24 Hours20160308

A lot can happen in 24 Hours. Adele Roberts hears three stories of young people facing a landmark day in their careers. In each of these stories, holding your nerve can mean the difference between success or failure.

Genevieve Rolleston-Smith is a trainee helicopter pilot at the Defence Helicopter Flying School at RAF Shawbury. Today is a crucial day in her training. She'll be taking a pre-solo flight check in a simulator. She'll have to negotiate emergencies, including hydraulics failure. If she's successful, she can fly solo in a helicopter for the first time and will be well on the way to getting her wings. But if things don't go to plan, she may have to retrain and her future in the RAF could be in jeopardy.

Next, Adele meets Jack Laugher and Chris Mears. They're two divers from Leeds hoping to represent the country at this summer's Olympics. But before they can reach Rio, they need to secure their place on Team GB by winning a medal at the World Aquatics Championships in Kazan, Russia. Jack and Chris, who compete together in synchro, are totally reliant on each other to execute their dives in perfect precision. After a difficult year of injury, can they do enough to qualify?

Christopher Macarthur Boyd is an emerging stand-up comedian from Glasgow. In 2014 he reached the finals of nationwide talent search So You Think You're Funny. He's now been given his debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe called Fresh Blood. Tonight is opening night and he's feeling the pressure. Can he conquer his nerves to deliver a hilarious set?

30 Seconds To Mars2011082920111226 (R1)

Zane Lowe presents a unique insight into the band 30 Seconds To Mars.

With rumours flying that the band are splitting up, Zane sits down with Jared Leto, his brother Shannon, and Tomo MiliĀ?ević to set the record straight.

From growing up in Louisiana to doing glove puppets along to Led Zeppelin, getting their video banned to whether they are a cult, Zane goes in deep and asks the questions everyone wants to know about this band.

Without doubt the other most significant aspect of this band aside from having a Hollywood actor for a frontman is their fans. They call themselves The Echelon, and in a unique project, we asked them to send us in audio and video of themselves explaining why they are fans of this band and what being an Echelon means to them. We received videos from 29 different countries around the world, from the Phillipines to South Africa, Venezuela to Bulgaria, Chile to Finland.

This audio and video features in the programme, as well as in the short film you can see below.

From the relationship with the Echelon, to if Jared will ever act again, to the possibility that the band might split up at the end of this year, this is a unique insight into what has become a global phenomenon, from both the band and their fans.

In part two of Radio 1 Rocks, Zane Lowe presents a unique insight into 30 Seconds To Mars.

808s, 303s And 909s20130311

Listened to much hip-hop or dance music? If so, then you would have undoubtedly heard the sounds of either the Roland 808, 303 or 909 - but what are they and what do these numbers mean?

BBC Radio 1's Kutski discovers how three small electronic boxes from the 1980's sculpted the sound of both Hip-Hop and Dance music. He makes it his mission to track down the team that worked on the Roland 808, 303 and 909 machines to see if they had any idea their inventions would have such a massive influence on contemporary music.

He plots their integral role in the development of hip-hop, house and techno; and the myriad of sub-genres that have spawned from these. Kutski chats to DJ Premier, Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, The 2Bears, Flostradamus and Pete Tong amongst others as he founds out why producers around the globe continue to be obsessed with these sounds, more than three decades after they were first created.

It's the biggest night in the global entertainment industry and at this year's Oscars young British talent has a chance of taking away two of the biggest awards...and one of the smallest.

Director Steve McQueen and actor Chiwetel Ejiofor are up for Best Director and Best Actor for the epic 12 Years A Slave.

Anorexia: A Boy In A Girl's World20160510

For the very first time a ground-breaking unit in London lets the cameras in to find out what life is like for a teenage boy living in a girl's world.

17-year-old Charles has anorexia. He's battling to meet his target weight, and pass his GCSEs, before he has to leave the unit for good when he turns 18.

Eating disorders kill more people than any other mental health illness. Hospital admissions are going up and it's not just a female problem. Research suggests one in four people with an eating disorder is male; but experts say too few are getting the help they need because it's seen as a 'girls' condition'.

Music, culture, life.

Anti-social Media20150210

Social Media is a massive part of life. It can be a force for good - connecting people, building new friendships and providing entertainment that is everything from silly to inspirational.

But social media's constant presence and lack of face-to-face contact can make it very destructive when it is used negatively to bully, insult, ridicule and humiliate.

In this documentary, young people, both famous and not, share their real-life experiences of bullying online.

Presenter Chris Stark gathers a panel of anti-bullying and social media experts to hear the stories for the first time together and immediately give their thoughts and advice, in some way replicating the instant nature of social media abuse and how hard it is 'in the moment' to work out how to handle it.

Social Media is a massive part of life. It can be a force for good - connecting people, building new friendships and providing entertainment that is everything from silly to inspirational.

But social media's constant presence and lack of face-to-face contact can make it very destructive when it is used negatively to bully, insult, ridicule and humiliate.

Babymetal: Wembley To Tokyo2016050320160621 (R1)

Dev heads to Tokyo to investigate the phenomenal rise of Japanese band Babymetal.

Japanese culture is all around us, from games to movies, comic books to fashion magazines; and it's something that's fascinated Dev since he was a kid. The biggest cultural export from Japan in recent years has been the phenomenal rise of Babymetal; 3 school age girls fusing Metal with J-Pop, who recently performed a sold out concert in front of 12,000 fans at Wembley Arena.

Dev heads to Tokyo to learn more about the pop-culture that's spawned the band. He enters the world of traditional J-Pop idols (including Katy Perry endorsed Kyary Pamyu Pamyu), explores the Japanese rock scene (with Crossfaith), learns about kawaii fashion in Harajuku (Tokyo's equivalent to Camden Market) and has a wild karaoke night with a band called Ladybaby.

Bad Girl Done Good: The Story Of Rihanna20111114

Robyn Fenty, or Rihanna as she is more commonly known these days is one of the biggest names in showbiz, not only is she about to release her 6th Studio album 'Talk That Talk' but she is currently the face of a major jeans company, has launched her own fragrance, acted alongside Liam Neeson and graced the front-page of UK Vogue. But life wasn’t always this glamorous for Princess Ri-Ri.

Growing up with her two younger brothers in Bridgetown on the Caribbean Island of Barbados, Rihanna witnessed first hand her father Ronald’s abusive treatment of her mother, who would go on to raise her three children single-handedly after Ronald’s problem with drugs forced them to divorce. Having sung from the age of seven Rihanna escaped from her problems at home through music, spending her lunchtime’s at school pretending to be Destiny’s Child and Lauryn Hill. But in 2005, everything changed…

Spotted in an audition by a music exec whilst on holiday Rihanna was signed by Jay Z to Def Jam records within hours of her audition. She seemingly hasn’t stopped since, and now - 5 years later - she has 6 albums under her belt. From the stratospheric success of 2007’s Umbrella to her recent run in with a farmer in County Down, Rihanna has made headlines for much more than her music. But it is this unapologetic determination to do things ‘on her own terms’ that has made her such an icon.

In this programme Scott Mills hears from famous fans including Pixie Lott and Calvin Harris, plus those she’s met on the road to success, in order to uncover the good, the bad and the downright saucy sides of the bad girl who did good.

Produced by Jade Hutchinson for Wise Buddah.

Bbc Introducing Meets Hollywood20110725

Beats, Bleeps And Bass20121119

Dev continues to delve in to the world of video games in part two of Radio 1's Gaming Series.

This week he's going behind the bleeps and beats of early video game music to explore some of the influences it's had on the music industry, the artists it's inspired, sub genres it's created and the social communities that it has brought together.

Music and gaming has had a close relationship ever since those first harsh bleeps traced a virtual ping-pong ball around in the pioneering Atari developed arcade game Pong. These raw 8 bit sounds are often overlooked when credit is being given to the early pioneers of electronic music.

The relevance of the 8 bit and 16 bit beats, that most of us grew up with through the games that we played, are more obvious than ever as the explosion of the gaming industry has firmly cemented it in popular culture and influenced the way in which a whole generation creates music - forcing Pacman and friends from our desktops to our dance floors.

Find out the inspiration behind every beat, bleep and bass line, as Dev explores the communities of artists who owe their interest in music to video games and those who are hacking in to old Game Boys, C64's and other hardware in order to push the limits of this technology and recreate these retro sounds.

We hear from artists such as LA based 8 Bit Weapon, Sabrepulse, Chipzel, electronic artist Ikonika, Nintendocore rockers Horse The Band, Nerdcore rapper Random - a.k.a MegaRan, C64 composer Ben Daglish and the guys responsible for the addictive Scott Pilgrim vs The World game soundtrack - Anamanaguchi.

We'll also be looking at sampling and remixing cultures, hearing from Massive Attack producer Neil Davidge about his recent score for Halo 4, Health about their work on Max Payne 3 and Dutch drum & bass trio Noisia on their soundtrack for the new reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise.

Beyond The Music: Musicals With Clara Amfo20161025

Clara Amfo was first handed the keys to Radio 1's famous Live Lounge in May 2015 and has been presenting the mid-morning show ever since. One thing even regular listeners to her show may not realise though is that she's also secretly a huge fan of musicals!

In this programme for Radio 1 and 1Xtra Stories Clara explores how the musical has been reinvented in the 21st century.

She visits the set of hip-hop show In The Heights, as well as profiling Oliva Tweest, Britain's first Afrobeat musical. And three people from the Brit School tell us how they think musicals could become more successful than football...

Bitten: The Rise Of The Vampire20111107

The Twilight Saga unexpectedly hit our bookshelves in January 2006. Five years on, and the nation is still hooked by the invasion of blood-guzzlers in popular culture. But what is it about these night-time supernaturals? Why are they THIS popular and how did they change from scary old men with a black cloak and bad breath to R-Patz?

From The Lost Boys and Buffy to the current Twilight infatuation, BBC Radio 1’s resident film expert Rhianna charts the rise of the vampire, embarking on a journey with the true Twi-hards and vamp fans to uncover the ten commandments of the modern vampire. When did they become so good looking and why on earth do they sparkle?

Rhianna hears from all the main players, from the casts of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries and True Blood to novelists Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris, and speaks exclusively to the new vampire on the scene in Being Human.

