Guy Garvey: From The Vaults on Sky Arts

Lime Pictures’ non-scripted label Wise Owl Films has landed its first Sky Arts commission with the six-part music documentary series, Guy Garvey: From The Vaults as part of Sky Arts move to free-to-air later this month.

Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has curated six hours of his favourite artistes and songs from the Seventies and Eighties, with the series uncovering previously unseen performances by rock music icons like Kate Bush. The documentaries will also unearth studio performances, out-takes and revealing interviews that have stayed hidden on the shelves for decades. The series will air on 18th September at 9pm on Sky Arts and NOW TV, as part of a raft of exciting, absorbing and accessible programming for the newly free to air channel.

The series is centred around shows which were made by ITV companies around the country – from Tony Wilson and Granada TV’s So It Goes to Tyne Tees’ ground-breaking Channel 4 series The Tube and LWT’s The London Weekend Show – chronicling not just changing musical tastes but evolution in the UK’s social and cultural history too. The series travels from Punk and New Wave to the birth of ‘Madchester’.

With each episode concentrating on a different 12 months in rock history, Guy Garvey gives his personal take on the tracks from that year, as we hear about the songs and artistes from across many musical genres who have inspired his own song-writing career.

Guy Garvey says: “Imagine me running around the warehouse from the end scene in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’. In one box an early interview with The Smiths, in another box unseen footage of Kate Bush and then a box containing Tony Wilson’s amazing wardrobe. I was as giddy as a kipper making this series.”

Guy Garvey: From The Vaults embodies Sky Arts’ mission to bring art and culture alive for everyone, champion artistic talent and drive participation in the arts nationwide. The Sky original series will air on Sky Arts when the channel becomes free for everyone across the UK to watch on Freeview and Freesat. It will also be available on streaming service NOW TV.

Wise Owl Films’ Creative Director and Executive Producer Mark Robinson comments: “We wanted to dig deep into the archive to uncover some real buried treasure for Guy to enjoy – clips from artistes we knew he loved, but clips that we also believed he would never have seen before.

“It’s felt like we’ve been compiling an alternative history of rock, as seen on British TV – with some performances that haven’t been seen in decades, and others which hit the cutting room floor and never made it to TV. It’s been a joy and a privilege being part of a production team setting eyes on these for the first time in 40 or 50 years”.

Sky Arts, the UK’s only channel dedicated to arts and culture, will be made available to everyone on 17th September as it joins Freeview on channel number 11. The prominent channel position signals Sky Arts renewed ambition to bring more of the arts to more people as a free service. Sky Arts will also be available on Freesat on channel number 147.

Guy Garvey: From The Vaults is a 6 x 60 minute documentary series for Sky Arts. Commissioned by Phil Edgar Jones for Sky Arts, produced by Kerry Allison, and executive produced by Mark Robinson for Wise Owl Films.

Kerry Allison and Mark Robinson have previously collaborated on music history shows including ITV’s The Nation’s Favourite…brand which told the stories behind the songs of artistes including Elvis, The Beatles, Elton John and The Carpenters.
