BBC Four to air Beach Boys night

This coming Friday, BBC4 is devoting the entire evening to the Wilson's:

BBC Four is to devote a night’s programming to the Beach Boys later this month.

Friday February 26 will see the channel air a documentary on the life of Dennis Wilson, entitled Legends: Dennis Wilson, followed by Pet Sounds: Brian Wilson Live In London, a concert film in which the former Beach Boy plays the band’s classic 1966 Pet Sounds album from start to finish.

The night finishes with Imagine – Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson’s Smile, in which Alan Yentob examines the band’s legendary lost album, Smile.

Legends kicks off proceedings at 9pm.

An Early Review of Legends

Here's an early review of the show, from RadioTimes:

Friday 26 February
9:00pm - 10:00pm

A fresh telling of the familiar fable about the rapid ascent and pained descent of a rock star - you might not know the Dennis Wilson version, but it's as tragic and intriguing as any. This film also offers a new angle on the Beach Boys, by only discussing Brian Wilson's wobbly genius in terms of how it affected his brother. One of rock's first sexy drummers, Dennis brought a rugged cool to a band otherwise staffed by portly fusspots. But before his own soulful, salty voice could fully emerge, he'd been dragged down by the Manson family, booze, commercial pressure and some poorly chosen wives. His one great LP was 1977's hairy, funky, murky Pacific Ocean Blue. Here, fans can enjoy seeing the gospel choir that elevates the classic track River Song; the rest can marvel at how they came this far in life without hearing it.
