What will the documentary explore?

Reclaiming Amy will be narrated by Winehouse's mother Janis Winehouse-Collins and will include the singer-songwriter's father, Mitch, as a guest interviewee.

The BBC Two description reads: "Marking the ten year anniversary of the death of Amy Winehouse, her closest family and friends, including mum Janis and dad Mitch, reveal the truth about the British music icon."

A previous press release explained that Winehouse's mother wants to be able to tell Amy's story in her own words before her Multiple Sclerosis progresses.

It read: "Janis lives with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition which threatens to strip her of her memories of Amy, and is a large part of her motivation to make this timely and personal documentary."

Janis said of the documentary: “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."

Reclaiming Amy airs on BBC Two from Friday 23 July at 9pm and on BBC iPlayer shortly after.
