If you like Kraftwerk, or if you like music – or even if you are just interested in creative things in general – you'll love this. Over the weekend, a documentary called Kraftwerk: Pop Art was shown on BBC Four, the BBC's channel dedicated to all things cerebral, and often music-based.

It takes a look at the pioneering electro group, how they began, the significance of their music, how they influenced the music world itself, and their continued trailblazing with sound.

On BBC iPlayer, where you can watch the documentary in its entirety, they profiled the hour-long celebration of Kraftwerk:

"Documentary telling the amazing story of how a group of reclusive Rhineland experimentalists called Kraftwerk became one of the most influential pop groups of all time. It is a celebration of the band featuring exclusive live tracks filmed at their Tate Modern shows in London in February 2013, interwoven with expert analysis, archive footage of the group going back to 1970, newsreel of the era and newly shot cinematic evocations of their obsessions. With contributions from techno pioneer Derrick May, Can founder Holger Czukay, DJ and remixer Francois Kevorkian, graphic design guru Neville Brody, writer Paul Morley, band photographer Peter Boettcher, Tate Modern curator Caroline Wood and others."

• Towards the end of January, Aston University held the world's first international academic conference on Kraftwerk.
