Simple Minds: Once Upon a Time (w/t) (1 x 75’, Lonesome Pine Productions)
Over three years in the making, Simple Minds: Once Upon a Time (w/t) presents the untold story of one of Scotland’s biggest musical exports. For the first time ever, Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill tell their own story: the highs and lows of a forty-year career and a fifty-year friendship. How did two young kids from Glasgow deal with global adoration, success, and riches, and how does any creative relationship survive that pressure? Featuring unseen archive footage and with unique access to both Jim and Charlie, the film will reveal previously unheard tales as told by the band members themselves and their peers, spanning over forty years of global hits and worldwide tours.
Simple Minds: Once Upon a Time is made by Lonesome Pine Productions for Paramount+ and financed by BMG. It was commissioned by Greg Barnett, commissioning editor, Factual Entertainment, Channel 5 & Paramount+.
