Summary

Documentary revealing what made Motown special in Britain through the lens of two decisive moments in 1965 – the Motown Revue UK tour and the Sounds of Motown Ready Steady Go! TV special. Arriving in London in March 1965, the Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder were bussed across Britain on a tough but crucial tour. The TV special, recorded after the tour, kicked open the door thrusting Motown\'s slick routines and magical music into front rooms everywhere.
