BBC Two celebrates Sir Elton John with an evening of programmes dedicated to the iconic singer-songwriter. Featuring a new and exclusive documentary, Madman Across The Water - The Making Of Elton John, the night also includes Elton John - BBC Radio 2 Electric Prom recorded earlier in the month and finishes with Elton John At The BBC, a compilation of archives documenting the star's career. This documentary, featuring new and rare interviews with, among others, Bernie Taupin, T-Bone Burnett, Leon Russell and an extensive and exclusive interview with Elton, traces the early years and road to stardom of the most successful living male solo artist. It tells of Elton's youth in leafy Pinner, Middlesex, his lengthy apprenticeship in the British music business of the mid-Sixties and his sudden stardom in the USA in 1970, followed by a golden period of albums, tours and hits that made Elton perhaps the international superstar of the Seventies. It is also an account of the damage, drugs and depression on the underside of all that glittering stardom. More of a Rod Stewart fan? Piers Morgan's Life Stories: Rod Stewart, 9.45pm on UTV.
