‘I Was There When...’
[2016]



'I Was There When...' is a doc-series that delves into critical moments of music culture, that changed the course of history. Commissioned on behalf of Channel4, who asked us to develop a music-focussed documentary series for their new online platform: All4.

The launch episode - I Was There When House Took Over The World - explores how an event that occured in Chicago in 1979 forced black music underground, where it would morph and progress into what we now know as house music.

I worked as a researcher on the project, and loved it.
