BBC 4 tv are showing an old Arena documentary about Woody tonight. Starting time, I think is 23-30.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this is a very good programme and well worth watching. However, I'd have thought that British tv could have pushed the boat out a little further than that.

Woody has been mythologized and much of the reports on him are suspect.

Sez oo? There has been a lot of work done on Woody over the past thirty years or so, and a lot of demythologising.

For examples of demythologising try reading the following:-

Ed Cray. Rambling Man.
Joe Klein. Woody Guthrie; a life.
Will Kaufmann. American Radical.
Robert Santelli/Emily Davidson. Hard Travelin'.

You'll find precious little mythologising in any of that lot.

Woody Guthrie

Duration: 1 hour, 5 minutes

With Jack Elliot, Pete Seeger, Alan Lomax, Arlo Guthrie and Arthur Stern.

Woody at 100

Sat 14 Jul 2012, 20:00 (BST)

The folk-singer and radical song-writer Woody Guthrie was born 100 years ago today - July 14th 1912. His biographer Joe Klein celebrates the centenary with a road trip, listening along the way to a few of Woody's 1,000 songs, to his recorded interviews and to the voices of his friends and family.

Joe Klein is also the author of 'Primary Colours' and a correspondent for Time Magazine, so he's taking the political temperature in some of the battleground states as the 2012 Presidential election campaign warms up.

In a journey that takes him from his Washington bureau to Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Charleston West Virginia and beyond, Joe listens to the concerns of the voters. He discovers that Woody's messages to America, written and sung during the depression and World War 2, can still cut to the bone.
