The Recording Studio Comes to BBC One
Each episode will explore singers’ personal reasons for wanting to record their particular song and demonstrate the truly transformative power of music. Artist and producer Naughty Boy, Sister Bliss from Faithless and acclaimed producer Andrew Hunt, make up the highly skilled team of music producers who, together with a team of voice coaches, will mentor the contributors to create their special recording.
David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment, says: “We’re really excited to be bringing this heartfelt, emotional and entertaining new series to BBC One. It’s such a treat to hear the stories of those who pass through the recording studio and impossible not to feel uplifted after watching their once-in-a-lifetime performances.”
Catherine Catton, Commissioning Editor, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment, says: “Boundless delivered a great pilot and I’m delighted to now be working with them on a two-part series for BBC One. Across the episodes we meet a host of people from up and down the UK and share the joyful and emotional impact music has in their lives. This is a heart-felt series that celebrates musical performance without judgement.”
Ben Mitchell, Director of Programmes, Boundless added: “It’s exciting to be making a music programme that isn’t about being discovered or finding fame. The Recording Studio gives ordinary people the opportunity to harness the power of music for a very special reason; whether a celebration, a message to a loved one or to help them overcome an obstacle. The results are emotional, uplifting and inspirational.”
