BBC to uncover 'real Amy Winehouse' with documentary marking 10th anniversary of her death

THE BBC will mark ten years since the death of Amy Winehouse with a documentary uncovering “the real Amy”.

The Back To Black and Rehab singer died of alcohol poisoning aged 27 on July 23, 2011.

The film will feature interviews with mum Janis Winehouse, unseen family footage and BBC archive content.

Janis has multiple sclerosis, a brain condition which can lead to memory loss, and hopes by taking part she will leave a record of a different side to her daughter.

Janis said: “I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up.

“I'm looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy."

The documentary has the working title Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On.

Asif Kapadia’s 2015 documentary Amy won an Oscar but her dad Mitch called it a “sham”.

Amy died at home in Camden, North London.
