A new three-part documentary series from the production companies of Idris and Sabrina Elba is set to dig further into the issue. Paid in Full: The Battle for Payback has been co-commissioned by the BBC in the UK and CBC in Canada. "This is a story that touches all of us. It’s about the people who created the soundtracks of our lives in popular music and the pain of their exploitation," said Idris Elba. "It’s also about bringing the music industry to account for the injustice inflicted on generations of musical talents who have been deprived of their rightful rewards both financially and in terms of status and respect."
