Boomtown Rats night on BBC4 - Sunday 6th October

To celebrate Bobby Boomtown's Sixty Second birthday, they are having a couple of broadcasts of great interest on BBC 4

First up at 9pm...

Mark Lawson talks to Sir Bob Geldof about his life and career. From the formation of the Boomtown Rats in the mid 1970s to his work with Band Aid and Live Aid in the 1980s and his continuing influence on key figures on the world stage, Geldof has been a key figure in music and politics over several decades. In 2013, the Boomtown Rats reunited for the first time in over 25 years and Geldof talks candidly to Mark about his career in music, his activism, his family and his very public personal traumas

But as good as that is, even better they are broadcasting the Rats from 1984 at 10pm!

Pete Drummond introduces a 1984 concert by the Boomtown Rats from Goldiggers in Chippenham.
