[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.

[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.

 #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.

[Narrator]  This is the story of Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  In a business where tales of rip-offs and shattered dreams are ten a penny, the story of Badfinger is the stuff of legend. 

 #no matter what 
 
[Deke Leonard]  It is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, I think.
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  In their short time together, Badfinger made some truly great music. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Nicky Bell]  They were a highly respected band from the masters at that time. 
 
 #without you 
 
[Narrator]  The band's leader and creative driving force was Pete Ham. Together with band-mate Tommy Evans, he wrote the classic Without You. 
 
 #without you 
 
[Tag Hall]  Many people I have worked with since, guys who write songs that are very successful, to a man they all say, "I wish I'd have written it." 
 
[Ron]  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. 
 
 #joker 
 
[Beverley Tucker]  He kind of felt as though it was his duty to cheer everyone up, be the joker. 

 #joker 
 
[Tag Hall]  He cared as much for people around him, more so than he did for himself. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Narrator]  The band started out in the mid-1960s, they originally called themselves the Iveys after IVEY Place in Swansea where they rehearsed. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Ron]  Peter was born and brought up on Townhill in Swansea. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Deke Leonard]  The Swansea scene was like Liverpool without the record interest. You could play seven nights a week, twice on Sunday if you wanted to, the scene vibrated with energy. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Dai]  We would play all South Wales down to Pembroke, Pembroke town, Haverfordwest up to Cardiff, Newport, up the valleys, then the bigger bands would come in and we would support them. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Dai / Ron]  We supported The Who. The Yardbirds, the Merseybeats. The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd at Swansea University. The only ones we didn't support where the likes of the Beatles and the Stones, I suppose.

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...

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."

Bill kind of got out of his depth. He did things that he thought were right for the band, but...they weren't.

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.
