We're proud to have produced our first piece of work for the BBC this month. Gilles Peterson presents The History of Bristol's Musical Underground, a three hour radio documentary broadcasting on January 23rd of January 2016 on BBC Radio 6Music, and available on-demand for 30 days via the BBC Radio iPlayer.
Mistral Productions and Gilles Peterson went to Bristol in early January, interviewing many of the key figures who have shaped, documented and witnessed the city's musical development over the last 30 years.
During the broadcast, the show was trending on Twitter across Bristol. Post-broadcast, the show has been featured by many publications and websites including Fact Magazine, Jocks & Nerds, Red Bull Music Academy, DJ Mag, The Vinyl Factory, British Council Music and On U Sounds to name a few. The show was in the top 10 most-listened-to shows on iPlayer Radio, across all BBC networks.
A blog post by Gilles Peterson has now been published on The Guardian Online, touching on themes discussed on the show, with Huck Magazine also writing a piece based on the show, featuring an extended interview edit from Jabulani of Black Roots.
