Genesis ' early-1970s lineup has reunited for the first time in nearly 40 years, but it's apparently not for a new musical project. According to a message posted Monday on Genesis' official Facebook page , singer Peter Gabriel , drummer/singer Phil Collins , keyboardist Tony Banks , bassist Mike Rutherford and guitarist Steve Hackett have gotten together to take part in a feature-length TV documentary for the BBC called Genesis: Together and Apart .
A new photo of the quintet also has been posted on Genesis' Facebook page, as well as on the BBC Press Office's Twitter account.
The five musicians have been working together for the last few months on the film, which will follow the band's story from its inception during the 1960s, through its years as an eclectic prog-rock act led by Gabriel and its major commercial success as a trio fronted by Collins.
The movie will feature previously unseen archival footage, as well as rare performances spanning the group's entire history. The project is being made with the band's full cooperation and marks the first time all five main Genesis members have worked together since 1975.
No word yet on when Genesis: Together and Apart will premiere.