From TV and films to fashion and music, Rihanna charts the infiltration of these bloodsuckers in popular culture and the characteristics that have enabled them to do so. The latest musicians added to the impressive roster of Twilight soundtrack contributors, Iron and Wine, The Noisettes, Joy Formidable and Christina Perri, speak about what the genre means to them and how the music industry has benefited from their vampire exposure.

Is Rhianna seduced by these sexy immortals? She shares her own thoughts on the genre and finds out what twist is coming next in the vampire story. One step away from the final installment, what on earth will the Twi-hards do once the Twilight saga concludes?

Boot Boys: The Story Of The Football Apprentice.20110919

The world of a professional footballer seems to have it all: glamour, fame, money - all while you get to play football for a living.

But what does it really take to achieve ultimate success? Former professional footballer Dion Dublin lifts the lid on this often private and guarded industry. At the heart of this programme are the stories of two young football apprentices striving to be offered professional contracts at Cambridge United FC. Their experiences as young footballers are contrasted with those of apprentices at the Premier League's Aston Villa.

The apprentices Dion follows are typical teenage boys - interested in music, socialising, clothes, girls and football. They guide us through their background, their motivations in life, their concerns for the future and their ultimate ambition of becoming a professional footballer. What tough life choices have they already made to be in this position? Do they regret not taking other opportunities? Have they got any other career in mind if their attempt fails? What is their typical day like?

We explore their hopes, dreams and their insecurities, which are probably familiar to many other teenagers in Britain. We also hear from those who have already made the grade - Darren Bent, Stiliyan Petrov and Sir Trevor Brooking, on what they sacrificed as young men to reach the heights of professional football; and from Chipmunk, who was a football apprentice before choosing music as his career.

Breakbeat Kaos20120806

DJ Fresh and Adam F are legends in the scene. Many know Fresh bagged the first ever Number 1 dubstep and Drum & Bass records with 'Louder' and 'Hot Right Now', but not everybody knows the journey he took to get there.

We shed light on Fresh's early days in Drum & Bass super group Bad Company, whose high energy tunes changed the sound of a genre, and Fresh reveals how close he was to giving up music entirely, as well as how a story from Paulo Coelho kept him going, leading eventually to his massive commercial success.

Adam F is also a super-producer. His Mobo award winning 'Colours' album is one of the most important in the Drum & Bass scene, whilst 'Kaos', his pioneering hip hop album, meant he was one of the UK's first underground producers to travel to America and work with A-list artists such as Redman, LL Cool J and De La Soul.

Together Adam F and DJ Fresh run the label, Breakbeat Kaos, probably the most influential label in Bass music, having brought through artists like Pendulum, Chase & Status, Nero and The Brookes Brothers.

This is the story of DJ Fresh & Adam F as both label owners and artists in their own right.

With guests including: contemporaries - Fabio, Grooverider, dBridge, LTJ Bukem, London Electricity; artists they've signed - Pendulum, Chase & Status, The Brookes Brothers; artists they've worked with - Rita Ora, Dizzee Rascal, Rizzle Kicks, Redman, LL Cool J; and artists they've inspired - Flux Pavillion, Example, Rudimental, Benga & Skream.

Bring Me The Horizon: Metal From The Steel City20160607

Bring Me The Horizon's rise to success has been fairly epic. Formed in Sheffield as teenagers over a mutual admiration for metalcore, they've defied critics to become one of the biggest British metal exports. Since the release of their debut album Count Your Blessings in 2006 the band have toured the world, consistently hitting bigger venues and gathering multiple accolades along the way.

British Inside20140331

1Xtra's Nick Bright delves into the hidden world of immigration detention centres, discovering how one charitable organisation is helping people cope with life behind bars. Their music room provides a musical outlet and sought after refuge for many of the detainees, held indefinitely in one of the UK's biggest IRC's (immigration removal centres).

British Inside follows the day-to-day lives of detainees, now released on bail, who use beats and rhymes to tell their stories, unravelling the intricacies of life spent living on the edge of a society they thought they once knew.

Featuring original music created by IRC detainees, Nick investigates life stuck in the immigration system here in the UK, which, for the most-part, is kept firmly in the dark.

Bruising Silence20120813

Gemma Cairney leads a dynamic, poignant and revealing documentary about the hidden world of teenage abusive relationships.

The programme explores the issue of emotional and violent abuse through different types of relationships, including male on female, female on male and same sex - both from the perspective of the abused and the abuser, with additional contributions from experts in the issues.

We also wind back to the story of the then 19-year old hip hop star Chris Brown, who attacked his girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna, beating, biting and kicking her until she lost consciousness. We will take a look at how the story was reported on Radio 1's Newsbeat and how quickly it was all forgotten.

This story is based on the first official study of its kind into young abusive relationships, which was commissioned by the NSPCC and the Home Office. It reports 25% of girls and 18% of boys have been physically abused and 75% of girls and 50% of boys have suffered emotional abuse. The study also found that sexual violence happened to one in three girls and one in six boys.

Gemma talks to victims, perpetrators and carers as she tries to get to the bottom of this 'secret' world and under-reported story.

These powerful stories and experiences will be brought together with Gemma's own personal commentary.

Can A Robot Replace Ed Sheeran?2017031920170321 (R1)

Greg James is on a mission. Can he find out a robot to replace Ed Sheeran?

He'll be teaming up with 15 mechanical machines from the Manchester Robot Orchestra to play Ed's song 'Shape of You'. But he wants to find a robot that can sing and dance just like Ed too!

After a nationwide search he thinks he's found the perfect humanoid robot - and maybe his Radio 1 audience love his creation more than the real Ed? He'll put it through its paces by challenging it to a live interview and a rap-off, aiming to find out how it measures up on-air to a real life celebrity.

Then, after an intense period of rehearsing and robot coding, we head to the BBC's legendary Maida Vale studios. It could be the biggest night of their robotic lives - assuming none of them blow a fuse...

Classical Connections With Chilly Gonzales20150818

Chilly Gonzales joins the dots between the seemingly polarised worlds of classical and pop, taking us on a whirlwind journey through musical time with help from Alt J, Arcade Fire, London Grammar, Vampire Weekend, Clean Bandit and Bon Iver. Sitting at his piano, Chilly tells the story of 1000 years of musical evolution in just one hour, from medieval music to minimalism, and explains it's relevance to the hip-hop, metal, indie and dance music of today.

Chilly also hears from well known pop stars discussing their lesser known passions for classical music. Did you know that Beethoven is Vampire Weekend's top tip for a hangover cure? Or that Alt J would not exist if not for Gregorian Chanting? Or that Chopin's 'pop melodies' inspire London Grammar's Dot Major?

However, as BBC Radio 3's Suzy Klein states, classical music still has something of an image problem. Despite there being a thriving and exhilarating contemporary scene in the UK, with new music being brought to new spaces and audiences around the country, negativity around the term 'classical' persists. Over the course of this programme Chilly asks if these negative perceptions are fair.

For fans of Muse, Mozart, Plan B, Purcell, Justin Timberlake, JS Bach, Dr Dre and Dimitri Shostakovich.

Conor Maynard: Mayniacs Take Over20121015

Despite his down to earth demeanour, Conor Maynard is not just any normal 19 year old. Whilst most guys his age are busy with computer games, college or finding a job - Conor found himself locked in a bidding war between record labels, US R&B star Ne-Yo and Pharrell Williams!

Not bad for a kid that, just a couple of years ago, was singing covers in his bedroom and uploading the videos to YouTube, content with notching up a few views each month and the odd comment from his Nan.

Little did he know that, through the internet, he was stepping on to the biggest stage possible and was on the brink of taking the music world - and boys and girls hearts - by storm.

Fast forward a few years and Conor has one of the most subscribed YouTube channels in the UK and is the owner of a Number 1 debut album, produced by big names such as The invisible Men and Midi Mafia; and featuring collaborations with the likes of Rita Ora, Ne-Yo and Pharrell, as well as a special track penned by Frank Ocean.

This is the story of Conor Maynard, as told by those that know him best - his friends, family, his YouTube collaborators, 'brutha from anutha mutha' Anth Melo, his band and producers Midi Mafia and The Invisible Men.

Nick Grimshaw chats to Conor as we chart his story so far, hearing an exclusive play of a previously unreleased track from his first ever recorded demo as we go, as well as excerpts from some of his live shows.

And of course, we hear from some of his fans. The ones who made it all possible in the first place - THE MAYNIACS!

Crossroads: The Girls20131021

Prison life is something few are likely to have to face, but it's a serious risk for the three young women featured in this Radio 1 Story.

In this revealing programme, Adele Roberts talks to the three about their lives and finds out what's led them to commit crime. They have tough stories, which often remain hidden.

Adele then takes the recordings into HMP Downview, a female prison, and plays them to a group of women serving sentences, before asking them what it's really like to be behind bars. The prisoners respond to the stories from the outside and describe the realities of life in prison, before recording messages for Adele to take back and play to the three girls.

As Kerry, one of the women in prison, says: ""If I had someone speaking out to me the way I am now - I would have been strong enough to not make the mistakes I did."

In a moving finale, the messages are played to the girls at risk of prison. Will the prisoners' words inspire them to change their lives?

This programme contains content which some people may find distressing.

Detagged2013120220140203 (R1)

Greg James heads online to try and rid the web of his most embarrassing photos!

Greg James tries to delete his most embarrassing photos from the web. Along the way, he meets listeners who've lost control of their online image and realises the consequences of sharing too much.

From Snapchat and Instagram to Twitter and Facebook, sharing our favourite snaps is now part of everyday life. But when our private pictures become public property we can't always predict the outcome. First, Greg meets Hannah, who experienced first-hand the frustration of an embarrassing drunken photo being shared by a friend who just refuses to take it down. We meet sixth form students who use Snapchat to make sure that their embarrassing photos decay within ten seconds - but with screen grabs so easy to take and share they remind us that it's all about who you trust.

But what happens when those you trust the most let you down? Holly and David both shared intimate photos with their partners while in long distance relationships, but when they split up the photos appeared on 'Revenge Porn' websites which displayed them along with links to their social networking pages. Harassed by messages from people across the world viewing their most private moments Holly was even forced to change her name for her own safety.

We also meet many who have lost and found jobs as a result of online photos. Model Jake Barratt was signed by Premier Model Scout Anthony Gordon after a colleague spotted his chiselled features in his Facebook profile picture. On the other hand, Will was stopped from hiring someone as a runner on a TV comedy show because they were mooning the camera in their profile picture! Employment lawyer Juliette Franklin also tells us about cases she's had to handle where colleagues and friends reporting photos resulted in disciplinary action.

