The BBC is set to air a new hour-long documentary to mark the 30th anniversary of the death of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain.

BBC will present a wide range of content across television and radio on April 5, including the documentary, titled Moments That Shook Music: Kurt Cobain, on BBC 2 and iPlayer.

According to a press release, the documentary will be “told exclusively through powerful and rare archive footage,” delivering a “visceral account of the days that surrounded that tragic moment” when Cobain took his own life.

Jonathan Rothery, Head of BBC Popular Music TV said, “Kurt Cobain’s life and death has turned into myth and legend since his passing. This documentary tries to demystify that moment in time by telling the story direct from the scene, via fly on the wall footage filmed by those that were there.”

Touchdown Films founder John Osbourne, who produced and directed the documentary, said, “We are incredibly proud to be working with the BBC on this film, who share in our vision of using only archive [material] to take viewers back to 1994; to immerse themselves in this seismic story.”

“Kurt Cobain was the voice of a generation, but a reluctant one, and his death left a huge void. The only way to get a true sense of what happened is to witness it first hand, and that’s exactly what this film does. It never lets you look away,” he added.

Cobain, who experienced struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, took his own life on April 5, 1994.
