Sorry this is a bit late.  This looks like a new programme so could 
be interesting.

Quadrophenia: Can you see the real me?  Duration 1h 10m

<from bbc website>

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.

Contributors include: Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ethan Russell, 
Ron Nevison, Richard Barnes, Irish Jack Lyons, Bill Curbishley, John 
Woolf, Howie Edelson, Mark Kermode and Georgiana Steele Waller.
