Keeping the faith - a documentary

A well made documentary about the Northern Soul scene produced by the BBC. The documentary is presented by Paul Mason, an economics journalist, who (mis)spent his youth in the underground club scene in the north of England in the late 70's and 80's. This is one of the best documentaries ever made about the scene. Fran Franklin, a Wigan Casino stalwart from back in the day, and one of the dance advisor for the up and coming film by Elaine Constantine, 'Northern Soul - The Film', is also featured in the program. Fran unfortunately departed this world on the 6th May (2014) to dance in a much greater place - God bless Fran, KTF.
