Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On will explore who Amy really was through those who knew her best, shining a light on parts of her life that have, to date, not been heard about.
The story will be primarily told by Amy's mother, Janis, who rarely speaks publicly about her daughter.
She has decided to make the new documentary as she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, a condition which threatens to strip her of her memories of Amy.
Aided by friends, family and Amy's loved ones, the documentary will piece together a side of Amy that is rarely seen, and will be a powerful and sensitive account of one of Britain's best-loved and greatly-missed musical talents, offering a new female-driven interpretation of her life, her loves and her legacy.
Amy's impressive career will also be celebrated across the BBC with a selection of content and musical performances on television, iPlayer and BBC Sounds.
BBC Radio will also celebrate the life and legacy of the singer - Radio 6 Music will commemorate the anniversary with an Artist Collection, a selection of programming from across the BBC celebrating Amy's music.
Radio 2 is planning a documentary about Amy's influence on the next generation of female singer-songwriters, plus a special archive collection of her performances at the BBC.
Radio 1 will be taking a look at the life and career of the singer, revisiting some of her most memorable live performances and introducing a new audience to her music in a one-hour documentary special.
Speaking about the venture, Janis explained: "I don't feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy."
Max Gogarty and Rachel Davies, Commissioning Editors, said: "Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On promises to be a celebratory and intimate portrayal of one of the brightest musical talents the UK has ever seen.
"Whilst being a celebration of her musical genius and featuring rare and unheard performances, it will also offer a reinterpretation of the prevailing narrative around her rise and fall, told by those closest to her."
Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On will air later this year on BBC Two.
