Amy Winehouse

1 hour
First broadcast:
Sunday 28 October 2012

1Xtra looks at the career and influence of Amy Winehouse.

There's a saying that the candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long - this is definitely true of Amy. She leaves a relatively small body of work, but it had a massive impact on the world of music.

Trevor Nelson speaks to some of those closest to her and we hear some of the stories behind the instantly recognisable global hits, with contributions from the likes of Mark Ronson, Salam Remi, Amy's father Mitch and Dionne Bromfield.

We celebrate the music of Amy Winehouse, look at her legacy and the work of the foundation set up in her name.
