Gibb is also keen for the music to survive – to stay alive, as it were. Hence this documentary.

While they were major pop stars and the figurehead for a maligned genre, The Bee Gees at their core were a song writer family.

The catalogue of compositions is weighty and deserved to live long in our ears.
