Channel 4 x Music Nation

Broadcasting the story of cult British music scenes to the nation

We teamed up with Channel 4 to conceptualise a radical new documentary series covering the cult scenes that defined British music.

Bolstered by our prolific network of documentary filmmakers, each half-hour film was broadcast on Channel 4 before being made available to watch on dazeddigital.com. 

Our series was warmly received and gained national acclaim, with Ewen Spencer’s Music Nation grime documentary 'Open Mic', featuring Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and Kano, also being nominated for a UK Music Video Award.
