In the early days of cable, a scrappy music channel quickly took the country — and a generation — by storm, becoming a cultural phenomenon as it gave artists a platform to push the boundaries of their work, while also doing the same for gender, sex, race, and more. Featuring interviews with the MTV's founders and well as VJs, journalists, and artists including Sting, Billy Idol, Annie Lennox, and Bret Michael, as well as rarely seen archival footage, and a never-before-broadcast interview with David Bowie, this documentary details the rise of this powerhouse network, its influence on a generation and music lovers everywhere, and examines its place in the pop culture landscape. —G.H.
