The 1980s were the dawning of the age of MTV, a time when the music world was heavily influenced by TV visuals. Decades later, the era is still fondly recalled by nostalgia-drunk fans. IFC taps into that popularity by revising "Night Flight." The cult late-night series originally aired from 1981 to 1989, becoming one of the first outlets for Americans to see music documentaries, and music videos presented as a serious art form. The revised version is crisply edited -- 15-minute showcases of the most memorable rock star interviews, performances, animation and videos from the original series.
