Great!
11 November 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

What a great show! The Motown 40th Anniversary celebration was showed in two parts. The special was wonderfully put together with archive footage and commentary from singers, producers, songwriters, etc. It takes you from Motown's sparse beginnings, and shows how the stars started out. If you're a Motown fan, or just a music fan in general, you'll really enjoy this miniseries!
