Bob Dylan recreated in Inside Out

Friday 12 January 2007 at 7.30pm on BBC One.

One of rock ‘n’ roll’s most iconic images of Bob Dylan is recreated in BBC One’s Inside Out (North West).

Legendary photographer Barry Feinstein captured Dylan at the height of his fame during his 1966 world tour. One picture shows Dylan surrounded by a group of children in the Dock Road area of Liverpool.

“They were all like waifs,” recalls Feinstein. “They weren’t your Beverley Hills kids. Whatever happened to these kids, who are they?”

Dylan fan Chris Hockenhull sets out to recreate the photograph for Inside Out by tracking down the ten children who appeared in the original picture.

“Dylan was the coolest man on the planet in ’66. His look was almost as influential as his sound,” says Chris. “My favourite shot of the Liverpool sequences is the one with a whole host of children all crammed into a doorway with this sharper than sharp guy right in the middle of them.”

Chris traces the ten who appeared in the original shot and eight of them agree to recreate the photo.

The results can be seen in the new series of Inside Out North West.
