"Broadcast" concert filmed at the beautiful Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice showcases some of the greatest tracks from IQ, Pendragon, Pallas, Arena, Nolan/Wakeman and more, played and performed as you have never seen them before. This DVD is a must have for fans of these great bands, or as an introduction to them all. Superb musicianship and an awful lot of fun! As Clive Nolan comments, NEO's main aim was to "try and brake some new frontiers (…) and to represent these bands and so to get the people who haven't seen them to get an idea what they're about." The gig featured a guest appearance of two other eminent prog-rock figures: Pendragon's vocalist/guitarist Nick Barrett and Pallas' vocalist Alan Reed.

The DVD includes an interview with John Jowitt and Clive Nolan, as also bonus video footage from the band's soundcheck at ROSfest. Also available in a limited swing case edition, with a bonus CD with songs recorded at the concert!
