A NUMBER of readers have commented on the Tales of Rock 'n' Roll series currently showing in the Arena slot on BBC 2. They have noticed that two of the programmes have borne a striking similarity to features in the Rock Holidays series which we ran three years ago.

Three weeks ago the Arena film told the real story behind Buddy Holly's Peggy Sue; and tonight's Arena film is about Highway 61 revisited. Both subjects were covered in our Rock Holidays series. Andy Bull, the former Weekend editor who wrote the Peggy Sue feature, developed the Rock Holidays theme into a book Coast to Coast that is published this month ( pounds 5.99) by Black Swan. The book is a rock fan's tour of the US and is a good read.
