A new documentary focusing on the career of Mancunian post-punk legends Joy Division is to be released on DVD on October 31. ‘Joy Division: Under Review’ includes rare footage, brand new interviews and photographs.

The 70-minute DVD charts the band’s rapid rise from their origins as Warsaw to their position as arguably the most influential band of their generation.

‘Joy Division: Under Review’ features rare live footage of frontman Ian Curtis as well as interviews with co-author of ‘Torn Apart: The Life Of Ian Curtis’, Mick Middles, Manchester musician John Robb, and Uncut contributors David Stubbs and Barney Hoskyns.

Included in the extras are ‘The Hardest Joy Division Quiz in the World Ever’, contributor biographies, and a ‘Beyond DVD’ section.

The late Joy Division vocalist, who hanged himself in 1980, is also the subject of the feature film ‘Control’, which is currently under development in the UK, helmed by ex-NME photographer Anton Corbijn. It is expected to be released in 2007.
