BBC - 1Xtra - Dancehall After Dark

In a special week-long tribute to dancehall, 1Xtra has a series of excellent documentaries focussing on the history and progression of dancehall worldwide. Standouts are two shows by 1Xtra host, Robbo Ranx. Both shows are two hours in duration, but with their first-class production, insightful interviews and classic tunes, are well-worth checking out :

Buju Banton Talks - In depth interview with Buju Banton at his Gargamel Studio in JA. Also features some of the musical highlights from his long and influential history.

Hail The King - A look at the last Emperor of Ethiopia's impact on five generations of music makers. Includes a first-class sound-track and interviews with Luciano, Damian Marley, Sizzla, Buju Banton, Brinsley Forde, Capleton and Burning Spear.
