Behind The Velvet Rope - Studio 54 Uncovered

Studio 54 Revisited

Boy George looks back on the most decadent disco in history: Studio 54, which opened its doors 30 years ago this April.

Forget punk, disco music is the most influential, popular and lasting musical phenomenon from 30 years ago and Studio 54 became a symbol of that era, hugely popular yet short lived, democratic yet elitist, hedonistic yet self destructive.

It was the world's first super club, the first night spot to become a household name and the spawning ground of today's celebrity culture.

Featuring interviews with socialite Carmen D'Alessio, Studio DJ Nicky Siano, Nile Rodgers from Chic, roller skating drag queen Rollerena and bartenders and dancers.
