The BBC last night premiered a one-hour documentary about Soft Cell that recounts the ups and downs of the early-’80s synthpop stars, culminating with the reunion last September of Marc Almond and Dave Ball to play together for the first time in 15 years — and the last time ever.

“Say Hello, Wave Goodbye” features new interviews with Ball and Almond and fellow musicians including Andy Bell of Erasure and David McAlmont, plus footage of rehearsals for Soft Cell’s London farewell gig last September and footage from the concert at the O2 Arena itself.

If you’re in the U.K., you can watch it via the BBC. Or check out the YouTube version below.
