More information

With the announcement of her first concerts in 35 years commencing at Hammersmith Apollo on August 26th through to October 1st, everyone has been talking about what Sir Elton John calls the 'beautiful mystery' that is Kate Bush. This documentary explores Bush's career and music from January 1978's Wuthering Heights to her 2011 album 50 Words for Snow through the testimony of some of her key collaborators and those she has inspired.

Contributors include the guitarist who discovered her (Pink Floyd's David Gilmour), the choreographer who taught her to dance (Lindsay Kemp) and the musician who she said 'opened her doors' (Peter Gabriel), as well as her engineer and ex-partner (Del Palmer) and several other collaborators (Elton John, Stephen Fry and Nigel Kennedy).

Also exploring their abiding fascination with Kate are some of the musicians who have been influenced by her (St Vincent's Annie Clark, Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes, Tori Amos, Outkast's Big Boi, Guy Garvey and Tricky) and some writers and comedians who admire her (Jo Brand, Steve Coogan and Neil Gaiman).
