Channel 4's late night music zone, 4Music, returns for an eight week run starting on Thursday May 3, and kicking off the season is a whole night dedicated to the biggest and most controversial star of rap, Eminem, whose recent UK concert provoked widespread outrage.

The three time Grammy and Brit Award winner is featured live in concert in Santa Monica, California, capturing the live Eminem experience in all its uncompromising, controversial glory, featuring hits Stan, The Real Slim Shady, My Name Is... and The Way I Am, together with scenes from the animated The Slim Shady Show and an exclusive interview filmed backstage at the concert. But the night starts with a special Eminem documentary about the provocative star, recently put on probation for two years after pistol-whipping a man who had kissed his now estranged wife Kim. Please Stand Up, features exclusive interviews about the rapper with All Saints, Craig David and Victoria Beckham, plus performances from his controversial Up In Smoke tour and an interview with 'Slim Shady' himself.

4Music has moved to a new Thursday night slot reflecting its fresh new attitude and contains many of the old favourites plus some new programmes. Flava Bites is a new 15 minute show dedicated to black music. Each week includes the latest videos and a celebrity video diary. In the first week it catches up with Missy Elliott, recorded when she was in the UK for her recent shows. Cool Cuts, the animated dance show, returns featuring the best in dance music videos. 4Play, the show that helped launch the careers of Badly Drawn Boy, Moloko and Craig David, will continue to push fresh new talent, this time catching up with Rae and Christian, Nash, Jim White, My Vitriol, Zero 7 and Mogwai. Also planned is an in-depth look at more established artists. Already lined up is former Crowded House member Neil Finn, with Stereo MC's and The Divine Comedy to be confirmed.

Documentaries are a feature of the new 4Music slot with a look at 'the next Ibiza', Punte del Este in South America, and at Lenny Kravitz's greatest hits, plus profiles of the world's top DJs.

The eight week run culminates on Thursday 21 June with a night devoted entirely to the 'world's biggest band' the Manic Street Preachers. Kicking off with a second chance to see their stunning, history-making concert in Cuba, the night continues with a one on one between lead singer James Dean Bradfield and Sean Rowley in All Back To Mine.

4Music then returns in late August for a mammoth 26-week run to take us through until February 2002.
