bobgeldof200.jpgLONDON, UK (X17online) - The global Live Aid concert, that was created to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia, will be made into a TV movie.

Live Aid was created back in 1985 by Irish rocker Bob Geldof. The concert reached an estimated 1.5 billion viewers who were made aware of the starvation, poverty and disease in Africa.

The 90-minute drama called When Harvey Met Bob has reportedly begun filming in Dublin. As for the plot line, the script will focus on Geldof arriving home to find his girlfriend sobbing after watching footage of feeding camps in Eritrea. He eventually gets top recording artists to record the song Do they know it's Christmas?.

According to the movie's producers, "We were inspired by this story because it has, at its heart, a fantastic relationship that is funny, moving and born out of the real drama of trying to achieve something huge and unprecedented."
