Recordings are available to view on campus only.


The journey through the history of rock music continues with the story of the contrasting fates of two of America\'s biggest, most authentic bands: R.E.M. and Nirvana. Nirvana had their roots in the underground and college music scene pioneered by bands like R.E.M. and the Pixies and this programme tells how R.E.M. also ended up gravitating towards Seattle and how a friendship developed between Michael Stipe and Kurt Cobain.
