"S.O.U.L. – Sounds Of Underground London" is a multi-part series examining England's prominent youth culture scenes and the music and fashion that surrounded them. The series celebrated 50 years of English youth culture.

THE SOUL BOY GENERATION: The Soul Patrol (episode 5)
The history of the Soul Boy movement is chronicled through interviews with the scene's DJs, artists and fans. In the 70s teenage race mixing was a rarity. Their music, culture and clubs were mostly separate. But a group of black and white kids from London's suburbs discovered American soul music and became known as the Soul Boys. The music blended fast danceable beats with brass sections and jazzy base lines. Interviews include: Chris Hill the originator of the soul boy scene, DJ Tony Monson, DJ Terry Jones, DJ Robbie Vincent, Edward Amoo "The Real Thing" and many others.

THE MOD REVIVAL GENERATION: Time For Action (episode 6)
The history of the Mod Revival movement is chronicled through interviews with the scene's DJs, artists and fans. By late 1978 a new generation of teenagers had become bored with the punk rock movement. Some say Paul Weller and The Jam single-handedly reignited the mod movement. The double LP Quadrophenia and later the film, cemented the look and vibe of the mod revival. Interviews include: John Entwistle (The Who), Buddy Ascot (The Chords), Gary Crowley, Jeff Shadbolt (The Purple Hearts), Eddie Piller (record producer), Franc Roddam (Director, Quadrophenia) and many others.

THE RARE GROOVE GENERATION: Get On The Good Foot (episode 7)
The history of the Rare Groove movement is chronicled through interviews with the scene's DJs, artists and fans. Rare Groove stared in the early 1980s at warehouse parties that played rare and obscure American soul and funk records. Pirate radio stations, most famously "Kiss FM," played a game of cat and mouse to avoid being arrested by the authorities while they spun rare soul records. Interviews include: Tony Farsides (journalist), DJ Roy the Roach, Deve Henley (Pressure Drop), DJ Judge Jules, Fraser Cooke (fashion designer), and many others. Note: Unfortunately this episode goes to black and white and has some video interference for several minutes.

THE ACID JAZZ GENERATION: Thelonious Monk and Melodious Funk (episode 8)
The history of the Acid Jazz movement is chronicled through interviews with the scene's DJs, artists and fans. Acid Jazz was a product of the mid-late 1980s. The music was hard and fast; 1960s Blue Note along side frantic Latin instrumentals. The crowds were multi-racial and the dances were obsessive. The drug "ecstasy" was initially a big part of the scene. Interviews include: James Taylor (The James Taylor Quartet), DJ Patrick Forge, Chris Sullivan (journalist), Eddie Piller (Co-Founder Acid Jazz Records), DJ Chris Bangs, Simon Bartholomew (The Brand New Heavies), Mark Powell (Fashion Designer) and many others.
