Mark Radcliffe presents an intimate portrait of Joe Strummer, one of the most iconic figures of the last 30 years.
Radcliffe was at Strummer's last-recorded stage performance and he conducted possibly the last ever interview committed to tape, capturing a snapshot of Strummer's life just months before his untimely death.
This programme does not re-tell The Clash story, but instead presents the thoughts, words and music of a man who, 17 years after The Clash had disbanded, was as vibrant, creative and outspoken as ever.
Mark Radcliffe's candid exchange with Strummer weaves around some of the tracks from Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros' 2002 set at the Cambridge Folk Festival.
Anecdotes and reminiscences come from Billy Bragg, band member Scott Shields and biographer David Quantick.
