1986年暮の時点での このドキュメンタリー番組の情報 
 
スウォンジーのロジャー・エバンスというソングライターが ホワイ という、ピートとトムに捧げる歌を作った。
BBCはこれに関連して、ピートやトムを中心にしたバッドフィンガーのドキュメンタリー番組の制作を進めており、これは70年代中頃のあの裁判問題にも光を当てている。
ピートの兄、ジョンはこの番組に彼の所有する20時間にも及ぶ未発表のバッドフィンガーのフィルムを提供した。
これにはたぶん72年のアメリカツアー時の模様も収録されており、大部分はピート自身によって撮影されたものらしい。
この番組は ウィークイン・ウィークアウト のスペシャル番組で、現時点では放送日時も、BBCウェールズだけのローカル放送になるのかもはっきりしていない。

[Narrator]  Meanwhile, Pete's band-mate and best friend Tommy Evans was slowly falling apart. 
 
[Marianne Evans]  When he died, Tommy didn't have anybody he could talk to, write songs with, his other half was gone so he felt lost and lonely. Many times he said, "I want to be there where he is." Everything went wrong for Tommy as well - tax problems, taxman after him, somebody sued him for five million - so everything just collapsed. 
 
[Beverley Tucker]  Tom tried really hard after Pete died. He kind of tried to make it better, not just for him but for Pete, but they got set back after set back. 
 
[Narrator]  Eight years after Pete's death, Tommy also hanged himself. 
 
[Tag Hall]  I was angry with Tommy when he took his life. Too many people had gone through enough with Peter's death cos you don't tend to bury friends before you're 30. One's...one's bad enough. ................Two's too many.

[Narrator]  It all happened a long time ago but for those who lived through it, the story of Badfinger, the friendships and the music, live on. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  Now, it's time for a new chapter to be written. On the 20th of August, 2013, Petera gave birth to Pete's first grandchild, who she called Luca William Ham.

[PA]  Today is a really important day for this city. Today is a day we honour one of our sons. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]   In April 2013, people from all over the world came to Swansea in South Wales to pay tribute to Pete Ham, an unsung hero of British pop music. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[man]  Today I believe is a long overdue event in Swansea. It's recognising Pete, Pete Ham, and what he did, not only for Swansea but for the music scene in general. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[PA]  When we unveil the plaque, we'll honour Peter, but we put on record that if you are a kid from Swansea, you can still do something amazing and you can change the world! 
 
[Narrator]  Amongst the guests were Pete's partner Anne and his daughter Petera, who grew up in Glasgow without knowing her father. 
 
[PA]  This is Peter's daughter, Petera. 
 
[Ann Herriot]  It is very emotional for me, especially when I hear the Welsh accent. Petera, my daughter, is unveiling the plaque, which is lovely for me, for her to be doing that. 
 
[Petera Ham-Eddie]  Although I didn't know my dad, I still feel very close to him through all of his music and everything my mum tells me about him. Many people don't get hear things about their father after they go, at least I've got his music and I'm just very, very proud. 
 
[Narrator]  This is the story of Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger.

Last Words Pete Ham
 #timeless 
 
[Narrator]  It was the last straw for Pete. All he'd ever wanted to be was a musician. Now, he felt that everything he and the band had worked for had come to nothing.  He went to see Tommy. 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Bob]  They went for a few drinks at the pub, drowned their sorrows a little bit, I guess. Tommy drove Pete back to his house and Pete got out and said, "Don't worry, mate, I've got a plan. I know what to do. I've got a way out this, don't worry. Bye." 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Bob]  Later on in the morning, there was this panicky phone call from Anne and she spoke to Marianne and Tommy and said, "There's something awful happened, something terrible terrible."   So, Tommy rushed round there and found Peter hanging in the garage. 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Narrator]  Pete was just 27 years old. He left a suicide note which read, "I will not be allowed to love and trust everybody. This is better. PS, Stan Polley is a soulless bastard. I will take him with me." 
 
