The BEE GEES
IN OUR OWN TIME
~An Incredible New Documentary On DVD and Blu-ray November 16~
~The Story Behind Their Legacy, Told In Their Own Words~
New York, NY (October 25, 2010)—Commemorating a sterling 50-year career of beloved music, Eagle Rock Entertainment will proudly release In Our Own Time, a revealing look at the history of The Bee Gees. This film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 16. [Prebook Order Date October 22, MSRP $14.98 for DVD, $19.98 for Blu-ray]
On In Our Own Time, brand new interviews with Barry and Robin Gibb, as well as Maurice Gibb shortly before his 2003 passing, tell the compelling tale of their family business. With a half-century of memories, and the amazing video clips to go with it, the Gibb brothers go through it all, and no stone is left unturned. Interweaved with live performances, TV and film clips, and early, rare videos of the band, this 116-minute documentary lavishly illustrates The Bee Gees experience.
The Bee Gees remarkable candor on the disparity between their incredible successes and their heartbreaking lows make In Our Own Time essential and dramatic viewing even if one is only a casual fan. Robin, Barry, and Maurice Gibb offer revealing and personal commentary on each step of the journey: their burgeoning childhood stardom in their native Australia, their first flush of success in London, the break-up and inevitable reunion, the phantasmagoria of fame ricocheting from Saturday Night Fever, and their work as songwriters, penning tunes not only for themselves, but Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers, and Dolly Parton. It is, in essence, the history of pop music itself spanning the ‘60s, ‘70s and beyond. The DVD ends on a note of hope: Barry and Robin singing anew those classic songs again for the camera, leaving the door open to more Bee Gees chapters.
Most profound is the way the life and death of Andy Gibb is treated. We learn he desperately wanted to be a Bee Gee and his brothers wanted him in...but life has a cruel streak. This chapter gives the DVD its gravitas. Barry and Robin have never really explored this with any degree of finality. Until now.
In addition to this DVD, In Our Own Time will air on A&E on November 20. The Bee Gees will also celebrate this milestone with the release of Mythology, a four-disc boxed set released November 16 via Rhino Entertainment.
