Thread Name: BBC TV Guitar Series
Subject: RE: BBC TV Guitar Series
Bert Weedon was great.Also a lot of other priceless stuff However,I feel the ridiculous bits of "old film"(eg of Greek gods etc were a total waste of time. And, more crucially, a waste of money. Just think how much of the budget went on those films. That could have been spent on interviewing a few more great guitarists and showing us clips of them, (it was meant to be a documentary about the guitar wasn't it?).
Basically it was the usual "celebrity finding out stuff" format for documentaries, whereas I have always preferred the "somebody who knows stuff to start with" type of thing.
