"It's like the Big Brother house, innit, just with tunes"

Whatever you think of some of the albums cut at Rockfield (personally I can't stand the Stone Roses or Coldplay and have very little time for the Charlatans, Tim Burgess aside), you can't deny that the studio has an extremely impressive history as a magnet for many of the biggest-selling British acts of the last few decades - all the more extraordinary given that it consists of converted farm buildings in rural Wales.

Hannah Berryman's documentary film, recently aired on BBC Two, did a solid job of telling Rockfield's remarkable story - with the help of a number of high-profile interviewees including Ozzy Osbourne, Robert Plant and Liam Gallagher.
