Video: ‘Synth Britannia’ documentary on BBC

Tonight, those of you in the U.K. will be able to watch what looks to be a great new documentary on BBC Four: the 90-minute “Synth Britannia,” which tracks the rise of British synthpop in the late ’70s and early ’80s. The doc features appearances by Vince Clarke, Bernard Sumner, Gary Numan, Neil Tennant and Martin Gore, who, in one of the excerpts from the program, wryly notes that the early synth music he and his contemporaries made appealed “to alienated youth everywhere — and Germans.”
