Pick of the Day

The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? 9.00pm, Sky Documentaries & NOW TV

This HBO documentary chronicles the triumphs and hurdles faced by brothers Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees.

The iconic trio, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs and have 20 number one hits throughout their career, transcending more than five decades of changing tastes and styles.

There was so much more to them than Barry's falsetto and Saturday Night Fever.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Marshall (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seabiscuit), the film is an intimate exploration of the Gibb story, featuring revealing interviews with oldest and sole surviving brother Barry and archival interviews with his late twin brothers Robin and Maurice.
