Watch: MM takes a look at the curious world of Frank Sidebottom

A film charting the life of Mancunian comedy hero Chris Sievey and his alter-ego Frank Sidebottom will be released nationwide tomorrow.

Being Frank contains interviews with Chris’ family, friends and famous fans knitted between footage spanning from the 70s all the up to his passing in 2010.

An exhibition of archive material is currently running at Manchester Central Library until April 30, and it’s full of videos, props and even Frank’s original head!

You can find your nearest cinema showing the documentary at BeingFrank.film or request it to be played where you are at OurScreen.com.

MM reporter Adam Wareing spoke to people who knew Chris to discuss his legacy and the upcoming film.
