The inclusion of an interview with convicted paedophile Jonathan King caused criticism of the BBC, including by Conservative MP Rob Wilson and the charity Safermedia, and it was accused of hypocrisy as it has taken the decision not to broadcast footage of other sex offenders such as Dave Lee Travis and the late Sir Jimmy Savile.

In too deep
5 October 2014 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Genesis is a band started out in public school and went through various incarnations. They were a leading band in the Prog Rock movement and excelled when their lead singer Peter Gabriel started to dress up as vegetables, go for more theatrics and started to gain more attention than the rest of the band.

After Gabriel the band decided that the drummer Phil Collins should become a vocalist and in the 1980s following Collins divorce, Collins zoomed as a solo artist and the band became more of a pop/rock band. With the release of the Invisible Touch album they became a super-band.

The trouble with this type of documentaries is where bands have had a falling out, you can never get the ex-members in one room. Here Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett rejoin the former band members and reminiscence, talk about the ups and down. You also get various fans talking about the band who despite their prog rock roots became a mainstream worldwide rock band.

It is revealing, informative, although many fans of Genesis would know some of the issues raised such as the departure of Gabriel (he deals with in his song, Solsbury Hill) and how the rest of the band reacted with Collin's increasing fame in the 1980s as a solo artist and actor.

The documentary covers the solo careers of Gabriel (the irony that his song Sledgehammer replaced Invisible Touch as number 1 in the US pop charts) and Collins as well as the side projects of the other members. One big omission was that after Collins left Genesis, Banks and Rutherford released Calling all Stations in 1997 with a new lead vocalist and that part was not covered.
