Reggae royalty

With a career spanning 50 years and 25 million albums sold, Jimmy Cliff is perhaps the greatest reggae star alive today. In this show, Eve Jackson retraces his half-century of success, from the film "The Harder They Come" - which brought reggae to an international audience - to his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and his new album "Re:Birth". To top it off, he plays live at the end of the show.
