Amy Winehouse documentary released by BBC

A new BBC documentary about Amy Winehouse has been released.

The late singer is the subject of In Her Own Words, which collates interviews and performances from the BBC.

It also includes previously unseen footage of Winehouse, who died in 2011.

The programme is available to watch in the UK on BBC iPlayer.

Mark Cooper, Head of BBC Music TV, commented: "Of course, Britain has produced a lot of brilliant female singer-songwriters and vocalists in the last decade or so, many from Beth Gibbons to Adele, rooted in older black American forms, soul and jazz and blues.

"But there was only ever one Amy Winehouse. She was frank and fresh and haunted. And we miss her."

The film precedes the upcoming feature-length documentary Amy, which will hit cinemas from July 3.
