Now That’s What I Call a Documentary About a Popular Music Compilation

March 22, 2013 | Andy Cush

British television network ITV recently commissioned a documentary about Now That’s What I Call Music, the second-most iconic popular music compilation of all time (behind only Pure Moods, of course). Produced by Reef Television, the house behind such masterpieces as The Grape Escape, Sarah Beeny’s Selling Houses, and Britain’s First Photo Album Presented by John Seargant, the film will presumably tell the hidden history behind the best-selling series. For instance, did you know that Now started in the UK in 1983 (they’re on volume 83 there, compared to 45 here in the states), and the second country after Ireland to which it was exported was South Africa? Crazy!
