Synth Britannia

I hadn't heard of this (likely because I live in the U.S.) but thanks to @DotAllison I can now try to find a way to watch this documentary!
BBC says it's a "Documentary following a generation of post-punk musicians who took the synthesiser from the experimental fringes to the centre of the pop stage.
In the late 1970s, small pockets of electronic artists including the Human League, Daniel Miller and Cabaret Volatire were inspired by Kraftwerk and JG Ballard and dreamt of the sound of the future against the backdrop of bleak, high-rise Britain."
UK readers can watch it here for the next four days.
