As a tribute to founder member Florian Schneider, who has died, another chance to hear Jarvis Cocker present the story of Kraftwerk, one of popular music's most influential groups.

Jarvis also assesses the contribution of some of Kratwerk's contemporaries and tells the story of a group of musicians that have had a significant impact on acts and movements as diverse as David Bowie and Coldplay, hip hop and the new romantics. He also examines the part played in the so-called "Krautrock" movement by the other German bands such as Neu! and Tangerine Dream.
