On Wednesday, the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC Two and BBC Music announced 10 Years On, a documentary on Amy Winehouse told from the perspective of her mother Janis. As the title suggests, the documentary comes ten years after the award-winning singer’s death.
“I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up,” Janis said in a release. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy.” Janis noted that her vision of Amy “often differs from the narrative we have been told before.”
Janis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2003, and said she wanted to make the documentary before MS “threatens to strip her of her memories of Amy.” In 2014, she published the book Loving Amy: A Mother’s Story.
