This is a fascinating and massively entertaining account of the life of Phil Lynott; a man whose talent is hailed universally but whose early life of poverty is less well documented. The programme seeks to address, with marked success, some of the unanswered questions. We're treated to a rare insight and even rarer interview by his mother Philomena, who speaks fondly of her famous son, ranging from her trauma in the early years to the devastation of finding him close to death just 37 years later; the revelations are incredibly moving and remarkably informative. Also featured on this amazing DVD are interviews by fellow band members Eric Bell and Brian Robertson and more, plus an interview with long time friend George Best; an interview that would sadly prove to be his last! All this plus footage including the first ever release of their performance from Dublin's National Stadium in 1975 plus a bonus of rare and previously unseen Lizzy film.
