Still Bill: The Bill Withers Story

Caught an excellent and revealing documentary on BBC Four last week about soul legend Bill Withers who didn’t become a star until the age of 28 and struck gold with his first song, Ain’t No Sunshine.

This insightful documentary reveals how, in spite of his success, Withers never felt comfortable working in the music industry and explains why he hasn’t released an album since 1985. Watch it here until 19 March
