No trailer that I coud find on Channel 4's website unfortunately; or it could be that it's only available for UK audiences; but here are the details... (at the bottom of this post, you'll find the first 3 1/2 minutes of 2011's How Hip Hop Changed The World, whose success influenced the production of this upcoming 2-hour doc, How Clubbing Changed the World. It may be a glimpse at what to expect with this sequel).

No trailer that I coud find on Channel 4's website unfortunately; or it could be that it's only available for UK audiences; but here are the details... (at the bottom of this post, you'll find the first 3 1/2 minutes of 2011's How Hip Hop Changed The World, whose success influenced the production of this upcoming 2-hour doc, How Clubbing Changed the World. It may be a glimpse at what to expect with this sequel).

Following the success of 2011's How Hip Hop Changed The World and featuring some of the biggest names in dance music, actor and international DJ Idris Elba returns to count down the defining moments of the greatest cultural phenomenon of our generation in Idris Elba's How Clubbing Changed the World.

Twenty-five years since the birth of Rave, a new generation of British DJs and producers are at the forefront of a global musical revolution. From Trance to Dubstep, the sound of British producers has now become the most sought after commodity for the biggest popstars on the planet.

Reaching far beyond the sweaty dance floors of the Hacienda and the Ministry of Sound, this programme reveals how British night clubbing transformed our nation and was exported globally to influence societies across the world.

With personal insights and club-raising anecdotes from David Guetta, Armand van Helden, Paul Oakenfold, Will I Am, Nile Rodgers, Goldie, Pete Tong, Katy B, Skream and former Home Secretary Michael Howard, amongst many more, this entertaining and thought-provoking two-hour film celebrates the British success story that has conquered the world.

From sun-kissed holidays on the party island of Ibiza to the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, and illegal warehouse raves to Labour's 1992 adoption of D Ream's Things Can Only Get Better, clubbing has touched everyone's life whether they know it or not. This is an international story, going beyond the music to look at everything from clubbing's influence on real estate, to drug use, fashion, politics and the drinks industry.

How Clubbing Changed the World explores how clubbing went from a counter cultural movement that defined a generation to a multi-billion pound business whilst revealing how 25 years on Great Britain is still king of the underground.