It's not just today's photos which can affect us - we meet pupils who've forgotten about their old MySpace photos, including one which labelled them as part of the 'Dirty Skankers Club'. Kate also tells us about her experiences of bullying when her Dad's collection of family photos was uncovered by the whole school.

Finally we hear from Carol Todd, the mother of Amanda Todd, a 15 year old Canadian teenager who committed suicide in 2012 after being bullied online and offline due to topless photos taken on a webcam by someone she thought was her own age.

Along the way Greg meets with online expert Darika Ahrens to hunt down his most embarrassing online photos and see how easy it would be for him to get them removed. When he hears from Yasmin, who says Facebook refused to remove a fake account under her name, he presses Darika for the best advice on how to deal with the big social network sites and how to take control of what people see when they search for you online.

Disasterpieces20121203

To compliment Radio 1's much-loved 'Masterpieces' series with Zane Lowe, Scott Mills presents 'Disasterpieces' - a humorous look at those disastrous albums made by artists under pressure. From having no time to write, to unsuccessfully trying to reinvent themselves, or leaving the original band to go solo - we explore all the different reasons as to why these washout albums have failed to impress!

Did the Scissor Sisters try too hard to be different? Did Guns and Roses buckle under the pressure of lack of time? We also speak with The xx, Mumford & Sons, The Vaccines, 2 Door Cinema Club, Chapel Club, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Pulled Apart By Horses and Egyptian Hip Hop - who describe the various pressures involved with producing follow-up albums in 2012.

Every Day I'm Hustlin'20130415

Want to be a pop star? Take a listen to this first...

Georgia Lewis Anderson investigates exactly what it takes to make it to the top in the pop world. Artists can no longer rely on album sales to make their money, being a star often means becoming a business as well.

When pop stars do manage to give up their part time jobs, the nature of the industry means that success doesn't always last. Georgia will hear from former popstars about the wide-ranging careers they have gone back to, including roofing and personal training, while former All Saint Shaznay Lewis is writing songs for a new generation of stars. We also discover the unlikely career backup plans of current artists. And Georgia, now a successful TV and radio presenter, recalls her own days of hustling and blagging - including the times she's been in front of the cameras in a designer outfit, with the label still in so it can go back to the shop in the morning!

Stephanie Davis (Sinead O'Conner from Hollyoaks) tells us how she found fame as a teenager difficult at first; while others talk about the challenges of being instantly recognised in the street and balancing long filming days with school work and having fun with their friends.

With a part in a soap comes responsibility, especially when taking on controversial storylines, and Alfie Brown-Sykes (Jason in Hollyoaks) tells us how he's managing his character's current body image issues.

Girls On Film20130729

Everyone wants to be famous and an increasing number of young, attractive girls have found a way of getting a glimmer of that fame while earning a fast buck.

In Girls On Film, Sara Cox talks to women who get naked on camera for a living to discover what life as a 'glamour girl' is really like.

Flick through your TV late at night and you'll find dozens of TV stations dedicated to live 'babes' - video chat channels where young women take calls from viewers live on-air and bare (almost) everything.

Yet more opportunities are available on webcam sites, where guys get to 'enjoy' glamour girls using live chat and, if they pay a little more, virtual 'private rooms'.

Letesha, Lily and Beth are all in their 20s and all in the glamour industry. They tell us what it's like appearing on these sorts of channels. What are the risks? What did their family and friends say when they found out what they do for a living? What do their futures hold?

We also meet Danica Thrall, who found fame in a reality TV documentary called Sex, Lies and Rinsing Guys, and went on to appear in last year's Celebrity Big Brother. She has loads of experience in the glamour industry, from 'babe channels' to the front cover of FHM.

She knows the risks and the pitfalls, so what would she say if her daughter wanted to go down the same career path?

And we meet Dan, who admits logging on to webcam sites most days. How does he see his relationship with the girls who take their clothes off for his enjoyment?

Finally, we hear from a celebrity agent who knows what happens to the career prospects of girls who strip naked on camera.

Girls On Film is a rare chance to get inside a mysterious world and hear the unblemished truth about life in front of the camera.

Going Home?20130204

Can somewhere you've never been really be 'home'? Gemma Cairney follows three young Brits as they travel across the world to discover their roots.

"I know where I'm from in terms of where I was born, but my whole heritage is unknown to me. It's time I really found out."

Darian was born in London. When his Nigerian dad died ten years ago, he lost all his ties to Africa, but now he's going there for the first time. Natalie's granddad came to Britain long before she was born, but she wants to go to Dominica to find out where he's from. And 15 year old Brendan has been planning a trip to his mum's hometown in Zimbabwe for years.

Nigeria, Dominica and Zimbabwe - places that are nothing like what Darian, Natalie and Brendan are used to. Will they fit in? Can they feel at home in a strange continent, surrounded by relatives they've only just met? And will the journey change their ideas about where is home?

Gemma follows their journeys - from climbing Caribbean waterfalls, to milking African cows, from vibrant weddings and music blaring on every corner, to children begging on the street. And we hear from Tinchy Stryder, Dynamite MC and Twin B from the 1Xtra Breakfast Show about what happened when they went ""home"".

The documentary will explore the role that creativity has played in these young people’s journeys and its importance in helping them seek careers they are driven and passionate about. Sophie is an exciting new voice in writing, Duke, an accomplished MC, whilst Michael is a budding radio presenter who’s been speaking to Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham in a bid to improve the lives of other care leavers like himself.

All three creatives have been set a brief to perform a piece at the 1Xtra Live Outreach Program based on their care story. With their mentors' support, and the work of Reform Radio, how are they using their creativity to turn their lives around?

The program is presented by current BBC 1Xtra daytime presenter Yasmin Evans, who is originally from Manchester and has been specifically commissioned as part of 1Xtra’s outreach work in the area ahead of 1Xtra Live at Manchester Arena on 11th November.

Hooray! I'm A Single Parent20120618

BBC 2012's Community Reporters investigate the highs and lows of life as a single parent in East London. The reporters focus on the stories of young mums and dads living within the area, talking to them about the joys of parenthood and also some of the challenges they've faced.

This documentary is one of two programmes produced by a group of 14 young people from East London on the BBC 2012 Community Reporters Scheme. Over seven weeks they were trained in all aspects of journalism, before working with the Radio 1 and 1Xtra Stories team to produce two 60 minute programmes. From generating the initial ideas and developing a structure, to recording the interviews and editing the finished content, it's all their own work.

Presented by one of the trainees, a single parent herself, this programme tries to tackle the negative stereotypes around lone parenting - especially after last year's riots in England, when some people blamed the violence on broken families.

Inspiration Generation20130819

A year on from the Olympics, Gemma Cairney explores the struggles of young athletes.

Last year the eyes and ears of the world were on London as it hosted the Olympic Games.

The mantra of the games was to create an Olympic legacy to ""Inspire a Generation"", making sure that sport is accessible for everybody. But there are still many barriers making it hard for young people in sport: money, gender, family and how about just trying to be a normal young person? How do you balance training, school work and your social life?

Some of last year's Olympic heroes tell us what it takes to make it to the top of that podium: Usain Bolt, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford, Gemma Gibbons, the Brownlee brothers, Karina Bryant and more.

Gemma Cairney discovers how hard it really is to grow up being an elite athlete through four athletes smashing down barriers to follow their Olympic dream:

- Aaron Turner is a Judo player. He's 21 and has already had to make huge sacrifices for a life in Judo. How can you be a normal 21-year-old lad, not earning any money and training every day?

- Kyle Powell is T45 sprinter. How does he deal with his disability and moving away from his friends and family to give himself the best shot in the world of sprinting?

- Mercy Brown is a female weightlifter from Tower Hamlets. How hard is it to compete in a sport that is traditionally dominated by men?

- And Dan Neilson is a showjumper based in Essex with his girlfriend, Stacy. He previously followed his father's influence into boxing and football before ending up in the stables. What's it like for Dan competing in an unconventional sport for a 21-year-old?

A year on from the Olympics, Gemma Cairney explores the struggles of young athletes.

Is Protest Music Dead?2016012620160405 (R1)

Jamie MacColl from Bombay Bicycle Club explores what has happened to protest music.

Jamie MacColl is the guitarist from Bombay Bicycle Club. He also happens to come from an amazing heritage of protest singers - his grandfather was the British activist and protest singer Ewan MacColl, his grandmother is the US feminist and folk singer Peggy Seeger and his great uncle was Pete Seeger, who helped popularise the protest song ""We Shall Overcome"" in the 1960s.

However Jamie admits his own band's music is far from political.

Keen to explore the current state of ""protest music"", Jamie goes on a journey to find out who, if anyone, still makes protest music. And, if they don't, do musicians still find ways to speak out about issues, socially, politically or culturally?

From the #blacklivesmatter movement in the US, to artists saying what they really think on twitter, to the rise and rise of grime in the UK, Jamie finds out whether protest music is dead, or has just evolved.

Includes interviews with Billy Bragg, Olly from Years and Years, Hozier, Ghetts, Little Simz, Rou Reynolds from Enter Shikari, US artist Tink and a sit down chat between Jamie and his own grandmother Peggy Seeger.

Jessie J: Lyrics Of My Life20150120

Jessie J is more than just a pop star. She's a singer, a songwriter and, more importantly, a positive role model for young women and teenagers.

From a young age Jessie found solace in songwriting, which helped her to channel all of her emotions.

Junior Jocks: Madeon And Disclosure20130805

Junior Jocks: Madeon & Disclosure. Producers' ages keep on dropping - their success keeps on growing!

You don't have to be old enough to get into a club to make dance music...

Back in the day, in order to even start making music, producers needed access to hi-tech studios, for which you needed some serious cash. Then, once you'd made the track, you needed a manager, record label, a plugger, a tour - otherwise how do you get your music heard by the right people?!

But nowadays, that's all changed. All you need is your computer and the internet. Oh, and a little musical-know how.

Going in deep with Madeon and Disclosure, B Traits presents Junior Jocks - the rise of the young producer. Including interviews with Totally Enourmous Extinct Dinosaurs, Phoenix, Skream, Benga, Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Disclosure's music teacher!

Keeping Mum20121008

18 year old Pippa Haines describes winning her 2011 Radio 1 'Teen Hero' award as one of the highlights of her life. She says she was overwhelmed by cheering crowds at Wembley and was stopped for her autograph on the way back to her hotel.

