Thank you! I knew the bbc had to have something like that.
I think i'll spend the afternoon in doculand!


Watched that yesterday - it's not really much of a documentary though, just a playlist with a few text comments. Mostly good stuff although I would have replaced the dreadful Vienna with one of Ultravox's earlier numbers (My Sex) and kicked Howard Jones off completely.

I just don't get why New Order is in that while pure synth acts like Howard Jones isn't? :?


He is in it unfortunately - the only parts I fast forwarded were that and the Pet Shop Boys

Great doco. People who don't like pop will like this one much better. ;)

are you getting it mixed up with the companion show? synth brittania at the bbc?
one is performances the other is more interview based.

I'm in a hurry so this will be a sloppy list.

- The Devil & Daniel Johnston

- A Band Called Death

- Theremin: An Electric Odyssey

- Who's Harry Nilsson (and why's everybody talking about him?)

- When You're Strange (The Doors doc)

There are a bunch of others I can't remember right now, bah!
