2 stars This is very disappointing! It was such a big deal for fans and press when announced that BBC was making a Genesis documentary and every member would contribute. But, here we have a documentary that its focus is the their 80's phase, where Steve Hackett doesn't exist and such classics for the band as Foxtrot and Nursery Crime are 2 minutes worthy of screen for the director...

Not to mention that many facts were not included (such as Calling All Stations - ps. I don't care about the quality, a documentary should tell a story) and they picked like 5 different people to talk about the band, supposedly very important music related people, but actually... no one know who they are...

Not to mention too that one of the things every fan was expecting (the interview with all of them together) was mashed up to like 5 minutes worth of material. Pretty pathetic really. No one can possibly really learn the history of the band with this and this just push the boundaries of really bad documentaries for classic musical acts.
