    Loved this documentary. The thing about Amy is that she is just a regular girl, fame doesn't appear to have effected her at all - well almost not at all, she does own a Ferrari 458! When you see so many go off the rails, start believing their own press and get all prissy, it is refreshing to see someone succeed with the right values. She has clearly been very well brought up, a credit to her parents.

    Lovely documentary, only complain I have is that it is too short! Amy Macdonald is such an amazing artist, my absolute favourite musician, I hope she will continue having a successful career.

    There is freedom of services within europe, isnt it ? It is no censorship but worse: illegal discrimination to viewers all over europe - however the moneymachine will roll over the brilliant talent of amy - unfortunately ...

    UK Citizens pay a tv licence for BBC programmes. Channel five is not funded by the TV licence.

    this program is not avaliable outside uk because uk citizens pay a tv licence which funds such programs offering this program to people outside the uk would be unfair in many ways

    Paul Hawley, I think she is a huge star. She just doesn't get as much publicity coz she doesn't take her clothes off or behave in a disgusting way. She has class and true talent so will always be a real star in my eyes.
