[edit] Information

Documentary about the musician and composer Mike Oldfield. Part 1. In 1973 aged just 19, a young and painfully shy man released an album - Tubular Bells - that against all odds went to the top of the UK charts, launched the Virgin record label, formed the soundtrack to the movie The Exorcist and became the biggest selling instrumental album of all time. The film features contributions from Sir Richard Branson, Danny Boyle, Mike's family and the album's engineers, plus an extended interview with Mike himself, where he takes us through the events that led to him writing Tubular Bells - growing up with a mother with mental health problems, the refuge he sought in music as a child and his frightening experience of taking LSD at 16. After the album's huge success, Mike shunned public life and became a recluse until he took part in a controversial therapy which changed his life. Filmed on location at his home recording studio in Nassau, Mike also shows how Tubular Bells was put together. Part 2. A live studio performance from 1974 of Mike Oldfield's composition Tubular Bells, which had been acclaimed in the press as a unique achievement in popular music.
