Rudeboy: the Story of Trojan Records (was on Sky Arts a month ago) .

Tremendous mix of documentary and restaging of key moments in the rise of Jamaican music in the UK. Interviews with many of the ska pioneers I thought were long gone. Shows how the music bought young black and white people together for the first time in the late 60s against a backdrop of Enoch Powell, the National Front and overt racism.

But of course the music steals the show.

Punk and the new wave years. Great music but Anne Nightingale comes across as this “I was responsible for punk rock, oh and John Peel” and every time she self promoted the more I lost respect for her. Shame

That was excellent, as was the documentary about Rock Against Racism.

There was also a very good documentary on Sky Arts recently about the history of music festivals, I think it was a repeat but still worth watching.

I agree - it was excellent and I learnt loads more about the musical magician.

Hitsville: The Making of Motown on Sky Documentaries. Not expecting much but this turned out to be a fantastic programme. Presented by Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson with appearances by Stevie Wonder (including his unbelievable audition aged 11) and a who’s who of soul music, this is a really insightful look at the history of the label, it’s artists, song-writers etc.

Plenty about Detroit and the role of the civil rights movement too. Not so much about the legal disputes, drugs and difficult relationships. Uplifting and highly recommended whether you like the music or not. 10/10

The thread title clearly says documentaries AND films.

Hip Hop Evolution on Netflix.

Saw a docu about electronic club music, Ibiza, superstar DJs...can't remember the name.
