The Ecstasy and the Agony 
The first episode in the new Shaun Ryder fly on the wall documentary screens on BBC Three on Sunday 15 February at 9pm. The full title is 'Shaun Ryder: The Ecstasy and the Agony' whereas it was known in development as 'Shaun Ryder Comes Clean'. From the BBC Three website:

"Shaun Ryder is one of the most iconic and controversial musicians of the last twenty years. He's lived a hell raising life so extreme it's a wonder to many that he hasn't died. But despite having huge success with his bands The Happy Mondays and Black Grape, the wild frontman is living in poverty."

If the preview is anything to go by this should be an outstanding piece of television.
