The Word was a UK television programme that was broadcast on Channel 4 between 1990 and 1995. It was a magazine type format programme that included music, interviews and lifestyle features. Whilst the programme did have a high success rate with audiences particularly the younger audience moving into the 18-25 age bracket the show also attracted controversy. There were however many memorable moments contained within the programme in a musical sense and the show is credited with giving Nirvana their first international television exposure performing Smells Like Teen Spirit and also the first television exposure of Oasis performing Supersonic. There were many hosts of the programme but the anchor was journalist and broadcaster Terry Christian who stayed with the programme for its entire run. This DVD is part of a three DVD set of releases that contain some of the highlights from the five series which were broadcast between August 1990 and March 1995. The content actually stands up to scrutiny and as such it is easy to see why The Word become compelling viewing In Volume Three we have the Debut TV appearance by Mary J Blige, and early TV interview with John Lydon, an interview with 16 year old Leonardo DiCaprio and an interview with Norman Cook. Musical highlights come from Blur performing Girls and Boys, 808 state performing Olympic and Duran Duran with Hungry Like The Wolf. The individual DVDs also feature extensive notes by The Word presenter Terry Christian. This is the first time that these performances have been released commercially and as The Word commanded a large cult audience over its five year run there is a large and dedicated audience now waiting to buy these DVDs.
