A tweet from the band’s official Twitter account has asked fans for their input into the new programme.
The folks at @BBCFOUR are putting together a doc and they need your help!” the tweet read. “E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!”
A BBC press representative has since explained that the show, titled People’s History of Pop, is “a five-part series going out as part of the yearlong BBC Music My Generation season which is charting the UK’s popular music heritage from the 1950s to the noughties, over 50 years of incredible British music, through the eyes of musicians and music fans.” It will focus “on the stories and memorabilia of music fans.”
A documentary about The Libertines titled There Are No Innocent Bystanders was released in 2011 and was directed by photographer Roger Sargent.
Sargent also made a short film following the band in Thailand around the making of their third album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’.
