ABC1, 9.30pm

This fas­ci­nat­ing mu­sic bi­og­ra­phy tracks the tu­mul­tuous ca­reer and life of Sun­ny­boys front­man Jeremy Ox­ley from be­ing touted as one of the most ta­lented singer/ song­writ­ers in Aus­tralia to his down­ward spi­ral into schizophre­nia. This pow­er­ful doco takes a look at how Ox­ley be­came un­able to cope with his rapid mu­si­cal suc­cess, turn­ing to drink and drugs in­stead. View­ers also see how the close re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ox­ley and his brother Peter be­came frayed when it was re­vealed Ox­ley was hav­ing para­noid and dis­turb­ing thoughts about Peter. But there is en­light­en­ment in see­ing a 50- year- old Jeremy re­turn to the stage to a hero’s wel­come. It’s a must for mu­sic lovers.
