This episode is worth watching just for Tony Visconti's construction of David Bowie's Heroes that Visconti produced.
A wonderfully informative masterclass and I never realised how complex the structure of the song was.
Melody Makers looks at the producers who put the songs together. Nile Rodgers talks about meeting Mark Ronson when he was a kid and being impressed with his musical production abilities then.
Another producer ruefully commentated how these days he sees whizz kids with a laptop going away for twenty minutes and coming back with a production knocked off without any sweat at all. However the whizz kids may lack that inspirational touch of a Visconti.
