Everything: The Real Thing Story

Season 14 Episode 1401 | 56m 22s | Video has closed captioning.

Against a backdrop of prejudice and political turmoil in the 1970s, The Real Thing was the first all-black British band to hit #1 in the UK pop charts. Dubbed "the Black Beatles" by the British tabloids, their incredible story takes them from the tough streets of Toxteth, an inner-city area of Liverpool, to the bright lights of New York as Britain's pioneering million-selling soul and funk band.
