A Prince stan’s dream come true, BBC4 aired the documentary “A Purple Reign”, chronicling the life and times one pop superstar and downright funk genius Prince Rogers Nelson. From his startling debut on American Bandstand to helping shape the sounds of pop music (and freaks alike) for three decades, the documentary is engrossing and an absolute delight for anyone who has ranked The Purple One atop their list of greatest musicians ever. To think, the man who hates the Internet can thank it for spreading a doc that could have only been seen on television across the pond. Take an hour out of your day & click play.
