Shaun Ryder Comes Clean 
The reality show we've all been waiting for is to be screened in February 2004. This from BBC Three's February 2004 Highlights: "In Shaun Ryder Comes Clean, film-maker Richard Macer spends eight months with Shaun as he attempts to piece his life back together. Shaun Ryder - singer, songwriter and front man of The Happy Mondays and Black Grape - hit rock bottom Down Under a year ago; his assets frozen, locked in litigation, continuing drug problems - his family in Australia feared for his life.

The film-maker Richard Macer (The Real Swiss Toni, Jordan - The Truth About Me) spends eight months with Shaun as he pieces his life back together. Out of rehab he has attempted to adopt a healthy lifestyle and wrestles with the demands of fatherhood. But he's still on the brink of bankruptcy following a protracted legal battle with his former manager. Meanwhile he relocates to Australia to promote his new album and rejoin his family who have helped him through his darkest days. It's a candid and sometimes blunt insight into his life with some telling footage about the relationship with his family."
