The Story of Skinhead with Don Letts

"This thoughtful, troubling film from Don Letts shows how a joyful movement became hijacked by thugs and bigots. To the point where even the title of this programme will be off-putting to some. But the precursor to all the hooliganism was a teen obsession with Jamaican ska. Kevin Rowland recalls, 'We saw the Pioneers, we saw Desmond Dekker and we loved them. It was completely multiracial.' And Letts is at pains to celebrate both the fashion before the fascism – reflected in increasingly ugly 70s archive – and the style revival."

Swedish TV Documentary: New Order 'The Story Of Blue Monday'

"I år är det 30 år sen New Order släppte Blue Monday. I Hitlåtens historia berättas det om hur New Order reste sig ur en personlig tragedi och med Blue Monday tog ett slutgiltigt kliv från rock till dansmusik. Låten är en modern klassiker men också en stilstudie i bandbråk, klantigheter och hur man kan slå försäljningsrekord och samtidigt gå med förlust

Många låtar vill kallas klassiker och banbrytande. Få förtjänar det på riktigt. Men New Orders Blue Monday klarar alla testen. Den lät som ljudet av framtiden när den släpptes. Och 30 år senare har den fortfarande inte passerat bäst-före-datum.

Blue Monday är också ljudet av ett band som hittar sig själva. Tre år tidigare spelade medlemmarna i New Order i Joy Division. Men när sångaren Ian Curtis tog livet av sig 1980 fick Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook och Stephen Morris starta om. Det skulle till ett publikupplopp för att få dom att hitta sin egen identitet.

Med Blue Monday byggde inte bara New Order helt nya instrument. De byggde en bro mellan rocken och dansmusiken. Men om New Order gjorde alla rätt i studion, gick desto mer fel utanför. Blue Monday har ett av musikhistoriens mest mytomspunna omslag. Bland annat för att det sägs ha varit så dyrt att tillverka att skivan gick med förlust.

Och sen många år tillbaka är New Order ett splittrat band efter ett infekterat bråk. Men i Hitlåtens historia pratar samtliga medlemmar om Blue Monday, en av musikvärldens piggaste 30-åringar.

Måndag 16 december 22.15 i SVT2 och SVT Play"

Science and Islam: The Islamic Golden Age

"Physicist Jim Al-Khalili travels through Syria, Iran, Tunisia and Spain to tell the story of the great leap in scientific knowledge that took place in the Islamic world between the 8th and 14th centuries. Its legacy is tangible, with terms like algebra, algorithm and alkali all being Arabic in origin and at the very heart of modern science – there would be no modern mathematics or physics without algebra, no computers without algorithms and no chemistry without alkalis.

He discovers how medieval Islamic scholars helped turn the magical and occult practice of alchemy into modern chemistry and argues that these scholars are among the first people to insist that all scientific theories are backed up by careful experimental observation, bringing a rigour to science that didn’t really exist before."
