around the clock around the world

One of the most important - and subsequently iconic - albums of 1973 came from Paul McCartney's band Wings. It was their third and most successful album and remains the most celebrated of McCartney's post-Beatles albums. It was 1974's top-selling studio album in the United Kingdom and Australia, and revitalised the ex-Beatle's critical standing. We're revisiting it this weekend in a musical documentary hosted by Josh Jackson and featuring interviews with members of the band and the album's producer Tony Visconti. Band on the Run airs on Saturday at 07:00 GMT (simultaneously on our FM networks in New Zealand and Taiwan) with repeats on Sunday at 05:00 and 20:00 GMT, and on Tuesday at 07:00 GMT (also on our FM network in New Zealand).
