Re-edited video which was torrented at HungerCity in April, 2008. I cleaned up eight seconds of cable drop outs - eleminating black screen, and removed the standalone recorder 5 minute chapter
points. At the time of the first upload, one staff member at HC called this "The Holy Grail" of Dire Straits video.
"This aired on MTV in 1986. It is an excellent documentary about Dire Straits at the height of their popularity - following them during rehearsals, press conferences and just
relaxing. The interviews are done amidst beautiful and exotic settings."
