Giorgio Moroder shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2014.

Pioneer of electronic music and regarded by many as the Godfather of Disco, Giorgio Moroder is a charming and effortlessly cool producer and songwriter. He talks us through his career, from his earliest bubblegum electropop recordings in the late 60s to the creation of his own studio, Musicland, where he created a remarkable run of records through the 1970s.

Giorgio talks about partnership Donna Summer - an artistic relationship which resulted in Love to Love You Baby and, probably the greatest dance record of all time, I Feel Love. He also guides us through the recording of his iconic film scores such as Midnight Express and Cat People. He worked with David Bowie on the latter.

With typical humour, Giorgio also explains how his career wavered on the 90s (as he busied himself designing sports cars and creating whiskeys) and explains how he came to work with Daft Punk on their world conquering album Random Access Memories, what it was like starting DJing again at 74 and his plans for the future.
