In 1981, a new tv channel was born that was different than any other channel. It was a new format for young people and an outlet for musicians and filmmakers. Starring Tori Amos, Jack Antonoff, and Jeff Ayeroff.
This documentary interviews the people that started up this new channel – a channel that they weren’t sure was going to last. It’s a documentary that gives us the background to how the birth of MTV happened and what surrounded the epitome of success that came with it. The documentary takes us through the years as MTV continues to change and grow from what it originally started off as. I thought the show was informative, but there wasn’t anything new that was shocking or unknown. It’s the basic history of the channel, but it’s still worth a watch to understand where the creators were coming from.
