Wise Owl Films has been commissioned to make three more series of the Sky Arts music documentary brand Guy Garvey: From The Vaults.
In each of the 15 new episodes, Elbow frontman Guy Garvey curates more clips of his favourite songs and performers from the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties from shows all found in the ITV Archive.
The series unearths both studio performances (including some which never made it to air) and revealing interviews that have in some cases remained on the Archive’s shelves for decades.
The clips come from programmes made by ITV companies around the country – from Granada Television’s Celebration and The Other Side of Midnight to Tyne Tees’ Razzmatazz, the Central TV kids show Tiswas to LWT’s Night Network and Supersonic - chronicling not just changing musical tastes from punk to funk, reggae to Britpop, but an evolution in the UK’s social and cultural history too.
In each episode, Guy gives his personal take on the tracks from a year or musical genre, as we hear about the performers who inspired his own song-writing career.
