The exhibition dedicated to Paul Weller and The Jam

As one of Britain's biggest rock stars, Paul Weller's music is well known to millions. His private life has always been something of a mystery but that's all about to change with an exhibition at Somerset House. It charts his journey from a schoolboy in Woking to frontman of the Jam. And it's got the personal touch because it's curated by his sister. She took Ria Chatterjee for a look round.
