Unseen footage of Amy.

UNSEEN material of tragic pop star Amy Winehouse features in a new BBC documentary out today.

It includes an interview where the music icon says a good singer has to be their "own worst enemy".

Amy, whose smash hits included Rehab and Back In Black, died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011, aged 27, after a public struggle with drink and drugs.

Amy Winehouse In Her Own Words will show performances from a BBC1 session in 2007 after her album Back To Black made her an international name.

In another clip she tells an interviewer: "I'd say to sing soul you have to have grit. You have to be able to see through the world.

"You have to be your own best friend as well as your own worst enemy."

The show, which will be available on BBC iPlayer today, also includes footage from Glastonbury and the 2004 Mercury Music Prize.

BBC music editor James Stirling said: "We're honoured to pay tribute to Amy with unseen and rare footage.

"Amy wrote smart, sad, soulful and original pop songs that inspired a generation."
