Once Upon A Time In New York: The Birth of Hip Hop, Disco and Punk

Broadcast on Monday 5th March 2007 9-10pm on BBC4

How the squalid streets of ’70s New York gave birth to music that would go on to conquer the world – punk, disco and hip hop.
In the 1970s the Big Apple was rotten to the core, yet out of the grime, grit and low rent space emerged new music unlike anything that had gone before.

Narrated by Richard O’Brien
