Jack of Diamonds was an excellent 30-minute documentary that was screened in early 1998 in Scotland and featured interviews with John Peel, Bill Wyman, Joe Brown, Adam Faith, Mark Knopfler and Van Morrison as well as Lonnie himself- filmed at his home in Spain. There were also scenes from Lonnie's family life in Spain as well as excerpts from a number of his performances both old and new, including some rare b&w material that has never appeared on youtube- or ineed anywhere else to the best of my knowledge.
The prospects of a new serious in-depth documentary I would personally assess as nil, alas. I can't imagine that anyone in the TV media would judge there to be a sufficient audience to warrant the enterprise and it would be difficult to argue that they would be wrong. I think short tributes such as the feature on The One Show is the best we can hope for.
The Everley Brothers documentary was made in 1984 by the way and was of course repeated because of Phil's recent death. I doubt whether such a programme would be made today, 55 years after their heyday.
