Preview – Roy Orbison: Love Hurts

Roy Orbison

This documentary follows a musician whose life was both joyous and tragic.

Roy Orbison was one of the biggest stars of his age with many hits to his name like “Pretty Woman” and “Only the Lonely”, but he also had many setbacks, not least the deaths of his first wife in a motorbike accident, and two of his children when his house back in the US burned down while he was performing in the UK.

Orbison’s surviving sons; Wesley, Roy Junior and Alex are among those talking about their father, and how he was able to recover from these events.

Roy Orbison: Love Hurts is on BBC Four at 21.30.
