Double bill of films featuring The Who. 'Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who' (2007) details the highs and lows of the career of British rock band The Who. The film-makers speak with surviving band members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend who discuss the group's origins and influences and how they have gone on to become rock legends in spite of the excesses and tragedies which have plagued them over the years. 'Quadrophenia' (1979) follows Jimmy (Phil Daniels), a young Mod looking for pills, thrills and a sense of identity in 1960s London. His increasing reliance on the buzz provided by the gang mentality of his friends reaches its height in the Brighton bank holiday confrontations with the rockers. An inevitable comedown follows when he is expected to return to the plodding banality of everyday life.
