The Story of The Jam (Sky Arts 5th September)

Saturday Night TV is usually a total bust as one has to hurdle over Pop Star Wanna-Be's on the X-Factor or third rate celebs strutting their stuff on the dance floor with Strictly Come Dancing but last night was a real treat over on Sky Arts because not only was there a concert by The Specials from their 30th Anniversary Tour, but following was a few hours tv devoted to The Jam.

First up was the excellent set from 1980's Rockpalast show in Dortmund,and then a brand new documentary The Story of The Jam - About The Young Idea. Whilst there was nothing earth shatteringly new in the film it was great to see some old footage of the band in action and hearing all the members of the band (including original guitarist Steve Brookes) talking about the experience but a nice touch to it was the fans eye view it gave.

If you have Sky Arts and missed it first time around keep an eye open for a repeat showing (they are bound to show it again sometime!).
