Upcoming BBC show to feature unseen Nirvana footage

On May 19, BBC2 in the UK will start airing a show called "Seven Ages Of Rock" - a seven part series that explores rock music from the 1960s to the present day. The 6th episode will feature Nirvana:

"We'll take a fresh look at the explosion of the Seattle 'grunge' scene, culminating in the success of Nirvana's Nevermind and the short life and tragic death of Kurt Cobain an artist whose triumph and tragedy continues to cast an inescapable shadow."

Apparently the show will include previously unaired Nirvana footage from the April 17, 1991 Seattle concert of their first-ever live performance of Smells Like Teen Spirit. There will also be unseen rushes from BBCs "Rapido" interview with Nirvana in 1991.
