Subject: RE: Carter Family on PBS Amer. Exp. 9 May 05
I guess an hour is short... somehow, I was disappointed by this program. I thought the use of re-enactments was a little weird -- at the beginning it was hard to tell what was real footage, and what was re-created. I suppose for those who hadn't read the book the family story was interesting, but I felt like I wanted to hear more about the music (I'm not sure what, though, something more concrete about its context and continuing impact?).
