Comedian Sindhu Vee on Prince

Comedian Sindhu Vee on the pop polymath and global superstar, Prince Rogers Nelson. Who is this person of extreme contradictions and multiple personas?

The comedian Sindhu Vee has loved Prince ever since she was a young girl in India - when her sister gave her illicit cassettes recorded from U.S. radio. Hearing his music changed her life forever, and seeing him perform influenced her career as a comedian.

Sindhu is joined by BAFTA-winning investigative journalist Mobeen Azhar (who's seen Prince live 54 times) and presenter Matthew Parris, to discuss the life of Prince Rogers Nelson - a pop polymath and global superstar, who was also a man of extreme contradictions and multiple personas.

Produced by Eliza Lomas in Bristol.
