Synopsis

Tony Wilson was the co-founder of Factory Records and The Hacienda, he kick-started the careers of Joy Division, Happy Mondays, and New Order, he put the Sex Pistols on television for the first time and was the inspiration behind the film 24 Hour Party People. From his unique childhood growing up with a gay father and a domineering mother to his tragically early death in 2007 after battling the NHS for a drug that could prolong his life, David Nolan investigates the lives and times of the man they called "Mr. Manchester." Drawing on nearly 50 interviews with musicians, DJs, writers, actors, family, and friends-including Wilson's partner of 17 years Yvette Livesey, You're Entitled To An Opinion . . . paints a picture of a unique, driven, and chaotic man whose inspiration and influence is still being felt today across the worlds of music and television.
