About the DVD[]

The DVD is a collection of Duran Duran media appearances, news reports and music videos compiled from TV broadcasts between 1986 and 1987. The compilation includes The Return of Notorious, a documentary aired by MTV in November 1986 which is also available on the unofficial Return of Notorious DVD with other recordings.

Also included is an interview on The Meldrum Tapes, a series of 24 shows made by ABC in Australia with Molly Meldrum which were later broadcast by MTV. During the interview, the band talked about their latest album Notorious, adding that the writing was a lot easier this time. Nick commented that because Seven and the Ragged Tiger was so long in the making, they needed to remix "The Reflex" using Nile Rodgers.