Since then though she has returned to caring for her disabled mum, her sister with mental health problems and her autistic nephew. She also works several jobs to help pay household bills and does her best to keep up with college work.

She is part of what one researcher into young adult carers' lives has described as a ""hidden and neglected army"" and she says the pressure on her can sometimes seem too much to bear.

Greg James hands control of Radio 1 to Pippa and a group of other young adult carers from across the UK. There's also a surprise visit to the studio from a pop superstar, who became a young carer at the age of 11.

Lad Points20141007

Last year Radio 1's Chris Stark introduced the world to the concept of Lad Points by accident.

The interview was viewed more than 12 million times and shared around the world, leading to appearances on the likes of Access Hollywood, Good Morning America and E News. But what actually are Lad Points and how do you go about earning them?

The stereotype most associated with being a lad involves getting drunk, sleeping around and generally being a bit of an idiot. Does that really have to be the case though? With the help of his army of Twitter followers Chris Stark investigates what it really takes to be the ultimate lad.

Along the way he meets an actual Dr of Lad Points, learns about the importance of climbing ability with 1000 young farmers and joins a bunch of real-life 'Inbetweeners' on a night out in Essex.

Let Me Into The Music20120514

Disabled and non-disabled music lovers alike agree, you might have 99 problems, but getting in to see your favourite band shouldn't be one. If music is your religion, then paying homage shouldn't feel like paying a visit to the dentist, right? In this programme Nihal investigates equal access to live music. He learns that disabled access has come a long way since the campaigning charity Attitude is Everything formed in 2000, but both punters and professionals explain why there's still a long way to go.

Some people might never have given access a second thought, but others have to think about it way too much. What if all your mates had access all areas passes and you were left out in the cold, or stuck in the corner with a great view of the fire exit? If you're disabled, access to music venues and festivals, like many public places, can still be a lottery. But is it really too much to ask to see your favourite band, without it turning into an obstacle course or military operation?

Nihal takes listeners on tour, backstage and in the mosh pit with gig-goers and artists across the disability spectrum to find out what equal access means to them and why it should matter to everyone. We check out a legendary rock venue out of hours, tour a tiny pub venue with Blaine from the Mystery Jets, meet young disabled performers doing it for themselves, feel the vibrations from a deaf rave DJ set and find out just what it takes to put on a totally accessible gig.

Young people open up about what it's like to be music fans, who just happen to be disabled. Both promoters and venue owners are upfront about how much progress has been made to improve facilities and we hear from campaigners working with industry insiders to make sure access is guaranteed, not denied.

Life After The Deal2015080220150811 (R1)

Fame. Hits. Success. Money. Every young aspiring artist is certain that's what their future will hold when they sign on the dotted line of their first major music deal.

But in reality, even while still enjoying the whirl of relatively new-found celebrity, many performers can quickly find themselves 'parting ways' with their label, and almost as soon as they thought they'd 'made it'.

Imagine still being recognised, getting invited to premieres and parties, with fans asking for your autograph, but at the same time feeling crushed because you've been left without a deal and unemployed.

In 'Life After The Deal' MistaJam finds out what happens next, after the recording contract is cut short.

Loud Wars20130617

Loud music can sound incredible. Extreme volume moves the air pressure around you and this can have a dramatic physical and emotional effect on your body and mind. In the right environment, it can sound truly life affirming.

But did you ever stop to ask, 'why is music so loud?'

Join Zane Lowe as he tells the story of the Loudness War, a phenomenon which changed the sound of music forever. We hear from Knife Party's Rob Swire and mastering engineer Scott Hull as they explain how to make your records sound as loud as possible!

Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari, Skream and Benga, The Joy Formidable and Kutski describe how bands and DJs compete to make their music sound bigger and brighter than one another in an attempt to stand out on the radio and in clubs. But what qualities of sound are lost along the way?

Bands have been competing for the title of 'Loudest Band in the World' for years, but who holds that claim to fame now? We hear from Jack White, Daniel P Carter, Cancer Bats and Gallows and find out how to sound really ferocious live!

That's not all, Zane discovers how to fine tune a dance sound system at Ministry Of Sound, goes to Download Festival to learn about the new wave of sound engineers inspired by physics and even visits one of the quietest rooms in the world. So quiet it can send you a little bit mad!

But volume isn't the only way to make your music have an impact. Alt-J, Daughter and Annie Mac explain some of the recording and production techniques you can use to make silence and space sound just as powerful.

How much louder can music get? Zane attempts to find out and helping him along the way is DJ Yoda, with a WORLD EXCLUSIVE Loud Wars Mini Mix.

Make Some Noise!20131014

Plan B's Ill Manors was hailed as the return of the protest song when it came out last year - but has protest music ever really faded away? Ricky Norwood confronts the myth of the death of the protest song by speaking with some of today's musicians who are using their platform to discuss topical issues, discovering that there are all kinds of ways of bringing political and social themes into music.

Musical legends Jerry Dammers, Benjamin Zephaniah and Billy Bragg set the scene for what things were like when they were beginning to make music, when a whole subculture - punk - was characterised by anti-establishment views; and songs like The Specials' 'Ghost Town' were reflecting the feeling of a country in crisis.

Fast forward to the present day and does music still have a role to play in protest and social commentary? Of course it does, and there are plenty of young artists out there to prove it. Enter Shikari, Louise Distras and Sonic Boom Six have all taken influences from the punk scene to make their own music with a message. We hear from MC Akala, Scroobius Pip, George the Poet, The Ruby Kid and the Lyrically Challenged Collective, who demonstrate how hip hop and spoken word are at the forefront of politically and socially aware music. We also find out that protest can be found even where you might least expect it, hearing from dubstep collective Engine Earz Experiment.

Is there a place for protest music in the mainstream? PJ Harvey has proved that there is, yet bringing it to a wider audience is not without its problems. The Left Field at Glastonbury however provides a platform for artists to speak out, combining debates with music and activism.

Finally, we hear the winning song from the first annual Amnesty International protest song competition, and consider whether music really can change things?

Plus we hear from big hitting promoters, DJs and record label heads on how to make that next step in your music career.

Making It On The Big Screen20120227

Who hasn't dreamed of seeing their name in lights, or fantasised about strutting down the red carpet in show-stopping couture? Radio 1's film buff Rhianna sees whether she's got what it takes to make it onto the big screen with little more than big dreams and small change. She meets other young hopefuls striving to get noticed at drama school, on the casting circuit and, increasingly, online. What are their top tips for getting that all-important big break? And what about those who've already 'made it' - can they recall what catapulted them into the big time?

It's always been tough trying to be The Next Big Thing, but with the recession still biting and the UK Film Council a thing of the past, Rhianna considers the future of the British film industry as a whole. And if stardom's out of reach for most of us mere mortals, what other career paths lead to lights, camera, action?

Rhianna finds there's a lot more to movie-making than the chosen few who leave their mark on the Walk of Fame, but, with the Oscars upon us, our young starlet still craves a taste of the limelight - just who will the Academy Award go to and, crucially, how in Hollywood did they get it?

Meet The Net Addicts20141104

As increasing numbers of people admit to problems with compulsive online porn viewing, visiting adult chat rooms, gaming, or spending excessive time on social networks, Aled Haydn Jones examines how the information technology that we all take for granted is becoming a problem for some.

Children as young as 11 are being treated for addiction to computer games; and, in some cases, their parents have been threatened with violence when they tried to take devices away from them.

In this programme Aled meets several young people for whom being online has turned negative - among them 20 year old David from Belfast, whose gaming habits went out of control. 'I'd play for 16 hours every single day, I would get up, switch my lap top on, immediately start playing until it was time to sleep. I wouldn't even get up to get food, I'd get my parents to bring the meals out to me because I just didn't want to get out of the zone.'

David says one game really took over his life. 'I had to win. It was life or death. Whenever I did lose I'd lose my cool. I'd shout at people and I smashed so much stuff just through playing online games.'

Linda's 21 year old son Connor, from London, developed a gaming addiction over three years after suffering from clinical depression. He would spend 13 or 14 hours online constantly and Linda says it had a physical impact on her son. 'He would eat a diet of coca cola and pizza and take it all up to his room. He put on about three stone.'

But gaming isn't the only online activity which can take over your life. 19 year old Danny from Alnwick developed an addiction to posting selfies of himself on Facebook and other social media. He says: 'I was posting 200 selfies a day, it was completely out of control and technology enabled that.'

Aled hears from experts about how widespread the problem is and how online habits are often related to other issues in peoples' lives. He also hears about a centre in America dedicated to helping people with their online addictions.

Mixed Up Teens20131104

Although they've all had varied influences, every generation of teenagers has felt 'misunderstood' in different ways. Yet they've always remained upbeat and had a positive outlook on life.

This special mixed up collage explores the thoughts, sounds and lives of teenagers over the last five decades, using both archive content and music to highlight the amazing journeys of young people growing up.

Over the course of an hour, a playlist from the 60's to the present day intertwines with the important themes of teenagers developing and finding their way through life. From the Beatles to Bros to Bowie to Blur to Breach, the music takes us through all tastes and genres.

Deep within the show there's an exclusive mini-mix dedicated to the acid house rave generation; and we explore themes like idols, fashion, sex and technology. The sonic palette is further extended with star filled insights and understandings of their time.

It's a chance to immerse yourself in the common, and not so common, ambitions, fears, hopes and dreams of different generations, in an entertaining and thought provoking way.

The show comes to a close with a truly heartfelt poem from the brilliant spoken word artist Kate Tempest - guaranteed to leave you with a tear in your eye.

Mumford And Sons: Gentlemen Of The Road20150922

All four members of Mumford & Sons talk exclusively to Radio 1 as they take us backstage at their Gentleman of the Road Stopover festival in Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands.

My First Vote20140407

With six months to go, what are the big issues and how will the result affect young people across the UK? We start in a farm on the very edge of Scotland, with England just a few fields away. That's the home of Kirsty, one of Generation 2014 - a group of 50 young voters the BBC is following throughout referendum year.

My Mum Wants To Die20150630

24-year old Josh has recently discovered that, like his mum, he carries the Huntington's Disease gene. Eventually Josh won't be able to swallow, let alone play rugby, but he is adamant that both he and his mum will end their lives before the disease takes hold.

