Factory Records, the Hacienda club, Tony Wilson, Happy Mondays, etc, etc. '24 Hour Party People' is an affectionate and humorous trip through Manchester's monster music scene in the 80s and 90s. The soundtrack as you'd expect is blinding and Steve Coogan's portrayal of Wilson is spooky. A film that stands on it's own as an excellent near tragi-comedy, but within its historical context... it's bloody mad!

Julien Temple has spent the past few years collecting footage from every single Glastonbury Festival, ranging from outtakes from the film Nicolas Roeg made about the 1971 event to amateur home videos collected from the attendees themselves.

Filmed in 1986 at a Maryland concert arena parking lot before a heavy metal show, this is an unvarnished, fascinating and Spinal Tap..esque anthropological study of American metal heads in their mid-'80s glory. A shed load of extras make up for the feature's 25 minute running time (though the bit with one now middle aged participant's exhaustive explanation of his record collection comes close to a cure for insomnia). find out more...

Self-confessed in-it-for-life metaller Sam Dunn is narrator and guide in this erudite documentary about that most misunderstood and derided of musical genres, heavy metal. Dunn is an anthropologist and, as such, intends to challenge outsiders' perceptions about the clichés of satanism, spots and sexual confusion with an investigation of the realities inside the metal scene and its many sub-genres. Along the way he speaks to metallers of note Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maid find out more...
