Following the success of documentary, Bros: After The Screaming Stops, 1980’s pop icons Matt and Luke Goss have been invited to return to BBC Four in July to curate an entire evening of programming inspired by their childhood, their musical influences and long careers in and out of the spotlight.
“As we prepare for our Irish and UK shows, we wanted to come together to create a whole evening of entertainment with friends and special guests. We wanted to show some of the music, film and TV that we grew up watching and create moments of nostalgia. Our documentary After The Screaming Stops has been supported from day one by BBC Four and they have been a joy to work with, so it was an honour being asked to create an entire night of entertainment. This night on BBC Four is a way of saying a big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way.” – Luke Goss
A Night In With Bros follows previous curated nights on BBC Four – Keith Richards’ Lost Weekend and Boys On Film: A Night With Duran Duran. Matt and Luke will be revealing the shows and artists that inspired them growing up, introducing nostalgic clips and programmes from the BBC archive as well as interviewing specially invited guests in the studio.
There will also be brand new footage filmed with the brothers in the aftermath of their rise back to the top, as they continue their efforts to rebuild their friendship and fractured relationship.
“Throughout our long careers, we have been inspired by so many musical influences, and we’re so excited to take a walk down memory lane and share some of our most favourite moments that have led us to this point. There are going to be quite a few surprises and we can’t wait to share this special evening on BBC Four with our fans.” – Matt Goss
This new material will feature exclusive studio content and a first behind-the-scenes look at their preparations for their imminent shows in London, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.
The evening will air on BBC Four in July from 9pm until late during which there will be another chance to see Bros: After The Screaming Stops, the Bafta-winning and Edinburgh TV Award nominated film that premiered on BBC Four in December 2018 and was broadcast again on BBC Two in January.
The evening follows the BBC Four documentary, Bros: After The Screaming Stops, originally produced by Fulwell 73, which charted twins Matt and Luke Goss’s reunion 28 years on, having hardly spoken and not played together since their split. The film has gone on to win a Bafta TV Craft Award for Editing and received further nominations for Directing and a Bafta TV nomination for Best Documentary Following its broadcast on BBC Four in December it has had the largest number of BBC iPlayer requests for a music programme broadcast in 2018. – BBC
