Nile Rodgers: The Hitmaker, BBC documentary

Rodgers is best-known as half of disco-innovators Chic and as an über-producer who helped define the sound of the 70s and 80s. Recently, Rodgers has become a collaborator with (and unofficial spokesman for) Daft Punk, and even fronts an electronic music lobbying group.

Nile Rodgers: The Hitmaker spans Rodgers’ life and career, and features appearances from fellow Chic members (singers Norma Jean, Alfa Anderson and Fonzi Thornton and keyboard player Rob Sabino), recording engineers Bob Clearmountain and Robert Drake, and a laundry list of artists he’s worked with: Sister Sledge’s Kathy Sledge; Bryan Ferry; Steve Winwood; Johnny Marr; La Roux’s Elly Jackson; Valerie Simpson; Debbie Harry and Chris Stein from Blondie and Duran Duran’s John Taylor.
