Popstars was a key forerunner of the late 1990s reality television explosion. The series followed the creation and development of an all-girl pop band called TrueBliss (Carly Binding, Keri Harper, Joe Cotton, Megan Alatini and Erika Takacs), who went on to record several NZ chart-topping singles and a platinum-selling album. Also a hit was the series format, which sold globally and helped inspire Pop Idol/American Idol, the franchise that would dominate reality TV for years to come. These excerpts are from each episode of the series, from the second to the final.

Only five months ago, or four months ago, they came together as five fresh-faced young girls and that first day they looked at me, with their big eyes looking up and they said: ‘OK Peter, turn us into pop stars!’
– Popstar impresario Peter Urlich
