            Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is deeply divided over immigration. The National Front, a far right and fascist political party, is gaining strength as politicians like Enoch Powell push a xenophobic agenda. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, music... photographer Red Saunders writes a letter to the music press, calling for rock to be a force against racism. NME, Melody Maker, and Sounds all publish the letter. Flooded with responses, Red discovers many share his views. Teaming up with like-minded creatives Roger Huddle, Kate Webb, Syd Shelton and Australian graphic designer Ruth Gregory, the team bands together to create Rock Against Racism (RAR) and a fanzine, Temporary Hoarding. Speaking directly to the youth, Temporary Hoarding reports stories and issues that the mainstream British media ignores, like immigration, the Catholic side of the Northern Ireland conflict, and the polices controversial suspected persons (sus) powers. They give a voice to the voiceless. The National Front begins to strike back, committing acts of violence against RAR supporters and petrol-bombing their HQ. Despite this, RAR spreads virally across the UK and into Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement. The Clash, Steel Pulse, Tom Robinson and other top bands of the day jump on board. White Riot is a moment in time when music changed the world. When a generation challenged the status quo. Its Woodstock meets the March on Washington, punk-style.

            This feature-length special charts the rise of a cultural phenomenon that came to define a generation: MTV. What started during the nascent days of cable television as a scrappy, playful music video line-up, rapidly evolved into a reflection of American youth culture. As MTV came... of age, the network pushed the boundaries of art, sex, gender and race, while cementing its image to celebrity. I Want My MTV weaves together exclusive interviews with the networks founders and VJs, journalists and artists - including Sting, Pat Benatar, Billy Idol, Annie Lennox, Darryl DMC McDaniels and more - along with rarely seen archival footage and outtakes, to paint a fun, fascinating picture of a music channel that would influence the global media landscape for decades to come.
