One of the interviews has lots of unnecessary background music that couldn’t be edited out, and there’s some dodgey editing and audio distortion in there too. You learn from your mistakes apparently, and I have learned a lot since I made this last year.

One of the stars in this documentary is

You can download the documentary

I haven’t tried it properly yet so hope it works.
