BBC to celebrate Live Aid

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

When Live Aid happened in 1985, it was one of those events where people tend to remember where they were and what they were doing.

However, the event, although a huge success, had many issues behind the scenes.

As part of the BBC’s plans to celebrate the event, as well as the technology and hard work that made the two Live Aid events in London and Philadelphia possible, a film charting the relationship between organiser Bob Geldof and music promoter Harvey Goldsmith has been made.

The event meant staging two concerts, the first in London followed by a second in Philadelphia.

The entire sixteen hour event was shown live on the BBC.

It was supposed to have raised around a £1 million, but actually finished up with £150 million.
