Stars, drugs and death: Rock'r'Roll circus is out

Today on Culture, we transport you back to the late 1960s, and the iconic Paris nightclub the Rock’n’Roll Circus. For three action-packed years the club became famous for the celebrities that changed their plans to pass through its doors… And it’s there –not in his bathtub- that Jim Morrison died… according to the club’s founder Sam Bernett. He tells Catherine Nicholson about HIS version of the Doors’ singer’s death, and more, in today’s Culture show.
