The documentary was originally released in 1992 and is thought to have been commissioned by the band's label Rough Trade to be given out to the press to support the release of their 'Best Of' compilation.

The promo has been released by Rhino, the UK label which is handling the re-issuing of the Smiths' entire back catalogue.

The reissues, which have been put together under the supervision of guitarist Johnny Marr, have been digitally remastered from their original tapes. The whole collection is due for release on September 26.

The albums set for release include the band's four studio LPS, 1984's self-titled album, 1985's 'Meat Is Murder', 1986's 'The Queen Is Dead' and their final studio album 'Strangeways, Here We Come', which came out in 1987.

The band's 1988 live album 'Rank' and compilations 'Hatful Of Hollow', which came out in 1984, 1987's 'The World Won’t Listen' and 'Louder Than Bombs' are also being reissued.
