The death of Michael Jackson was one of the biggest stories of 2009. Six months on from his death this programme re-evaluates his impact on modern music. There are many stories that can be told about Michael Jackson - the court cases, the scandals, the bizarre behaviour. This programme ignores all that and instead tells the story of Michael Jackson's music. Tracing his music back to his roots in the so called 'Chitlin' circuit of the 1960s, musicians, producers and contemporaries assess Jackson's position within African-American culture, his mainstream appeal and his massive contribution to pop music and culture across the world. With contributions from Smokey Robinson, Jermaine Jackson, Martha Reeves and record producer and DJ Questlove. Michael Jackson Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour (1992) follows at 11.45pm.
