Thomas Dolby's hit songs 'She Blinded Me with Science' and 'Hyperactive!' catapulted him to international fame in the early '80s. A pioneer of new wave and electronica, Thomas combined a love for invention with a passion for music, and the result was a new sound that defined an era of revolutionary music. But as record company politics overshadowed the joy of performing, Thomas found a surprising second act.

Part 1: Exactly what I was expecting, TMDR’s career as a musician. My advice is to have your music app fired up and play the song as he mentions it, it adds so much colour and richness to the experience.

Part 2: Lots of stuff I didn’t know about TMDR, a fascinating story, loved every minute of it.
