LATE 1981 DOCUMENTARY BBC ABOUT VIRGIN
Interview with Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin.
The program about the beginnings and development of Virgin Records.
Branson in 1972 launched the record label Virgin Records in which he installed a residential recording studio, The Manor Studio.
He leased out studio time to fledgling artists, including multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield,
whose debut album Tubular Bells was the first release for Virgin Records and became a chart-topping best-seller.
Virgin signed such controversial bands as the Sex Pistols, which other companies were reluctant to sign.
It also won praise for exposing the public to such obscure avant-garde music.
Branson's Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s
