The Haçienda, the legendary Manchester club opened by New Order and Factory Records, opened for 40 years ago this year. To celebrate the BBC has made a new documentary, The Haçienda – The Club That Shook Britain, looks at its 15-year run, from its beginnings, inspired by New Order’s first visit to NYC, through it becoming the epicenter of the rave scene in the late-’80s and early-’90s and it’s eventual demise.

There’s loads of rare footage from the club — including performances by New Order, The Smiths, Madonna and more — and new interviews with New Order’s Peter Hook and Stephen Morris, Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder, Noel Gallagher, Haçienda booker and DJ Mike Pickering and more.
