Shine a Light, 9.00pm, Sky Arts
Shine a Light is a very fine 2008 documentary film directed by Martin Scorsese which records The Rolling Stones' 2006 Beacon Theatre performance on their A Bigger Bang Tour. It is a particularly uplifting event, the band are kind of on fire most of the time and whether that's because they are aware of the filming or not we will never know - that's too mercurial a thing to ascertain anyway. Taking its title from the song, Shine A Light, which featured on the band's 1972 album Exile on Main Street, the film also includes archive footage from the their long career. The duet with Buddy Guy is something to behold and hear, while Christina Aguilera and Jack White also rise suitably to the occasion. Scorsese directed one of the greatest concert films ever in The Last Waltz, and the intervening decades have not dimmed his passion which shines through. In a more topical vein, Scorsese and Jagger are the men behind Vinyl, Sky Atlantic's forthcoming series about the music business. Read TEN's review of Shine a Light.
