Video Beat was a popular syndicated music video show that aired on American television from 1984 to 1986. Created and produced by Richard Blade and Peter Facer, Video Beat uniquely captured the excitement and eccentricity of the 1980's British new wave invasion of the United States. Hosted by Richard Blade, Video Beat was very much a show about the moment. Many bands and artists of the day, both British and American were featured in an exciting and vibrant mix of interviews, world premiere music videos and live performances. Duran Duran, Culture Club, Adam Ant, Spandau Ballet, Depeche Mode, Wham!, Tears For Fears, Billy Idol, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Sting, Bon Jovi, RUN DMC and A-Ha all appeared on Video Beat through interviews and also as co-hosts.
