A new BBC documentary about Amy Winehouse features previously unheard recordings by the late 'Back to Black' star.

Live performances of Love Is A Losing Game and Wake Up Alone, which were never broadcast, are included in Amy Winehouse: In Her Own Words which also features interviews with the star recorded for the BBC.

The documentary, available on BBC iPlayer from today (Monday June 22), is released ahead of the feature length documentary 'Amy' which will release in cinemas this weekend.

Directed by Asif Kapadia it includes more than 100 interviews with 80 people, including friends, family and colleagues, although Amy's father Mitch has recently stated he is considering legal action as he feels he is portrayed as an absent father. 

Kapadia's film releases in Ireland on July 3.

The BBC documentary, however, focuses solely on interviews with Amy herself and she talks about her musical influences, dreams, and her lyrics as well as her relationship with Blake Fielder Civil.

Amy Winehouse died in London in 2001 when she was just 27.