Currently, in the UK it is illegal to assist someone ending their life and a £30,000 trip to Dignitas in Switzerland is not an option Josh and his mum can afford. Lord Falconer's Assisted Dying Bill is soon to re-enter Parliament, and Josh is campaigning for a change in the law, but what exactly would it mean?

We follow Josh on a journey to meet others with a range of views and experiences; including a young disability campaigner against the new law and a group of young medics who may have to assist their patients dying in the future.

Will Josh see the bigger picture and change his mind, or will he continue to fight for him and his mum to die with dignity on their terms?

My Transgender Punk Rock Story20131216

Last year, Rolling Stone Magazine featured an interview with the lead singer of punk rock band Against Me! Her name, Laura Jane Grace was new to even the most die-hard of Against Me! fans, yet she was the very same person who had been singing with the band since its inception. Before that interview Laura's fans would have known her as lead singer Tom Gabel, but after living her life as a man for 31 years, Laura decided enough was enough and took the big decision to be the person she knew she always had been. A woman.

Against Me! have played venues all over the world, sold thousands of albums and have high profile fans like the Foo Fighters, Frank Turner and Bruce Springsteen. Against Me! are a true part of the Punk Rock scene and have a healthy fan base to show it. With help from Radio 1's Paris Lees, Laura takes some time out from her punk rock life to find out what it's like being a transgender person in the UK and the challenges people face from being born in the wrong body.

We meet transgender people from all walks of life, from those forced to live under anonymity to YouTube stars, beauty queens and even transgender stand-up comics. We discuss the dark world of transphobic attacks that happen in the streets, in the workplace and at school. We ask the Gendered Intelligence Trust about the impacts of these attacks and the resulting pain, depression and even suicide. Above all this Radio 1 Story celebrates the spirit of the transgender community, often misunderstood and challenged, but simply a group of individuals looking to live a happy and normal life like anybody else.

Radio 1's Surgery Doctor Sanjay Pawar is on hand to talk to about the options people have if they do decide to change gender, from puberty blockers to surgery or just doing nothing at all. And we hear from the British public and find out what they really know about transgender issues. With the trans community having had a dogged past with the media, we tackle them as well. We look into why this has been the case and talk to a few people who could help with making that a thing of the past.

As well as talking to the UK transgender community, we will find out what it's been like for Laura over the past year. We talk about life before Laura Jane Grace and how she fought her need to be a woman with drug and drink abuse whilst praying to God and the devil to make her a woman. We also look at what her life has been like since May 2012 - from band mates quitting the band and her relationship with her family, friends and fans.

New York Hijabis20170411

Having met in 2015 whilst making the Radio 1 documentary 'High Street Hijabis', former Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts and YouTube vlogger Nabiilabee return to investigate what it means to be a Muslim woman who wants to dress modestly but fashionably in Trump's America.

With exclusive backstage access to Indonesian designer Anniesa Hasibuan's 2017 New York Fashion Week show, which featured an all hijabi model line-up on the catwalk and immigrant models, this timely documentary shines a light on an industry that by 2019 is estimated to be worth $327 billion.

'New York Hijabis' also meets with designers, journalists, activists, modeling agents and social media influencers to better understand the scene and explore the differences between the industry in the US and UK.

Amidst President Trump's two failed travel bans, what is it like to be a Muslim in America right now and what effect has President Trump's political rhetoric had on the modest fashion industry? Especially when contrasted against the idea that modest fashion seeks to empower Muslim females who wish to dress modestly and fashionably.

Night Time With The Xx20120903

The xx's debut album was one of 2009's freshest, most intimate and mesmerizing releases. It helped the band develop from underground sensation to mainstream acclaim, at home and across the globe.

It started when four teenagers (soon to be a three-piece) from South London, just about to reach their 20th (xx) year, put out an album at odds with just about everything else out there. It wasn't big, bold or brassy. It was sparse, quiet and a little shy. But it was magnetic and soulful and burrowed under the skin of many new music fans and won the 2010 Mercury Music Prize. Tracks were covered by Shakira and Gorillaz, became the soundtrack to the 2010 Winter Olympics and were sampled by Rihanna. The NME called it 'nothing less than stunning'.

For nearly two years, Radio 1's Huw Stephens has been granted rare, exclusive access to the musical world of this very private band, as they've gone about making its follow-up album 'Coexist'.

Huw meets them at their rehearsal studio in East London and at their new specially-chosen recording space in North-East London, amongst the makeshift vocal booths, skateboard beat-machines and steel drums. Much of their first album was written separately, communicating by ichat and recorded in the middle of the night. So what has changed with this album and how self-conscious have they been now they know the whole world is listening?

As the band unveil their new material to Huw, he also hears from some of their fans eagerly awaiting the new album at their first intimate live gigs. Plus famous fans and collaborators including Florence Welch, Drake, Micachu and Kwes add their thoughts about the magnetic appeal of the band and why so many of us have made them our late-night soundtrack.

Puppet On A String: Sexual Exploitation In Gangs20140127

Puppet On A String tackles the dark issue of sexual exploitation in gangs, with Adele Roberts journeying into an under-reported and often violent part of UK gang culture.

The Office of the Children's Commissioner has spent the last two years taking a close look at the subject and found 2,409 young people were known to be victims of sexual exploitation by gangs and groups. A further 16,500 are at risk.

But sexual exploitation is not a crime and there isn't much support out there for these silent sufferers - who can be as young as 11. The victims are often young girls, but this is not always the case. Boys can also be pushed into sexual exploitation by psychologically and physically being forced into raping girls by gang 'Olders'.

In this programme we'll be looking in-depth at this serious issue plaguing the streets right across the UK - from Glasgow to Manchester, Birmingham to London.

We'll be finding out what a gang actually is? How does abuse - psychological, physical and sexual - start and continue? And how is modern technology and culture fuelling this ever-growing situation?

We'll hear from some extremely brave and courageous young people who have decided to step forward from this frightening world because they want to ensure this problem isn't a silent one anymore. There's also a poem specially written for the programme by George the Poet.

Rap In Rio With Dj Semtex20160809

Away from the gleaming stadiums and corporate sponsorship, Rap in Rio shows the gritty flip-side of the Olympic host city through the lens of its rap and hip-hop culture. DJ Semtex explores a scene that has boomed in recent years, its MCs emerging from the city's troubled favelas to deliver increasingly political messages and party music to millions of fans.

We'll hear about what makes Rio hip-hop unique from OG Papo Reto. Rising stars Cartel MCs and Croc tell of life growing up in the favelas, and how this has shaped a new, politicised sub-genre that is distinct from the local 'funk' that since the 1980s has glorified drugs and violence. The Apple Woman tells of her battle to cut through the dominant machismo as a female artist, and British grime star Bugzy Malone samples the party scene to find out what all the fuss is about.

Rap's Biggest Beefs20160726

DJ Semtex guides you through 10 of the biggest beefs in rap history - the feuds and diss tracks that have changed the game!

Beefing isn't a recent addition in hip hop, but lately it does feel like things have reached a whole new level, with rappers playing out their high-profile clashes over social media and releasing outrageous diss tracks overnight. Whether it's Drake vs Meek Mill, or 50 Cent vs the world, when rappers beef, everyone talks about it.

As more and more artists get dragged into lyrical warfare, Semtex asks the question 'Is beefing good for the game?' and 'When does clashing cross the line?'. We hear words from the rappers involved, including Jay-Z, Ice Cube and Skepta, plus analysis from DJs and journalists close to the music.

Prepare to hear some of the nastiest lyrics and harshest put downs, as Semtex spins all of the biggest diss tracks to have emerged from these disputes.

Running With Grief20160329

In March 2015 Clara Amfo was in Paris, about to run the Paris half marathon, when she received a phone call to tell her that her father had died suddenly. She came straight home and was plunged into the chaos and emotional turmoil of bereavement: a turmoil that she had to hide from the millions of listeners to her new morning show on Radio 1.

As the anniversary of her father's death approaches, Clara explores the impact of losing a parent, on herself and others. Over 24,000 children are bereaved of a parent each year in Britain, yet it's a subject we are notoriously bad at dealing with and talking about.

Clara will talk through the first year without her dad with brutal honesty, the highs and lows, as well as setting out to meet other young people who've lost a parent to find out how it's affected their lives and what they wish others had and hadn't said to them.

Alongside all this, Clara decides to re-train for the Paris half-marathon, taking place the day before the anniversary of her dad's death. Will she finish unfinished business? And will re-training and completing the marathon she never got to run before give her something positive to take away from the most difficult year of her life?

We would like to say a huge thank you to STARS Bereavement Services and Oakleaf Bereavement Services for all of their help and support.

School Of Tupac20160719

One of the most explosive figures in rap, Tupac Shakur became as known for his outspokenness on social issues as he did for his music. It transformed him into a hip-hop icon.

Tupac was a passionate advocate for a different kind of education to the one he'd received and so, to mark the 20th anniversary of his untimely death, Charlie Sloth joins a group of teens and goes back to school. Except the subject isn't Maths or English, it's Tupac Shakur.

DJ Target is first up, taking on teaching duties to run us through the history of Tupac - from wide-eyed arts student to gangsta rap's most fearsome figure. A.Dot leads a class discussion on the philosophies of Tupac, using some of his most famous quotes to spark debate. Then journalist Kieran Yates illustrates how Tupac's personal politics are just as relevant today as they were on the day he died.

Charlie also speaks to UK rappers and die-hard Tupac fans, Yungen and Sneakbo, who talk about his influence on their own careers and how Tupac's legacy has endured years after his death.

Scott's Perfect Christmas Song20121217

Every December TV, radio and every shop in the UK churn out the same old Christmas songs from years ago.

They're no longer original, meaningful, or written with enough care to find yourself humming them on the beach in August. But Scott Mills has a dream to change all that and write a perfect Christmas song that will stand the test of time. Neither Stacy Solomon nor the cast of TOWIE managed to come up with anything original to sing last year - and if talent as good as that have problems, is there any hope for Scott?

Along the way he'll gather advice from legends such as Noddy Holder, three-times Christmas No.1 holders Mel C and Emma Bunton, plus any other popstar he can pester, to turn his dream of creating the perfect Christmas song into a reality.

With the help of Frisky & Mannish and Tim Minchin, we'll discover the secrets to writing a Christmas hit and follow Scott as he goes from initial idea to first radio play for his perfect Christmas song.

And, as a Christmas gift to the public, Scott will be offering the song as a free download via the Radio 1 website, so that you can decide yourself if it really is the perfect soundtrack to your festive season.

