This won't be of immediate use to anyone as it is something I recorded several weeks ago but Sky Arts being what it is, it will no doubt be repeated at regular interviews.

I watched this last night and did not have high hopes based on the title but it turned out to be a thoroughly absorbing history of the band's entire career, intelligently edited together from interviews and performances that they gave for MTV over a period of about 25 years.

It really reminded me of why I love the band and was so excited by them when I first heard them. And it made me want to listen to the records again which is always a good outcome for a documentary.

Highly recommended if you get a chance to see it.

Have just ordered the full box of MTV performances (of which this was apparently originally a part) for what looks like a bargain price.
