Made with the full co-operation of the band, the programme tells the story of one of the most successful British bands in rock history reuniting Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford for the first time since 1975, to tell their story.
Genesis: Sum Of The Parts is a feature-length documentary – from its first beginnings as a band of songwriters in the late 1960s to its final incarnation as a rock giant in the 1990s – via full-blown theatrical progressive rock in the mid-1970s and the stadium pop of the 1980s – Genesis could perplex and enrage the die-hards, whilst exciting and exhilarating newer disciples.
The film recounts an extraordinary musical story, exploring the band’s songwriting as well as emotional highs and lows, alongside previously unseen archive material and rare performance footage from across their entire career.
