Doku: Heavy Metal Britannia

(Youtube Direktmetal, via Uli)

Anfang März lief auf BBC die Doku „Heavy Metal Britannia“, die jetzt ein netter Mensch bei Youtube hochgeladen hat, damit alle was davon haben. Snip von der BBC, die restlichen Videos nach dem Klick:

Nigel Planer narrates a documentary which traces the origins and development of British heavy metal from its humble beginnings in the industrialised Midlands to its proud international triumph. […]

By the 80s its originators had fallen foul of punk rock, creative stasis or drug and alcohol abuse. But a new wave of British heavy metal was ready to take up the crusade. With the success of bands like Iron Maiden, it went global.

Contributors include Lemmy, Sabbath's Tony Iommi, Ian Gillan from Deep Purple, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden and Saxon's Biff Byford.
