A lot depends on the likely audience - what sort of range of background and interests, how many etc. Half an hour won't be near enoough for some people - but may bore the pants off others! Starting with the 1954 definition and then setting about it with a musical and cultural pick and shovel (or a scalpel) is certainly one way of putting a shape on it.
