Sky Art’s comedy drama series this week looks at what “happened” during the world’s biggest concert.

Jonas Armstrong stars as Bob Geldof as he and his PA Marsha Hunt (Kerry Howard) tried to deal with the chaos and egos that battled backstage in 1985. Among those figures in the thick of it all included Midge Ure (Martin Compston), Status Quo (Seb Cardinal and Dustin Demri Burns as Ric Parfitt and Francis Rossi), Elton John (Rufus Jones) and Freddie Mercury (David Avery).

Urban Myths is on Sky Arts at 21.00.
