Soul Nation[17/06/2003] (2003)

Film details


Trevor Nelson explores how British youth first fell in love with R&B and how it was kept alive during the 1970s with the Northern soul scene, a precursor of the 1990s acid house rave scene. Trevor checks out various Northern shrines (including the site of the legendary Wigan Casino) and meets the characters who are still dancing on. He also meets various stars that graduated from this world, including DJ Norman Jay and singers India Irie and Leee John.
