A documentary celebrating the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary is to air on HBO, home of The Sopranos and The Wire, this autumn.

In a statement, HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo said: "This is all done as part of the band's 50th anniversary. This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members – Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron – as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

By the time we're done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they've ever done."
