Nile Rodgers looks at Giorgio Moroder, the legend many say invented dance music. This programme looks at Giorgio's work in film and how he conquered Hollywood. There's tales of Oscar success with 'Midnight Express', 'Flashdance' and 'Top Gun'. There's contributions from a host of big names- Debbie Harry from Blondie talks about the song she wrote with Giorgio for 'American Gigolo', 'Call Me '. Irene Cara recalls co-writing the 'Flashdance' signature tune, 'What a Feeling'. Limahl talks about his involvement in 'the Neverending Story' and Giorgio himself talks about recording 'Electric Dreams' with Phil Oakey.
There's also an insight into the stable Moroder built which also produced Harold Faltemeyer (Axel F/ Beverley Hills Cop) and Keith Forsey (Don't You Forget About Me/ The Breakfast Club).

Worth tuning in alone for Terri Nunn from Berlin talking about their inter-band squabbles over recording 'Take My Breath Away'!
