As you must have heard by now, BBC 4 will be showing a “documentary following a generation of post-punk musicians who took the synthesiser from the experimental fringes to the centre of the pop stage” in Synth Britannia, which gets its first airing this coming Friday at 9 pm BST (20:00 UTC).

Its seems BBC 4 is spoiling us, since, a week later, they will be screening Krautrock – The Rebirth of Germany. This clip is rather pedestrian but the show as a whole should be well worth watching. Sound on Sound has some more details.

  1. Great stuff! Yes shock horror, BBC finally make TV for people like us. The various programmes about vintage electronics like ‘Micromen’ and ‘electric dreams’ have been great too. Wondering if Genesis P will actual feature in Synth Britannia in interview. I doubt it. Mind you, nowadays he comes across more like Barbara Windsor – quite Beeb friendly.
