How The Brits Rocked America: Go West is a three-part music documentary series celebrating the 50-year narrative of British music in America.
This series tells the story of the inter-continental exchange of musical ideas, of how the two nations have, and continue to, influence each other's unique sound. It features choice archive footage from The Beatles’ iconic arrival in the US, through Cream, The Who and Led Zeppelin live on the road, and to the Sex Pistols’ last US gig in San Francisco and Elvis Costello and the Attractions’ career-boosting appearance on Saturday Night Live.
It also includes first-hand testimonies from artists across the decades talking about their experiences, from the pilgrim fathers of British rock, including Sir Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page and Jack Bruce, to the latter-day contenders to their throne, the likes of John Lydon, Robert Smith, Simon Le Bon and Adam Ant, who recall how they coped with the challenge of cracking the behemoth that is the US.
