No info but it was on the BBC Three a while ago I think. The tour had problems because it was a first attempt. Ended well though I think. Some Soul followers should have no problem picking them out.

BBC4's The Motown Invasion was first aired in February. See:

It was repeated three or four weeks ago and I watched it avidly from start to finish.

The tour was unfortunately not a big success until a decision was taken by the BBC to feature the Motown artistes on a special TV show.

The fact that it was hosted by Dusty Springfield was the key factor and within a year many of the Motown artistes rightly became big stars in the UK.

I see from peter99co's link that the repeat I saw was probably on BBC 2 and a little further back than I thought.

But the basic facts remain the same...:-)
