The national press dubbed them ‘The Black Beatles’, four working class boys from one of Liverpool’s toughest neighbourhoods who became Britain’s most enduring black soul and funk act ever. With a string of hits, they dominated the international charts throughout the 1970s with iconic songs like You to Me Are Everything, Can’t Get By Without You and Can You Feel the Force. But The Real Thing’s meteoric success was also tempered with personal tragedy, drug addiction and racial prejudice. Simon Sheridan’s widely acclaimed documentary tells the incredible true story of Britain’s first black music revolution, and features illuminating interviews with the band, plus Billy Ocean, Kim Wilde, David Essex, Trevor Nelson, Paul Barber, Denise Pearson and Louis Emerick. Narrated by Jacob Anderson (from TV’s Game of Thrones).
