Some questions: What makes great Rock'n'Roll bands work? Why and how do they do what they do? Why are the best bands more than the sum of their parts? Why do we love them so much? What is the DNA of a great rock 'n' roll band? The series breaks this mythical beast down into its constituent parts: singer, guitarist, drummer as well as the shadowy 'other one', whose face we don't quite know but without whom the magic wouldn't happen. The evidence is examined closely in forensic studies of what makes these rock 'n' roll types tick.

Episode summary:

After five documentaries exploring the DNA of the rock 'n' roll band and the roles in the band, from lead singer through guitarist to drummer, the series goes live with Jonathan Ross at BBC Television Centre as the nation decides who the greatest rock 'n' rollers ever are. Jonathan is joined by a panel of rock 'n' roll experts - Lauren Laverne of 6 Music and Kenickie; Stewart Copeland of The Police; and Mark Radcliffe, narrator of the documentary series, Radio 2 presenter and member of The Shirehorses - to debate the UK's favourites, accompanied by a live audience, a house band and some of the great rock 'n' roll songs. The programme follows an online vote on the I'm in a Rock 'n' Roll Band! website, with the top three bands, singers, guitarists, drummers and bass players unveiled and debated on the show. Advocates including Al Murray, Suggs, Mark Ronson and Sharleen Spiteri speak on behalf of their favourites and lock horns with the panel of experts, with the nation then invited to vote on each category. The results are announced at the end of the show, crowning the nation's favourite band of all time and unveiling a fantasy band consisting of the nation's favourite singer, guitarist, drummer and bass player.
