Nile Rodgers is a musical legend with a legacy that lasts decades. Now, BBC Four is going to pay homage to the disco artist with a new four-part documentary series, which will air in April.

Sister Sledge, Duran Duran and Nile will all be interviewed in the series, which will look back at how the producer and guitar-extraordinaire shaped the musical landscape and inspired artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna through collaboration.

"This series' attention to detail is comprehensive, we looked back through the decades with real curiosity, picking out moments and actions that seemed frivolous at the time, but had a huge impact on the music we made," Rodgers says.
