Set against a background of early 60's London, Telstar is the story of the world's first independent record producer, Joe Meek. A maverick genius enjoyed phenomenal early success with Telstar - the biggest selling record of its time - before bad luck, depression, heartbreak and paranoia forced him into murder and sicide. He is already an iconic figure in the world of British pop. Far from being a maudlin tale, this stranger than fiction true story is a satirical drama revealing the many sides of Joe Meek, a man who is now revered as a pioneer in the field of popular music.
