In the first episode, Cherise is joined by Tomorrow’s Warriors founders Gary Crosby and Janine Irons to discover how the organisation was born 30 years ago - getting into their musical roots, and the activist mindset that has driven them forward. Saxophone titan Denys Baptiste, one of the first Warriors in the 1990s, recounts his memories of the early years and talks with emerging talent Roella Oloro, ahead of her piano performance.
