic". Even pop artists themselves have been known to appear in British movies, including a young Cliff Richard to the more recent Spice Girls. This is a systematic guide to where and how pop music appears in British cinema. It references all British feature films using pop music from the 1950s to the end of the 20th century. There are listings of "band" movies, such as The Beatles' "A Hard Days Night", and indexes to musicians, directors and film titles. The book also illustrates and describes the changing ways of using pop in British film.
