Looks interesting, don't have time to watch now though.

(P.S. would fit in TV/iplayer must watches nicely).

It's in my backlog of things to watch on my generic hard drive recorder.

I thought the archive footage of the industrialist stuff from the 70s was great and they did well to get an interview with Richard H Kirk of Cabaret Voltaire fame (not an easy man to get an interview with) and Throbbing Gristle. Also good to hear from John Foxx and Wolfgang Flur. Also related to this is Synth Britannia at the BBC with some great video clips and live performances.

There is another in this series tomorrow night. Krautrock - The Rebirth Of Germany (BBC4 9.00 pm). Neu!, Faust, Can and Kraftwerk and the introduction of Electronica between 1968-1977. I know that a few folks on here are interested in that sort of stuff. This is followed at 10.00 pm by Kraftwerk - The Minimum/Maximum Concert footage from 2004.

Nice! Cheers for the heads up on that.

London based Krautrock fans get yourself over to Motorik tonight, Bardens Boudoir, Stoke Newington.

I went, it was really good, just the sort of ambient indulgent stuff I like.
