This is a really great Documentary - or "Rockumentary", if you will - which uses a live performance by the Doors at the Roundhouse in London during 1968 as a basis for an exploration of the character of the group and the context of their music.
Excellent concert footage is intercut with interviews and news coverage of the day to create a fascinating document.

This was first broadcast by Granada on 17 December 1968, but neither the domestic VCR or myself had been invented at this point, so I had wait until it was re-shown by Channel 4 on 28 June 1991 to record it.