Can Scott write a Christmas song? Will he be able to sing? And will anyone actually play it? There are better odds of it snowing on Christmas Day, but that won't stop Scott's attempt to put original songwriting back into the heart of Christmas!

Second Time Lucky20150915

Some bands and artists make it big on their first attempt. But for most, there are dead ends, false starts and a whole load of lessons learned before success comes knocking.

So what happens between an act making music for fun for the first time, through to them getting chart success, being played on the radio or selling out tours?

For some, it's about finding a collaborator who unlocks something within them; for others it's about ditching one sound and deciding on another; for others it's about hitting a brick wall, and being determined to climb over it.

In Second Time Lucky, Alice Levine hears from John Newman, Foxes, Metronomy, Run The Jewels, Wolf Alice, All Time Low and Oritse - once hitting the heights with JLS, now carving a solo career with OWS - about trying, failing, learning, trying again, and succeeding.

Selling Out?20130715

Musicians and the commercial world have traditionally kept out of each other's way, but in the last few years artists have begun closely collaborating with companies and advertisers to promote brands. The latest high profile examples are Beyonce's multi-million dollar campaigns for Pepsi and H&M, but everyone in pop, rap and rock is at it: whether it's a product placement for Samsung in The Wanted's video; Professor Green being an ambassador for Puma and Relentless; or Rihanna's work creating a range of clothes for River Island.

Is 'branded content' a new opportunity for some exciting collaborations and creativity? Or, as artists increasingly name check brands and companies in their lyrics, will playing an album become more like listening to a commercial break? If a musician has a large fanbase, is that something they can now give advertisers access to, for a price?

In Selling Out? Greg James discovers why the industry is now much more accepting of commercial partnerships. Tinie Tempah's manager Dumi Oburota explains why not all associations with brands are for payment and Universal Music explain how technology has changed the relationship artists have with their fans and why collaborations are now much more acceptable.

We hear how, in the hip-hop world, a brand tie-in isn't always a sign of selling out, but of having made the grade, and our marketing expert reveals what makes a campaign like the one by mobile company O2 a success.

Not all relationships are good however; Peter Robinson of Popjustice picks out some bad examples of product placement from Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez. He also talks about uncovering a plan for a band that was a created purely as an advert for a product and looks at Alexandra Burke's work for Argos.

And Greg tries to find out which brands would be interested in working with him if he was to collaborate with a sponsor - and how much he could earn!

Six Stories Of Bombay Bicycle Club20141216

Why make one documentary about a band when you can make six? Shaking up the BBC Radio 1 Stories concept, this hour long programme features six mini documentaries about Bombay Bicycle Club, all devised and made in collaboration with the band themselves.

Each fronted by a different presenter or member of the band, they include a ten minute mix by singer Jack Steadman, pulling together all their influences - musical and otherwise. Long time supporter Huw Stephens sits the band down in the studio to discuss the anatomy of a track, finding out how their creations evolve from early demos into the final versions on the album. And the band introduce us to their most important collaborators, from guitarist Jamie MacColl's dad (a musician in his own right and half-brother of the late Kirsty MacColl), to singer Lucy Rose and producer Jim Abbiss.

Not only that, but we also have our own mini rock-doc as we follow the band preparing for one of the biggest gigs of their lives at London's Earl's Court, which rounds off an extraordinary year for Bombay Bicycle Club. A year in which they've had a number 1 selling album and been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

Plus Zane Lowe is given the chance to play the band some of their hilariously awkward early Radio 1 interviews as they discuss their reputation for being media-shy.

Last, but by no means least, we hand the reins over to the band's maverick keyboardist and video-maker Louis to create his own wild-card ten minute masterpiece for Radio 1. Anything could happen.

Stand Up For Hackney20120702

As part of Radio 1's Hackney Academy initiative, three young residents - Blessing, Bradley and Jonathan - have volunteered for a particularly daunting challenge: they will go from complete comedy novices, to fully-fledged stand-up comedians in just two weeks!

And what's more, they will have to perform their first ever gig infront of a packed crowd at London's legendary Hackney Empire theatre!

It's a huge call. But fortunately they won't be on their own. They'll each be joined by their very own professional comedian, who will mentor them throughout the fortnight.

These mentors are Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Josie Long; FHM Stand-Up Hero winner, Marlon Davis; and rapper-turned-comedian, Doc Brown.

Each of these professionals will help their students write their sets, teach them stand-up technique, point out the traps to avoid, and generally help them survive what will surely be the toughest challenge any of them have ever faced.

Will they cope? Or will they crumble? Whatever happens R1 Stories is there to track every step of their story from street to stage, as Blessing, Bradley and Jonathan discover that being funny can be a very serious business indeed.

Start Something - The Story Of South Wales Rock2010051020100517 (R1)

Bethan Elfyn finds out why South Wales has been at the heart of UK rock for the a decade.

As Radio One's Big Weekend decends on Wales for the biggest free party in Europe, the station's Welsh presenter Bethan Elfyn, from BBC Introducing, takes a look at the country's biggest musical export of the last decade: rock.

Heading into the heart of the South Wales Valleys towns of Merthyr, Pontypridd, and Bridgend, Bethan finds out why so many bands from Lostprophets to The Blackout to Kids in Glass Houses want to make such epic noise.

In their own words, this is the story of how Welsh rock took on the world. Like Zane Lowe said, ""There's something in the water!"

Staying Out20140630

Successful journalist, presenter and campaigner, Paris Lees, wants to discover why so many who have been caught up in crime can't find a way out.

In the process, Paris takes an odyssey through the world of crime and punishment...

Paris' own teenage years included drugs, prostitution and partying hard. Add to this the confusion of discovering her sexuality and gradually realising she was transgender, and it becomes clear that her formative years were anything but stable. At 16 she was convicted of committing a robbery and served a prison sentence. Like so many young people who leave prison, she swore she would never go back. But with almost three-quarters of young offenders being reconvicted within a year of release - the odds were stacked against her.

So how has she managed to come out the other side as one of the voices of her generation, when so many other young people can't seem to break the cycle? Staying Out asks: What does Paris have in common with other former prisoners who never went back inside? As a starting point, Paris meets others who have experienced that ultimate 'rock bottom': characters who have served prison sentences and come out the other side with varying degrees of success.

With already worryingly high youth reoffending rates on the rise, Radio 1 investigates why so many find 'staying out' so difficult.

Study Drugs20170418

Students across the UK are feeling the pressure - Deadlines looming, fees increasing, graduate jobs even harder to find. More and more are turning to what they hope will be a chemical solution. But it's not without risk.

Dev enters the ""grey market"" to try and get to the bottom of the study drug phenomenon. Are they really a safe and reliable answer? Or are students treating themselves like guinea pigs, unsure of the repercussions?

Usually reserved for those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Narcolepsy, students without these conditions are trying to get razor-sharp focus. But it's a double-edged sword, as students encounter side-effects from insomnia to nausea.

Second year Alecia has experience. From her American high school to University in Bristol, they've never been hard to find. The studying went well - she got into her first-choice university. But the anxiety, sleeplessness and frenzied tidying were an unwanted consequence.

For Jake, study drugs were a crutch in his hour of need. As his mental health deteriorated and he fell behind, they seemed like a reasonable option. After hours of research, he took the plunge, noting his change in mood and focus. But the headaches were a nightmare.

For rugby-loving Tom study drugs seemed like a pill-shaped answer - just not that big of a deal. But with doping illegal in most competitive sports, is it cheating to take a shortcut academically?

With many unsure of what they're actually taking, Dev tries to demystify the subject and look at the science. He'll meet Dr Ali, who takes him deep inside the brain to figure out what's really going on; and unveil the layers beneath the Study Drug allure.

Tempted By Teacher20130812

Groomed, abused and raped by my teacher. This is Ella's story, presented by Gemma Cairney.

Ella's teacher singled her out for attention and made her feel special at a vulnerable time in her life. By 15 she had been forced into an abusive sexual relationship with him.

Using her own voice, although not her real name, Ella openly admits that she had a schoolgirl crush on her teacher. She thought she was in love, but he exploited her feelings and naivety to manipulate, control and abuse her.

It was only in her twenties that Ella realised that what her teacher had done wasn't just wrong, it was criminal. Now he's behind bars for serious offences against her including rape.

Tempted By Teacher is a frank and disturbing depiction of grooming and abuse, where concerns were raised about a teenaged girl, but no action was taken.

Against the backdrop of Jeremy Forrest's conviction in June for abduction and sex offences against a 15 year-old girl, Ella looks at whether pupils are any safer in schools now than when her abuser was a teacher.

She meets students, teachers, child protection experts and teaching union representatives, with contributions from the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the Association of Teachers and Lecturers and the Department for Education. She explore issues of good and bad practice, and the challenges presented by social media.

Ella asks whether there is a case for better recruitment of teachers? Is support in place for innocent teachers who develop feelings for a pupil but don't know where to turn for help? Is there enough understanding of boundaries and the law?

And, with the benefit of hindsight, what would Ella say to the teenaged victim in the Jeremy Forrest case.

Ten Teens Who Changed The World20141021

Gemma Cairney celebrates the outstanding achievements of ten game changing teens from all over the world - from the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head because she stood up for education, to Nick D'Aloisio who signed a million pound deal on his 16th birthday after teaching himself to code aged twelve.

There are many different ways to change the world as Gemma discovers, meeting inspirational young people from all walks of life, all with unique passions and talents. The one thing they have in common is that they all made a big impression on the world before their 20th birthday.

We also hear from Clean Bandit, Eats Everything, Mistajam and Annie Mac about three different teens from times past who helped kick start whole new musical genres.

Along the way Gemma picks up some practical tips from the remarkable young people she meets and hears the reality of what it's like to take on such huge responsibility at such a young age.

The Amen Break20110606

There are loads websites, databases and facebook groups devoted to the subject, for some reason Djs and producers are TOTALLY obsessed by it.

The Future Of Contraception20161122

Radio 1 and 1Xtra investigates the future of contraception. This summer a study of over a million women found that those on the pill were more likely to suffer from depression. The research led to an outpouring of anecdotes across the news outlets and social media about the unwanted side effects from hormonal contraception; and a feeling that women don't want to suffer in silence any more.

In this programme, presenters Dev and Yasmin investigate the future of contraception. They explore what the alternatives are to the pill (did you know there are 15 types of contraception currently available in the UK?), and whether all the talk of a male pill is going to lead to a contraceptive revolution in the next few years.

