A young radio producer in Afghanistan is given an impossible task: to create a brand new, revolutionary talent show in just two months.

"Music connects people the world over, even when we do not speak the same language. And I wanted specifically to look at how the audience is part of the event. It isn't just the musician making the occasion, but the social connection they have with the people who are watching and listening as well. London may be a long way from Afghanistan, but in some ways it is not. We can all appreciate song and dance, and the skill of performers and good work, and it was a pleasure to make this art and to consider and join in with the audience's delight." — Alison Sampson
