Episode 3 of 6
Charles Hazlewood takes a personal journey around Britain, uncovering the music that has shaped who we are today.
The influence of music from other places has been integral to the history of British music and in this third episode we examine its impact. Reggae producer Dennis Bovell tells Charles about the beginnings of lover's rock and the importance of a distinctly British reggae sound.
We hear from Tricky, who's now living in Paris, about his seminal album Maxinquaye and his thoughts on the formation of a black British identity in music.
And A Guy Called Gerald, the creator of one of the most important tracks in British dance music history, explains how music has been torn free from its location. But what does the music reveal about the people that play it? How has it shaped Britain?
