If you can’t afford the Super Deluxe Edition box set, you can have a viewing of the newly-restored Rolling Stones’ Charlie Is My Darling movie for free – by turning on your TV.

The BBC has confirmed that BBC Two will screen the updated version if the sought-after ’60s flick this month. It hasn’t given a date, but the Peter Whitehead and Andrew Loog Oldham-produced 1965 road movie is likely to be part of a Friday theme night – and not tonight or the week after. As soon as I get an exact date, I’ll update this article. But late November is certain.

It’s part of a 50th anniversary Stones month, covering BBC Two, BBC Four and Radio Two. Other highlights for fans of the band include a premiere of the new Crossfire Hurricane documentary, along with the likes of Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones (BBC Four), The Rolling Stones at the BBC (BBC Two), .. Sings Rolling Stones (BBC Two), Rolling Stones Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus (BBC Two) and lots of radio documentaries, interviews and compilation shows on Radio Two, along with bonus ‘red button’ clips.
