Using hundreds of hours of archive footage and revealing interviews, the three part Spice Girls: How Girl Power Changed the World tells the complete story of the best-selling girl band of all time.

Starting from the group’s formation in the mid ‘90s amidst the backdrop of ‘ladette culture’, right through to the recent world tour during the time of the #metoo movement, this series examines how modern feminism has evolved through the life story and events that have surrounded the five members of the group.

Alisa Pomeroy, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor Documentaries said: “The idea of using the story of the supremely popular and mould-breaking Spice Girls to make a multi-layered social history series was too good to pass up. The Spice Girls mirrored and influenced a generation of women and now, nearly 30 years since their formation, their story sheds light on the coming of age of modern feminism in ways we can fully appreciate for the first time.”

Clare Cameron, Series Editor 72 Films said: “Little did I know when I saw them perform live in Sheffield as a teenager, that I’d have the opportunity to make a series about one of the most iconic pop groups of our time and their impact on young women all over the world. Following the incredible stories of the band members is an exciting way of exploring the changing story of feminism over the last 25 years.”

Airdate: Parts 1 and 2 air Monday 6 December 2021 from 9.10pm and Part 3 airs Tuesday 7 December 2021 at 10.10pm on Channel 9.
