Hi.
A bit random, but here's hoping someone can help/enlighten me.
Around the time of the original Joshua Tree album/tour. I remember watching a programme/mini documentary on UK TV. It showed the band in the desert, playing little shacks & bars. It included a scene with Bono, walking along a deserted road (maybe cross a railway track) to the track 'Spanish Eyes'. I think it also MAY have included the whole setting up & eventual closing down, of the roof top 'Where The Streets Have No Name' video.
With the new tour, & all things Joshua Tree, being current trends, & hot topics, I'd love to see it again if anyone has any info, names, videos, & links.
Thanks

In the UK it originally aired on BBC2 late at night as part of the 'Old Grey Whistle Test' programme with 'wispering' Bob Harris I think
fact is fiction and TV reality

I have a rubbish copy on VHS somewhere. The original broadcast one.

 

 

Notable for two music videos, 'Spanish Eyes' and 'In God's Country'.

I remember that, really good documentary. I also remember 'world in action' following the Joshua tree tour in Dublin, think it was on ITV.
