ABC2, Sun­day, 8.30pm ★★★★ Ev­ery­one re­mem­bers Joe Strum­mer as the fierce front­man for The Clash. This doc­u­men­tary digs deep to present a rounded por­trait of the rocker who died trag­i­cally early of a heart de­fect in 2002 at the age of 50. Es­pe­cially in­ter­est­ing is a look at Strum­mer’s un­fairly ne­glected post-Clash mu­sic ca­reer. The film comes from di­rec­tor Julien Tem­ple, whose work in­cludes the Sex Pis­tols’ movie The Great Rock and Roll Swin­dle and the ex­cel­lent mu­sic doc­u­men­tary The Filth and The Fury.
