You might not see much of a connection between the gravelly voiced male soul singers of the 1960s and the all-too-whiny voices of today – but the connection exists, and the route between the two is absolutely intriguing. Soul music is one of the most wide-ranging genres in terms of its influences, having come at a time when all the rules for music were being rewritten, and this documentary on BBC Four spells out the links in a way that will leave you hearing those tunes in an entirely different way.

If you're in for the night, this is a documentary you need to check out – and we'll leave you with this video to get you in the mood.

Kings of Soul, BBC Four, 11.30pm
