‘Daft Punk Unchained’ to air on BBC4 later this month

The robots are coming! Eagerly awaited doc to be shown in the UK on February 19

Daft Punk Unchained is set to get its premiere in the UK later this month.

Following a screening in London last September, the documentary will air at 10pm on BBC4 next Friday (February 19).

The film documents key moments in Daft Punk‘s career, from starting out in Paris to their now infamous performance at Coachella in 2006 and of course, their Grammys win for ‘Random Access Memories’ back in 2014.

It was originally announced in June 2014 that Daft Punk would be the subject of a new TV documentary, produced by BBC Worldwide France. The film was first premiered on French TV station Canal+ in June.

Directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre and co-written with Marina Rozenman, it also features guest appearances from Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards, Pete Tong and more.

A press release states: “Daft Punk Unchained is the first film about the pop culture phenomenon that is Daft Punk… This documentary explores this unprecedented cultural revolution revealing a duo of artists on a permanent quest for creativity, independence and freedom.


“Between fiction and reality, magic and secret, future and reinvention, theatricality and humility, The Robots have built a unique world. The film combines rare archive footage as well as exclusive interviews with their closest collaborators.”

The duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, released their most recent album ‘Random Access Memories’ in 2013.
