Jeff Lynne, über-producer, sometime Traveling Wilbury and lead electrician with the Electric Light Orchestra, is long overdue a rockumentary. Detractors pooh-poohed their string-drenched sound, but ELO were in a league of their own, and their hits including the imperishable Mr Blue Sky are still winning over new generations.
See the Light brigade showcasing their gatefold-tastic Out of the Blue LP at Wembley in 1978 (10pm), and discover where they fit into the Brum-rock jigsaw in Rock Family Trees at 11pm.
The life and career of singer-songwriter Jeff Lynne, from his early days in the Birmingham rock scene to his success with Electric Light Orchestra during the 1970s and stint as a member of the Traveling Wilburys with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and George Harrison. Featuring contributions by the artist himself, along with his friends and colleagues Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Barbara Orbison and Eric Idle.
