Brad Pitt in the studio
Pitt fitted the documentary in between shooting.
Nick Drake is the quintessential cult hero, and you can hear again why as Radio 2 presents another chance to hear 2004's acclaimed documentary, presented by Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt.

Pitt was approached by Radio 2 earlier this year after the network learned he was a huge Nick Drake fan.

Pitt says: "I was introduced to Nick Drake's music about five years ago, and am a huge admirer of his records.

"When Radio 2 approached me to get involved in this project, I was delighted to be asked and pleased that I was able to fit it into my schedule."

Find out more about Drake's life, his classic albums and the programme itself below.
