It's certainly different from this which it was based on

If you can find it, there was the fabulous BBC Four programme "Mr Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO". Not currently on iPlayer, but might lurk somewhere. Magic, and a good bit of Roy Orbison, too.

Now that will be worth seeking out Chris...

Annoys me at times that the iPlayer does not have everything on it. I was under the impression the BBC were making it a full archive of their past programming but I must have misunderstood...

For many programmes, BBC owns the complete copyright (usually programmes made by themselves) and is free to broadcast, repeat and leave in iPlayer indefinitely. Horizon is a good example of this: hundreds of past programmes available.

For other programmes, the agreement could be for one screening only (eg a Hollywood or UK feature film), or maybe one and a couple of repeats, or iPlayer for a limited 'catch-up' time.

There is the option of looking on iPlayer for "All Programmes", which are listed alphabetically. Thousands of items, going back to Hancock and older. Quite an archive.

Where what you want is no longer on iPlayer, ITV Hub or 4OD, worth putting the title+youtube into google. Quite a few items, recent and old, bootleg uploaded and available. Not that this could be recommended, of course.

A very handy tool for getting hold of and keeping iPlayer programmes is GetiPlayer:

It can be a little clunky to install, but once there, is a very useful bit of software :)

I do have a good copy of this documentary sitting on my computer....... but it'd be very wrong of me to publicly offer a copy to anyone if they're interested :^o [-X 8-[ :-D
