| Filed under: TV News

In 1985, Irish rocker Bob Geldof and promoter Harvey Goldsmith set out to raise money to feed the hungry in Ethiopia. Now their journey in creating the international charity concert, Live Aid is becoming a TV movie.

The film, When Harvey met Bob, has begun filming in Dublin.

Producer Kate Triggs said:

"We were inspired by this story because it has, at its heart, a fantastic relationship that is funny, moving and born out of the real drama of trying to achieve something huge and unprecedented. It's a film about two men who are prepared to think the unthinkable and achieve the seemingly impossible."

Inneresting.

    Midge Ure has never been given the credit that he deserves.

    Since HOW many years people have been helping Africa and still the same thing. WHEN are they going to solve the REAL problem?.



  3. 3

    None of the money raised ever made it to the people, it was all confiscated at the border by their corrupt government. Will that fact make it in the movie?



  4. 4

    I thought that was what "One Night in London" was about. Ooops, that would be "One big fat, ugly, homo pig with Live Aids." Silly me.

    The money raised didn't achieve its aim at all. High ideals didn't foresee the reality of that place. I can only hope that subsequent efforts are smarter, but looking at Haiti, they aren't.

    feel the hungry? Really?! Nice.

    Hopefully the proceeds from this will go to fight hunger, as well… But, worldwide… There are people starving all over the world… (Not saying that the people in Ethiopia DON'T need the assistance, but why not divide it up??)

    Wow. Cool idea.