[Narrator]  Anne returned to her home town of Glasgow and five weeks after Pete's death, she gave birth to their daughter who she called Petera. 
 
[Anne Herriot]  People had said to me after it, "It was terrible what he did, leaving you with the baby." I could never say that. I wish I could but I could never say that about Pete and I know that he wasn't himself when he did that. The doctor had explained to me that his mind had probably just gone. 
 
[Bob]  I understand that Polley, who had actually taken life insurances out on everyone, was trying to cash in a policy on Pete, you know. Even after this terrible event, he was still trying to make money on it somehow, you know.

 #apple of my eye 

[Nicky Bell]  Pete was a very loyal guy and didn't want to split away from Apple. You know, that was like leaving part of the family again. And I think that was a terrible strain on Pete. 
 
[Dan Matovina]  Pete was so grateful for the opportunity they gave him and his band and he wrote a song called Apple Of My Eye. How many artists write a song about their record label? Usually when they're about leave, they're angry, but that was Pete Ham. 
 
 #apple of my eye 

[Narrator]  There were changes too in Pete's personal life. After his relationship with Beverly ended, he had several girlfriends. He was a man who very much needed to be in love. Finally, he got together with Anne, and she soon discovered she was pregnant. 
 
[Bob]  This was heaven for Pete, you know, family man, and suddenly he was going to have his family and he'd lived for all these years, you know, in essentially a bedsit in Golders Green. I mean, that's what it was, living on very little money, even during all the successes. 
 
 #matted spam 

[Narrator]  Pete set up a home with Anne in Weybridge, Surrey, just a mile down the road from Tommy Evans and his wife Marianne.  
 
 #matted spam 

[Anne Herriot]  He was just a lovely, lovely guy. Beautiful nature, you couldn't have asked for a better partner, he was so kind, loving. He wanted to be left alone to go out and play his music but he was... You have to be hard to be in the music business and Pete was not like that at all. 
 
[Tag Hall]  Pete was very happy, you know, he wanted to do loads of stuff with the house. Everything seemed OK until the cheques stopped coming.

Petera and Luca William Ham-Eddie
new_Petera BBC
Although I didn't know my dad, I still feel very close to him through all of his music and everything my mum tells me about him. Many people don't get hear things about their father after they go, at least I've got his music and I'm just very, very proud. 
 
new_Ron BBC
Most of the stories you ever hear about the band really are all pretty sombre but there was so much good stuff and happiness as well, it wasn't all doom and gloom. 
 
new_Dai BBC
Before we moved away, he had a meeting with all the parents and said that he can't promise anything but hard work and blood, sweat and tears, I think he called it. Churchill's... 
 
new_Bob BBC
Even after this terrible event, Polley was still trying to make money on it somehow, you know. 
 
new_Bill Collins BBC
Stan Polley said, "I know all the tricks, but if you play ball, I'll play ball, and we'll all get along fine, and we'll all finish up millionaires."

One's...one's bad enough. ................Two's too many. 
 
new_Nicky Bell BBC
Bill kind of got out of his depth. He did things that he thought were right for the band, but...they weren't. 
 
new_Beverley BBC
I said, "Look, I don't mind, I'm smiling." And Pete said, "Your mouth's smiling, but your eyes are sad." 
 
new_Marianne BBC
Many times Tommy said, "I want to be there where he is." 
 
new_Anne Herriot BBC
You have to be hard to be in the music business and Pete was not like that at all. 
 
new_John Ham BBC
I said, "Oh, part of the act, do you do a comedy number?" Pete said, "No, those are my stage shoes. They're the only ones I've got." 
 
new_Deke Leonard BBC
It is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, I think. 
 
new_Matovina BBC
Come And Get It on Top Of The Pops, I think that was the peak time for Pete and the rest of the members, the smile, the excitement is written all over their faces. It is pure ecstasy.
