Bold, decadent, ambitious and sometimes of questionable taste, there is no better symbol of the Eighties than the rise of the music video. With the launch of MTV in 1981, extraordinary music was suddenly matched with daring film-making in a medium that had budgets to blow and no existing rules. The Music Videos That Shaped The 80’s is a celebration of the ground-breaking music videos of the decade and the explosion of London-based talent that contributed to them. Artists including Bob Geldof, Herbie Hancock, Roger Taylor and Richie Sambora, and directors David Mallet, Russell Mulcahy and Kevin Godley, discuss some of the key videos of the period, from Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ to The Buggles’ ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’, aptly the first ever video to be shown on MTV. Also featuring music by Bon Jovi, The Boomtown Rats, The Cure and David Bowie, this documentary reveals how the most memorable videos of the decade helped to redefine the music industry forever.
