Synth Britannia


We have raved many times about Synth Britannia, the 2009 British documentary that documented the rise of synthpop music from the late 70s to early 80s and included extensive interviews and rare clips from The Human League, Heaven 17, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Cabaret Voltaire, Vince Clark and OMD amongst others. Because it was shown on the BBC, the only way to watch/steam it was to use a computer in the UK (or trick your computer into having the BBC site believe it was). Chopped up clips have appeared on YouTube for awhile now, but finally, an uninterupted full verision is available on YouTube. We are not sure how long this link will last, so catch it while you can.
