This collection of 200 of the most influential music videos in Britain 1966 to 2016 is the result of a three-year University research project run in partnership with the British Film Institute and the British Library. The collection has been curated by Professor Caston on the basis of extensive archival research and interviews with directors, producers, cinematographers, editors, choreographers, colourists and video commissioners from the industry since 1966. Each video has been selected because it represents a landmark in music video history - a new genre, film technique, post-production method, distribution channel, or other landmark.

Along with the 6 discs comes a booklet explaining the history of British music videos since 1966 and rare production credits: using archives, callsheets, interviews and trade press listings the researchers have identified credits for directors, producers, executive producers, directors of photography, editors, colourists, production companies and choreographers as well as information about the source material on which the video was shot where available. In order to protect the artistic integrity of each, the videos are presented in their original native aspect aspect ratio. The videos for Manfred Mann’s ‘Mighty Quinn’ and Flowered Up’s ‘Weekender’ have been digitally re-mastered for this collection from the original film prints dating back to 1967 and 1992.
