The creation of the band’s second album, which took the gothic synth-pop foundations of the band and combined them with arena-ready anthems leading to critical acclaim and the international hit singles Mothers Talk, Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World. With full co-operation of the band members, this documentary explores how the album was recorded, leaving its indelible imprint on New Wave.
Extra: Highlights of a performance by the band at the BBC Radio Theatre in London. After forming as synth pop duo in the early 1980s, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith achieved huge success on both sides of the Atlantic, and as a result of such a huge fan base over 30,000 people applied to be part of the audience for this intimate gig. Here, the boys from Bath perform their classic hits, including Mad World, Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World and Sowing the Seeds of Love.
