Great BBC series airing now called How It Works - Part 1 was on Metal, part 2 was plastics, and part 3 (yet to air) on ceramics.

Sounds a mundane topic but its not, its brilliantly constructed and presented.

^ I saw this last night. While it has its charms, and he is an interesting subject, it's poorly made with no real skill in telling the very thin story.

Couldnt disagree more.

I thought it was told in a very subtle and sensitive way. Actually one of the best docs I have ever seen.

BBC: Quadrophenia - Can you see the real me?
Quote:
In his home studio and revisiting old haunts in Shepherds Bush and Battersea, Pete Townshend opens his heart and his personal archive to revisit 'the last great album the Who ever made', one that took the Who full circle back to their earliest days via the adventures of a pill-popping mod on an epic journey of self-discovery.

But in 1973 Quadrophenia was an album that almost never was. Beset by money problems, a studio in construction, heroin-taking managers, a lunatic drummer and a culture of heavy drinking, Townshend took on an album that nearly broke him and one that within a year the band had turned their back on and would ignore for nearly three decades.

With unseen archive and in-depth interviews from Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, John Entwistle and those in the studio and behind the lens who made the album and thirty page photo booklet.
