In the early eighties, best friends Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward arrived at the YWCA in London, with their sights set on careers in journalism and the media - but that wasn't to be. London was the most vibrant and culturally innovative of places, and within the whirl of clubs, parties and new friends, a chance meeting with former Sex Pistol Paul Cook changed everything. Moving into Malcolm McLaren's old office, they started rehearsing and singing background vocals for Paul's new band, before teaming up with Sara's college friend Siobhan, and forming their own group. It wasn't long before they'd made their first appearance on 'Top of the Pops,' wearing clothes they'd made themselves, and not sure which camera to look at. Who could have imagined that this would be the birth of one of the biggest-selling female bands of all time? Bananarama!
