“Our aim for the iPlayer documentary was to really showcase the bands’ exhilarating journey. From grassroots gigs through to becoming an arena headlining artist. And also just how instrumental the BBC Music Introducing platform was throughout their rise”
– Nick Jekyll, Creative Director
This most recent commissioning sits alongside a year of collaboration with BBC Music Introducing (Reading, Leeds, Radio 1 Big weekend & Glastonbury) as well as building on the ever-growing list of music-based successes (BMGPM, pre-festival promotional activity for leading surf festival Boardmasters and the ‘History of Ministry of Sound’ documentary currently opening #theannualclassical tour across the UK.)
“I’m super excited for the release of the documentary. They’re a cracking band, selling out arenas all over the world. It was great chatting with them to find out the key moments on #therise to the top.” –
– Nicky Cook, Head of Video
The short documentary showcases “The Rise” of Catfish and the Bottlemen and celebrates 10-years since their first upload to the BBC Music Introducing platform. It is set to be released across the UK and Northern Ireland on BBC iPlayer this week.
“I’m really hoping our documentary with the BBC will inspire other bands at the beginning of their journey.” –