Has the time really come for guys to step up and take responsibility for birth control?

The Hate Debate20130325

As an equality campaigner and someone who's been on the receiving end far too often, Paris Lees is passionate about challenging all forms of prejudice. Yet despite the fact she really should know better, Paris freely admits that she definitely has her own prejudices.

And if she had to bet, she thinks you probably have your own too. The Hate Debate is a show about being open and honest about Prejudice; discussing it, trying to understand it and ultimately, challenging it.

Over the last six months Paris has been travelling around the UK trying to encourage this debate. Talking to people about the prejudice they've experienced, the prejudices they're prepared to admit to and debating what can be done to tackle these irrational beliefs.

The Hate Debate contains a frank and honest debate about issues relating to the use of language, sexuality, weight and appearance, relationships, race and religion. And sees Paris finally confront some of the prejudiced thoughts she has about Muslim women who cover up for their religion.

The Next Big Thing20110822

Is rock dead? In the first week of 2011 there were only 3 guitar bands in the UK's top 75. And one of them was Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing'.

For some this was a sign that rock music was dead. For us it was a reason to find three of the hottest new rock bands around and find out what it's like for a group trying to make an impact on the scene today.

Presented by Daniel P Carter, this programme follows We Are The Ocean, Lower Than Atlantis & Twin Atlantic over six months.

From on-stage injuries and video shoot disasters to triumphant headline shows and eagerly-awaited album releases, this is an access-all-areas look at three bands who are proving that rock in the UK is as healthy as it's ever been.

The Perfect Football Single20140609

At every major football tournament there's always a raft of new football songs, attempting to reach the top of the charts through the back of the terraces. Unfortunately, most of them aren't very good.

Scott Mills is going to try and put a stop to all that, as he attempts to make the best football single of all time, just in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He'll look at what songs like Three Lions, World In Motion and Vindaloo did right, and the elements he needs to make it a hit.

He'll need some help along the way though - some musical talent to make it sound half decent, a comedian or two who'll make it funny, plus his mates from 5 Live and Match Of The Day to help him separate his indirect free kicks from his penalty shoot-outs.

From Scott's imagination to the recording studio and beyond, we'll follow the journey of what might just be the perfect football single.

The Sharing Generation20140902

BBC Radio 1's Dev meets the current generation of digitally literate young people who are redefining the traditional concept of owning things. He dives into the UK's rapidly growing sharing economy - estimated to be worth more than £22.4 billion - looking at how a generation raised on the motto 'copy, paste, share' are using those skills to access whatever they need using smartphones and the internet.

From Freecycle to Ebay, Air BnB to Zipcar, you've probably encountered the sharing economy in one of its many forms already. Lily Cole, Ed Sheeran, Gemma Cairney and Elton John's suit all have sharing in common, so spend a day in Dev's world as he attempts to borrow, swap and share his way through 24 hours: swishing for clothes, borrowing a canine companion, picking up dinner from the most local takeaway imaginable and trying out couchsurfing.

Dev finds out if this is a short-term trend in response to the difficult economy, or the start of a new sense of community and connection, providing unique experiences with real people rather than faceless brands.

The Story Of Pregnancy20130708

From the moment a woman finds out she's pregnant her world changes forever. We hear from teenagers and young women who are going through pregnancy at the moment, or who have just had babies. From having to tell their parents that they're expecting, to suffering debilitating pregnancy sickness, from the aches, pains and exhaustion through to the moment their babies arrive, we hear how they deal with the many challenges that come with pregnancy.

We meet 19 year old Janie, whose pregnancy turned her life around; and 16 year old Harriet, whose strict catholic school forced her to hide her bump.

Mums to be also share the magic moments that pregnancy brings - from hearing their baby's heartbeat for the first time, to feeling their baby kick. Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac shares the emotional moment she first saw her baby on the scan; and former Atomic Kitten Jenny Frost tells of the shock she had when she found out she was expecting twins.

And we hear the stories of the midwives who guide hundreds of women through the ups and downs of pregnancy.

The Story Of Professor Green2011102420111228 (R1)

Some call him Pro, others call him Green, his birth certificate says Stephen Paul Manderson - only one thing is for sure, everybody's talking about Professor Green. But just how did he become the No. 1 breakthrough UK rapper?

Radio 1 and Mistajam catch up with the man of the moment for an in-depth interview about his unstoppable rise from underground MC to major chart success. We start right at the beginning, from the very first time he picked up a mic and how his reign as champion battle rapper at the Jump Off launched his career. We also ask whether being signed to The Beats, the label owned by Mike Skinner of The Streets, was a blessing or a curse.

We explore the highs and lows which gave Pro the drive and ambition to get to where he is today; look back to his time as a Radio 1 presenter in the In New DJs We Trust slot; and recall the moment Lily Allen got in contact, which lead to them recording their incredible collaboration of Just Be Good To Green. Stephen also opens up and talks about how losing his father and his own near-fatal attack have influenced his music.

With additional interviews from collaborators including Example, Labrinth, Emile Sandé, Stanza from True Tiger and Team Green members, Cores and DJ IQ, this is Radio 1's Story of Professor Green.

The Story Of Rudimental2015051920150623 (R1)

MistaJam finds out how Rudimental have changed the face of British music.

Ahead of their performance at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Norwich, Mistajam heads to East London to find out whether Rudimental are responsible for changing the face of British music.

Sitting down with Leon, Kesi, Piers and Amir in the very studio where the group have been putting the final touches to their hugely anticipated second album, Mistajam discovers where the boys took their influences from, how they merged underground club music genres with pop and electronic music, and created a sound that has arguably broken the mould for UK music.

In an age when it's no longer possible to define music by the colour of someone's skin, the band talk about growing up with the sounds of soul and funk, and variously getting into garage, grime and hip hop. They explain how the multi-culturalism of East London shaped their open attitude to musical genres and why going to youth clubs, having Heartless Crew visit their school, and working as mentors influenced their ideology, giving them the drive to provide a platform for others. This platform has helped kickstart the careers of John Newman and Ella Eyre, and is likely do the same for a new set of unknown singers on the new album, as the band reveal.

Helping to tell the story are Leon's mum Beverley, and Piers' parents Percy and Dot...revealing such gems as how Leon nearly ended up a child acting star, not a musician, and the time Piers was going to be a tortoise breeder! We also hear from Amir's childhood friend and the leader of his youthgroup, and artist MNEK drops by from the studio next door, where he too met the group and became part of what is now the Rudimental family.

The Story Of Sam Smith20141209

Zane Lowe catches up with Sam Smith at the end of an amazing year for the BBC's Sound Of 2014 winner.

It's almost hard to believe now, but when Sam was announced as the Sound Of winner in January, he was still relatively unknown.

Despite success with both Naughty Boy's 'La La La' and Disclosure's 'Latch' he'd yet to establish himself as a solo artist. Fast forward to December though and he's now one of the world's best selling artists, with success on a scale no-one would have dared to predict.

With the help of Sam's friends and collaborators, Zane Lowe breaks down the story so far for Sam.

It's a chance to dig a little deeper into his success over the last year and all of the experiences that got him there.

The Story Of The 197520140428

The 1975 are a British band on a meteoric rise. Two years ago they were still playing gigs where getting 50 people along and a free crate of beer was a triumph. Now they have a UK number 1 album, sold-out shows around the world and share stadium stages with the likes of Muse and The Rolling Stones. They have a very passionate and knowledgeable fan base and a unique sound which fuses a traditional band line-up (drums, bass, guitar and vocals) with a programming laptop-based song writing method and influences as diverse as Blink 182 and Boyz II Men.

Since their breakthrough, front man Matthew Healy has become the band's main spokesman, doing nearly all of their media interviews to date. In this Radio 1 Story, for the first time, all four members of the band give their viewpoint on The 1975's career. From meeting at school as 13 and 14 year olds, to playing their first gigs, evolving their sound and song writing, forming their identity as The 1975, getting their first air play on Radio 1... and then adjusting to a whole load of success.

To make this programme, Matthew, Adam, Ross and George agreed to be interviewed individually - each focussing on a section of the band's history - making this documentary a unique snapshot of The 1975 and an essential listen.

The Travelling Man20120604

For London born and Irish raised Maverick Sabre, home is where he finds a beat and a rhyme. Exclusively for BBC Radio 1, he's returning to his Hackney roots to meet and collaborate with some of the young, Irish travellers now living in the borough. Maverick Sabre's debut mixtape was called the Travelling Man: this is his and their story.

At four years old Michael Stafford left Hackney with his family for a small town in Wexford, Ireland, where he made friends with travellers living nearby. Now, in a unique opportunity to gain access to an often isolated community, Maverick will use music to get to know the young travellers living in Hackney and give them the opportunity to tell their stories in their own words.

Living on legal sites all over Hackney, their homes are within the shadow of the Olympic Stadium and were displaced by its construction. In a few weeks' time, Maverick will be performing on the Marshes for BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, which is happening, literally, in their back garden.

For this Radio 1 Story we'll hear Maverick walk the streets of his home borough and across the marshes to meet the young travellers for the first time - giving voice to this often marginalised part of UK society. Big Fat Gypsy Weddings this ain't.

The Truth About Internships20121029

With high levels of unemployment among 16-24 year olds and many facing tuition fee debt once they finish university, bagging the job you want can be really hard. Getting a foot on the career ladder early is a way of working towards a dream job in the future but - as more and more young people are discovering - starting out in the working world is virtually impossible without experience. That's where the internship comes in.

In the last few years internships have become an increasingly popular way for people to gain that all-important experience in the industry or the company of their dreams - and perhaps even gain full-time employment. But it's not that simple. Internships can vary depending on which company you go to and where you live; they can be paid or unpaid; and can last anything from a week to a year. So, it's very important to be clued up before taking on a placement.

Newsbeat's Tina Daheley hears from interns and employers to find out what it takes to bag a worthwhile internship and how to know when you're being ripped off. Speaking to Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw and Adam Deacon, Tina reveals how getting experience early and persevering can lead to top jobs in industries you might not expect. Tracking the interning journey of Radio 1 listeners and speaking to campaigners and big bosses, Tina finds out what interns' rights are, what can aid success and the real truth about internships.

Radio 1 Stories hears from young people who were trafficked and enslaved in the U.K. These people bravely speak out against their former slave owners and traffickers to tell their stories. Presented by Radio 1's Dev.

