In an exclusive interview in New York, Lou Reed talks of hte making of the album and together with Ken Scott, the original engineer, takes us through the multi-track tapes of "Perfect day", "Vicious", "Satelite of Love" and "Walk on the Wild Side", amongst others. In London, Herbie Flowers shows us how the bass line on "Walk on the Wild Side" was recorded, creating what is one of the most famous riffs in popular music.

The programme is illustrated throughout with archive footage of Lou Reed in concert., the Velvet Underground, Andy Warhol and the "Factory", and features exclusive new acoustic materila from Lou.
