Crossfire Hurricane 9 p.m., HBO2

This movie, on the occasion of the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary, looks back at the band from 1962-1978. And it is definitely worthwhile. It doesn’t offer a chronological history; it’s a more visceral documentary featuring a lot of great backstage footage and really well-edited concert sequences. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and the rest of the Stones make present-day audio comments, but all the visuals are from their prime.

Moonshiners 10 p.m., Discovery

There is nothing new about people building stills in order to make their own spirits. There is something new about doing it on television, and I’m not talking “The Beverly Hillbilles” or “M*A*S*H.” After all, it’s illegal. This show follows moonshiners in Appalachia, as they make booze from June to October and try to avoid explosions and busts. Why aren’t the show’s stars arrested? Because maybe they’re not actually making moonshine and it’s a dramatization?
