Dancing to Rock 'n' Roll, London, 18 September 1956. 'Barbara Young, of North Kensington, and Nigel Davies, of Edmonton, both aged 17, demonstrate a few poses from the rock 'n' roll repertoire. This is the sort of dancing that rhythm-crazed youngsters do in the aisles of cinemas showing the film 'Rock Around the Clock'. Bill Haley, the six foot American guitar player whose band gives the film its riotous beat, is worried about the news that a number of British cities have banned the film for fear of riots. 'Hope it doesn't mean I'll be banned', he told a Daily Herald reporter'.
