Total runtime 90min

Going on air in 1990, The Word both revolutionised youth TV and pre-dated reality TV by many years. Deliberately aiming to achieve something new and exciting, the show pushed the boundaries of broadcasting to court controversy and outrage the Establishment. It combined a unique mix of cutting-edge bands, irreverent and anarchic interviews of A-listers, stories from the margins of society, and downright bizarre and outrageous studio stunts, and soon became loved by its target audience and loathed by the press in equal measure. In this special discussion, chaired by Samira Ahmed, with plenty of amazing clips, hear from the show’s main presenters and celebrate this iconic and quintessentially 90s TV show.
