The BBC will air a new documentary film about the late Amy Winehouse called 10 Years On as the 10th anniversary of her passing approaches this summer.
In a big contrast from the 2015 film AMY, this one will tell the story of the troubled singer from the perspective of her mother Janies. “I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy,” she said.
10 Years On aims to put a “shining a light on parts of her life that have, to date, not been heard about”.
Janis, Amy’s mother, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2003. She wanted to do this know as in the long term MS can affect a person’s memory. She wants those memories of Amy to be documented before it’s too late.
“I worry about the day when Amy stops being alive in my head and in my heart. I don’t want that day ever to come,” Janis said.
Amy passed away from alcohol poisoning on July 27, 2011.
