BBC Four will air a documentary about the reunion of 80s band Culture Club.

The hour-long show will give viewers an "access-all-areas" account of the band's return to the limelight. It will follow the band from their initial recording sessions all the way to their live shows.

Considering the band's past, it should make interesting viewing. Lead singer Boy George had an affair with drummer Jon Moss. They split acrimoniously and the band fell apart. So there might be some fireworks.

"Culture Club are one of those iconic bands who everyone wants to know more about," Greg Sanderson, BBC commissioning editor, arts, music & events, said in a statement. "Getting access to the trials and triumphs of their reunion was always going to be exciting, and we're delighted to be taking audiences behind the scenes of this extraordinary foursome."

'Boy George and Culture Club: Karma to Calamity' is produced by Mentorn Media and directed by Mike Nicholls.

"Culture Club is a band with a history as colourful as their music," added Tate Simpson, Mentorn's director of programmes and executive producer. "Mike has unique and intimate access which provides a candid insight as these four strong personalities attempt to work together for the first time in 15 years."

It will air at 9pm on March 6th on BBC Four.
