In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Duran Duran’s formation, the U.K.’s BBC Four will devote a night of programming to the British band with a pair of documentaries. Duran Duran: A Night In traces the TV and movies that inspired the group. Its companion film, Duran Duran: There’s Something You Should Know, will take a deep dive into the band’s history and unearths previously unseen archive footage and rare demos. Boys on Film — A Night With Duran Duran special features interviews with models Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, producers Nile Rodgers and Mark Ronson, and the members of the classic lineup, including Andy Taylor, who left the band for a second time in 2006. Duran Duran will be “heading back into the studio to work on a new record”, according to their manager Wendy Laister. Their 14th studio album, Paper Gods, peaked at No. 5 in the U.K. and No. 10 in the U.S. following its release in 2015.
