Influential songwriter Ronnie Lane shot to fame first with The Small Faces and then The Faces. "The Passing show" covers his life from early successes in the 1960s to his death in 1997, through interviews with his family, friends and musicians such as Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, producer Glyn Johns and others. The film features his bands' performances, including never-seen-before footage and later concerts when he was suffering from multiple sclerosis. Directed by two BBC employees, Rupert Williams and James Mackie, who are fans of Ronnie's music, the film is filled with affection.
