Ronnie The Passing Show – The Life And Music Of Ronnie Lane
Friday 6th January 9.00-10.15pm BBC FOUR (followed by Ronnie Lane at the BBC)

Another tasty looking show from BBC4, this time on Ronnie Lane, bass player and songwriter extraordinaire of the Small Faces, charting his musical ups and downs, financial misfortune and his decline in health due to multiple sclerosis.

Expect plenty of quality Small Faces and Faces footage, plus some more obscure footage from later in his career – and hopefully plenty of comment from "grizzled" old musicians instead of the usual talking heads!
