Documentary (BBC)- Synth Britannia – The History Of The Synthesizer In 70’s And 80’s Music [Video]

Another fantastic documentary on the rise of Synthesizers in modern music, from the early room sized modular synths from the 70’s to the portable and cheap synths that helped categorize the distinctive sound of the late 70’s and 80’s.

As well as showing us vintage synth geeks an impressive amount of hardware porn- it gives us some insight into the political and aesthetic culture of the 80’s and the genesis of some of the most influential and creative groups ever.
