The way we were:
We look at the origins of the Northern Soul Scene, understand just exactly what is Northern Soul and what has made it so special to so many people for over thirty years.
We look at the clubs, from The Torch to the Blackpool Mecca to the legendary Wigan Casino. We begin to understand just what the magic was that kept people going week in and week out and why those records are so valuable.
Sex, drugs and northern soul:
We look at the fashions , the record dealers, the promoters, and the seedier side of the scene, the sex and the drugs. Then we look at the recent past and the future and we close with a moving and touching tribute by so many people whose lives were touched by this phenomenon.
Motorcity -Part One:
We look at the reunion in Detroit in the late Eighties of most of the legendary Motown acts who brought the world the classic Motown Sound. We see the reunion in glorious never before seen archive footage. So many of these artists have now passed away, but we see them share their hopes and dreams and get to sing in the studio once again, after so many years.
Motorcity - Part Two: In the fifth disc, we continue the story of the reunion of the classic Tamla-Motown stars. We then look at the magic of the annual 'Togetherness' weekenders at Fleetwood, where every year in October, two and a half thousand eager soul fans flock to dance their hearts out for three days and nights continuously, as if the outside world has ceased to exist
