o The stunning 1995 return from a 6-year touring hiatus for the Monster Tour at The National Bowl at Milton Keynes is followed by a blistering headline performance at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 1999 and finally 2004’s intimate performance for 200 BBC-invited guests at London’s St. James’s Church.

o R.E.M.’s history with the BBC is documented by Peter Buck, Mike Mills andMichael Stipe in their interview segments on the Accelerating Backwards film, but is further illustrated via fascinating accounts from contemporaneous BBC personalities who were also there and contributed their own memories of those performances and moments with the band with a newly written overview of the BBC/R.E.M. relationship by rock journalist Tom Doyle.
