Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott appeared in the 2012 Status Quo documentary Hello Quo and it is being shown again tonight on BBC Four in the UK.

The one hour 20 minute documentary is on at 10pm tonight on BBC Four.

It was last shown in March 2016 and for those in the UK it will be available again on the BBC iPlayer after broadcast.

This documentary is followed by the one hour 'Status Quo: Live and Acoustic' special filmed in London in 2014.

Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt passed away in December 2016 with Joe paying tribute to him on his weekly Planet Rock radio show.

The 80 minute documentary was released in 2012 on DVD/Blu-ray and was shown in UK cinemas.

Seven brief clips with Joe talking in his home studio are shown at around 1, 17, 19, 20, 40, 43 and 1hr8mins.

The documentary also features contributions from Brian May, Scott Gorham and one time Def Leppard back-up drummer Jeff Rich.

A photo gallery of screenshots is available on the 2014 show page.

Status Quo - Hello Quo

"You don't sell 128 million albums worldwide without putting in the graft and Status Quo are, quite possibly, the hardest working band in Britain. Alan G Parker's documentary Hello Quo, specially re-edited for the BBC, recounts the band's epic story from the beginning - when south London schoolmates Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster formed their first band with big ambitions of rock 'n' roll domination, quickly adding drummer John Coghlan and guitarist Rick Parfitt.

The film tells the story of Quo's hits from their unusually psychedelic early hit, Pictures of Matchstick Men, followed by a run through their classics Down Down to Whatever You Want."
