"Complete Ian Curtis interview" (audio only, with subtitles, this is the Northern Lights
Castle Pub, Manchester 1979 interview)
"The stories behind the DVD's experts" - contributor biographies
"The hardest interactive JD quiz in the world ever".

The experts interviewed are Pat Gilbert, Barney Hoskyns, Mick Middles, Lindsay Reade, John Robb and David Stubbs. Voiceovers by one Tony Pomfret, and it was directed by Christian Davies.

The various Joy Division clips they've used are all very short, the quality is OK, but not better than the HATYM and Substance videos. There are also various short clips from the likes of the Sex Pistols, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Clash, Adolf Hitler, Von Ryan Express (war movie), The Doors, Margaret Thatcher, Can, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, The Ronettes(!), F. Sinatra, and finally New Order performing Blue Monday live on TOTP in 1983.