We may have thought the U.K. abolished slavery but it is still happening in brothels, farms, construction sites, car washers, nail bars and even on your street. Victims are usually vulnerable individuals, often captured when they’re young and may never know a life of freedom.

Slaves can be controlled on an international scale by their traffickers and slave holders. And yet this crime is hidden from the police and the public. We will hear what really goes on in this criminal underworld operating in the U.K. as former slaves speak out for the first time.

The Uk's Newest Sound20171029

It's the UK's newest sound... fusing UK MCs, West African melodies and dancehall riddims.

Some call it Afro-Bashment, some call it Afro-Swing, some call it UK Afrobeats.

It doesn't have a single name yet, but with millions of views online, regular radio rotation and a Top 20 hit this summer alone, there's a new UK sound that's gone from underground to mainstream in astonishing time.

In a move away from the 140bpm tempo and intensity of grime, a new crop of artists including Tion Wayne, Eugy, Afro B and Abracadabra combine influences from UK artists like Sneakbo and Donae'o, West African melodies and dancehall riddims.

With J Hus being nominated for a Mercury Award and major label backing for Kojo Funds, Yxng Bane and Lotto Boyzz, will we look back on 2017 as a tipping point for this sound, or is it just a wave approaching its peak?

We bring together P Montana, Team Salut and GA, some of the scene's pioneering taste-makers to tell the story and look at the future of a sound that's at once distinctly UK, but with worldwide appeal.

The World Of Fka Twigs20150324

27 year old Tahliah Barnett, otherwise known as FKA Twigs, has gone from music video backing dancer for the likes of Jessie J to Mercury and Brit-nominated artist in what seems like a very short amount of time. But in fact her journey to this point started many years ago, taking her from rural Gloucestershire to London to the USA and back to London via punk, dance and cabaret.

In this programme Zane Lowe sits down with Twigs to find out what really goes on in her world. He finds out how this seemingly underground artist has ended up being playlisted on Radio 1 and reaching the mainstream with a sound that can in no way be described as easy. As she puts it ""I'm an underground artist moonlighting as a pop star"".

We also hear from some of Twigs' collaborators - people that she trusts and who have helped to create her unique world of music, dance and visuals. They include her choreographer and old friend Aaron Sillis and her bandmates Sian and Tic. And we also pay a visit to krump crew Wet Wipez who have worked with Twigs for years, feature in her videos and stage shows, and who have helped raise the profile, along with Twigs, of krump in the UK.

Sit back and enjoy an atmospheric ride as we take you inside the world of FKA Twigs.

Twitfalls: Social Media Gets Nasty20130218

Social networking is landing more and more young people in trouble - from cyber bullying to prison sentences.

In Twitfalls, keen tweeter and Radio 1 presenter Annie Mac explores several high profile cases, including Paul Chambers - who was found guilty of sending a menacing tweet threatening to blow up an airport. He claimed it

wasn't a serious threat and later won his appeal.

Annie also hears about the prevalence of racist and homophobic comments and she eavesdrops on the work of Child Line, which is trying to tackle an increase in bullying via social networks.

Young people from all over the country talk about how often they use social media, how it affects their lives, social networking etiquette - and what they feel they can and cannot say.

And Annie shares her own experiences of social media - both good and bad - from courting over Facebook, to the potential dangers of having half a million followers on Twitter. Put your next post on hold until you've heard this Story...

We revisit the soldiers featured in 2002's Radio 1 documentary Tour of Duty.

Nihal presents Veterans for BBC Radio 1 Stories.

Many young people in the UK can't remember a time when we weren't fighting in the middle-east.

And the fight has been going on so long, young men and women who

joined up at the start of the war as teenagers are now veterans by the age of 25...

...and looking to establish new lives.

The programme takes a look at how young soldiers have been forced to grow up quickly and how their experiences at war have affected them.

Those who've left the army talk about how they have coped returning to civilian life and how, after going to war, they now view the world differently.

This documentary hears from young British soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan since British troops took part in the invasion of Afghanistan to topple the Taliban government and to seek out Al Qaeda following 9/11.

Volunteer Town2015122020151222 (R1)

#1MillionHours is a Radio 1 and 1Xtra volunteering campaign aiming to motivate listeners across the UK to pledge one million volunteer hours over the next 12 months. Could one small town be persuaded to hit the target all by themselves? Chris Stark investigates.

To hit a million hours we would need 116 people to commit their entire year, without sleeping, a total of 8760 hours each. Ooorrrr, ever so slightly more realistic, 10,000 people to give up just a couple of hours a week, equivalent to 100 hours across the year - 1,000,000 in total.

In this show for Radio 1 and 1Xtra's Stories, Chris Stark heads to the amazing town of Corby in the East Midlands to investigate just how many people it's possible to sign up to the initiative in 48 hours. His first aim is to explore all the volunteer opportunities that exist in the town: charity shops, sports clubs, health care, environment, etc and meet the awesome people already giving their time. Then he takes to the streets, shopping centres and clubs of Corby to persuade people to pledge their time to the campaign.

His first aim is to explore all the volunteer opportunities that exist in the town: charity shops, sports clubs, health care, environment, etc and meet the awesome people already giving their time. Then he takes to the streets, shopping centres and clubs of Corby to persuade people to pledge their time to the campaign.

What The &%@!? - Swearing In Music20130408

When, in September 2012, Kanye West asked via Twitter if the word 'B****' is acceptable, it was a very public display of one of the biggest artists in the world trying to understand the boundaries of language in music.

Presented by Jameela Jamil, In 'What the &%@*!?' we look at what B**** and other 'swear words' mean to popular music today. We talk to established artists like Example as well as breaking acts like Mikill Pane, K Koke, L Marshall, SOAK and Lady Leshurr to find out how much swearing matters to them and when they feel certain words can and can't be used.

We take you through the history of swearing in music - from Prodigy's 'Smack My B**** Up' and Cee-Lo Green's 'F-You', to Azealia Banks' '212'.

With words like 'B****' becoming an issue for artists like Kanye and Lupe Fiasco, but not for others, we ask why this might be the case? When we're exposed to an uncensored internet do these words still have the power to shock?

The management at Radio 1 tell us about the station's relationship with swearing and how Radio 1 deals with those little words for those listeners they may offended by them. We also hear from the founder of 'B**** Magazine', and try to find out whether it is better to re-claim words like 'B****' for something positive, or if that's even possible at all.

Swearing can be used to offend, to aid expression and for no reason at all. 'What the &%@*!?' is an honest portrayal of why and how artists use swearing in 2013 and what young people think of it.

This programme will obviously contain very strong language - if you're easily offended please turn off now.

What The F: The Story Of Feminism And Pop20140310

Gemma Cairney asks what feminism means today and questions whether our super sexed-up female stars are empowered or exploited?

Miley says she's one of the biggest, Lily Allen's comeback was inspired by it, uber feminist and bestselling writer Caitlin Moran has been named one of the most influential people on Twitter. Everybody is talking about it. But what does the word 'feminism' really mean?

'F word' campaigns and discussions are all over the internet, newspapers and magazines, and the debates rage on. For both young men and women, the issues around male and female equality can be hard to navigate and it's sometimes difficult to see the relevance of what can feel like an outdated word - in a survey by Netmums last year, over half of mums with teenage daughters (51%) said their child was not aware of the feminist movement. Last year, however, the discussion exploded in pop music, with opinions swirling around Miley, Beyonce and other female stars and their right to get naked, flaunt their sexuality and generally misbehave.

Gemma investigates the relationship between feminism and pop - she talks to stars including Professor Green, Nina Nesbitt, Lauren Mayberry and Jack Harries, asking what the word means to them; and hears from performance artist and activist Byrony Kimmings. She lifts the lid on the issues that really matter when it comes to F for Feminism...

Where Are The Women In Music?20160322

Can women be equally as successful as men in the music industry? BBC Radio 1Xtra recently asked this very question when they hosted a debate at the Women of the World Festival (WOW) in London.

In this programme, Radio 1 presenter and international DJ Annie Mac sits down with singer, lyricist and guitarist from the band Wolf Alice, Ellie Rowsell, to listen to the debate and to discuss it on their own terms.

With only 16% of artists registered with PRS (the music copyright, royalties and licensing society) being female, and 86% of festival line-ups last year being made up of male artists, there are clearly questions to ask.

Do women have to be sexualised to make it? Is it all about confidence? And what is stopping more women joining the music industry, both on stage and behind the scenes?

White Men In Capes20150707

Superman, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Batman all have 3 things in common: they're very successful comic book characters; they've all been made in to movies; AND they are all white men.

Where are the Latino superheroes?

Why Make Music?20120116

Musicians are often asked how they make music - but rarely asked why? In this one hour documentary, musician and Radio 1 Rock Show presenter Daniel P Carter tries to find out the answer, or indeed, as it turn out, the answers.

He starts off with hardcore band Gallows, rehearsing down at Maida Vale, before heading out of the mosh pit to meet a wide variety of musicians - from up and coming grime MC Dot Rotten to The Drums - to find out why they do what they do.

Daniel asks whether or not people make music because they're in the right place at the right time, like being in Seattle when grunge kicked off, or being young in London at the start of punk. We hear from Wade McNeil (Gallows) on how hardcore band Razor Eater inspired him; and Roll Deep's DJ Target talks about growing up with the roots of grime in Bow, East London.

He quizzes Toddla T, J Davey, The Drums, meets journalist Miranda Sawyer and listens as head music therapist from The Barchester Nordoff Robbins Initiative, Stuart Woods, explains why music transforms lives.

Next we meet a range of artists from Emmy The Great to Wild Beasts to find out why they make music, before heading down to south London music project Felix's School of Rock to meet young teenagers who are just starting out.

Scientist Dr Harry Witchel drops by to explain why humans have such a powerful relationship with music and Dot Rotten explains how making music had a powerful impact on his life.

Daniel then turns his attention to two musicians with a purpose: gospel rapper Guvna B who makes music because of his faith; and Riz MC who explains that socially conscious music is having a renaissance. And finally, there's a look into the future to find out how technology is changing the way people start making music.

Adele, a former competitive bodybuilder, has spent 30 days following a strict diet and fitness regime in a bid to discover what it takes to become a superwoman.

Is this an empowering method for young women to take control of their bodies, or merely another fitness fad, causing women to question their natural body image?
