No Sleep Till Sheffield: Pulp Go Public (1995)
Short and not particularly deep but a lovely throwback to the mid-90s. Also old enough that it still has (for whatever reason!) a random spot of Gary Glitter.

Manic Street Preachers – From There To Here (BBC2 1998)
Another nice mid-90s documentary, this time on the Manic Street Preachers.

It seems to have been first shown at 6.00pm on the March 2nd, 2009.
