Absolute Radio starts [email protected], a four-part exclusive series celebrating 40 years of U2, on the air tonight (Sunday).

[email protected] is the biggest ever documentary commission made at the national station, created in conjunction with TBI Media.

Absolute Radio Content Director Paul Sylvester said: “Absolute Radio is proud to lead the commercial radio industry in commissioning and creating original content through landmark documentary series’. Working with production companies like TBI Media allows us to partner with some of the best talents in our industry, bringing them into our award-winning team of producers and presenters.”

TBI’s involvement marks a growing trend for the Absolute Radio brand which continues to maximise content streams by commissioning and collaborating with independent production companies.

The series is narrated by Irish film, television and stage actor Andrew Scott, best known for his portrayal of Jim Moriaty in the BBC series Sherlock and Max Denbigh in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre.

[email protected] centres on featured interviews with those who know the band best, telling the story of how four boys from Dublin changed music forever. Contributors include former manager Paul McGuinness; DJ Dave Fanning, the man credited with giving the band their first break and Steve Lilywhite who produced U2’s first three albums.

The first installment of the four-part [email protected] can be heard on Sunday 13th November at 8pm on Absolute Radio.
