Saturday, 15 December 2012, 9:00PM – 10:20PM

Girls Aloud: Ten Years At The Top

Over the past ten years Girls Aloud have grown from young pop wannabes, to become five remarkable women. This intimate portrait of their lives and music will remind us why they won Popstars – The Rivals all those years ago, and why they remain today Britain’s favourite girl-band.

The show will feature three distinct chapters – the definitive history of the band, the individual successes of each girls solo projects, and their reunion. We’ll offer exclusive access to all the preparations that lead up to their launch and come-back, culminating in a headline performance in front of the Queen at this years Royal Variety Performance.

The Definitive History

Past documentaries have told the story of the band, but none have given us the definitive history of Girls Aloud, from their creation on Popstars the Rivals up until 2009. Featuring honest and frank interviews with the girls, and a wealth of previously unseen archive, we’ll tell the full story of the music, the achievements, their life in the spotlight, and all that goes into being the phenomenon that is Girls Aloud.

Solo Projects

The second chapter examines the girls’ solo projects, from Cheryl’s recent UK tour, to Kimberley’s own musical projects, Sarah’s film work to Nicola’s passion for fashion, and we hook up with Nadine in LA for an exclusive glimpse of her Sunset beach bar and restaurant.

Back together again.

We catch up with the girls a month before they go public with the announcement of their re-union. Behind the scenes, the preparation for this moment is frantic. We follow the girls as they film the video for come back single Something New, get together for photo shoots (and realise that nothing has changed in 10 years – they are still the chatterboxes they always were…!), nervously face the press to announce their come back, and prepare to perform for Her Majesty at this years Royal Variety Performance.
