Ground-breaking, uncompromising and armed with his sound boom and his trusty Nagra tape recorder, Nick Broomfield has been making documentary films for over 30 years - all with a common purpose; the relentless pursuit of truth.
This DVD boxset pulls together 16 of his most famous and renowned films, from his early short film Proud To Be British (1973), through his early years and his first big breakthrough with the self-reflective Driving Me Crazy in 1988.
The explosion of popular culture in the mid-late 90s led to his most popular films, with expose looks at the likes of LA-based Madam Heidi Fleiss (1995), two of the decade's most enduring music icons in Kurt & Courtney (1998) and an investigation into the still unsolved murders of two of the biggest superstars of rap in Biggie And Tupac (2002).
Along the way, Nick Broomfield chases after former British Prime Minister Mrs Thatcher in Tracking Down Maggie (1994), visits a famous S&M parlour in New York in Fetishes (1996), trains with young female US Army recruits in Soldier Girls (1981) interviews America's female serial killer Aileen Wuornos (twice!), and finally embarks on a quest to find the real person behind the persona in his latest film, Sarah Palin: You Betcha! (2011).
Multi-award winning, and a true forerunner to the likes of Michael Moore, Louis Theroux and Werner Herzog, Nick Broomfield remains a genuine British filmmaking legend.
