Having started in April 2007 with BUG 01, our regular round-up of global music video creativity has now reached its 50th episode. To celebrate our landmark, it was pretty much business as usual: there’s wonderful filmmaking put to the service of great music, from directors both familiar to the regular BUG audience, and also complete unknowns all hosted by Adam Buxton.
We also welcomed very special guest, in fact one of the people who helped to create the music as we know it. It's Steve Barron, who directed a stream of classic videos in the 1980's for The Human League, Michael Jackson, Dire Strights, A-Ha and many others. Adam took us through some and ta;led with Steve in an expanded director interview section halfway through the evening.
