Keith Moon's finnest hour captured on DVD 

For fans of The Who the world over, the date December 15th 1977 holds a special place in their hearts, that day The Gaumont State Theatre in Kilburn was the scene of the second to last public performance of the band with legendary drummer Keith Moon.

The band would perform together one more time a year later on a soundstage but for many this was the last real performance. Until now only short excerpts of this blistering show have ever been seen, but for years Who fans, The Whooligans, have been petitioning the band for a full release of this remarkable event in the bands history.

Maximum R&B: The Birth of The Who

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05zq4m1

This year The Who celebrate the 50th anniversary of their first UK single 'I Can't Explain' and their seminal track 'My Generation' (as well as their debut album) and mark it with the release of career spanning box set, a huge show in Hyde Park in July and headline slot at Glastonbury.

To recognise this momentous year, this new documentary sees guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend and lead singer Roger Daltrey look back to the very start of the band. Recalling how The Who's obsession with the music of Chicago, Memphis and Mississippi shaped their songwriting and explaining how these distinctively American songs, often born of social unrest and racial segregation, had parallels in the lives of post-war urban British kids, and in the case of The Who, earned them the now-legendary description 'Maximum R&B'

Hosted by Matt Everitt and featuring exclusive contributions from Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Graham Coxon from Blur, Wilko Johnson, Supergrass' Gaz Combes, Mark King from Level 42, Richard Barnes, Kaiser Chief Ricky Wilson, Johnny Marr and Sir Paul McCartney plus exclusive previously unreleased music from the band live in 1964.

You can hear an extended two-part series on BBC Radio 6 Music.
