Anyone with access to the "Trio" TV channel may find this interesting......or not.
They'll be airing the 4 hour documentry "Lost Highway:The history of American Country" on July 5th and 6th,at 8 p.m. EST.
I've not seen it yet,but I understand it ran in Britain last month.
Perhaps some of our Mudcat friends from across the pond could enlighten us with a review.

Yep, It was fine. They did seem to miss ol' George Jones out pretty much. Watch it and give me your opinion.

I watched every program from the Carter family through Willy Nelson to the girls, and onto Earle and Yokum, all watched over by people like Emmalou and Dolly. Well it was a very memorable experience, so I taped it to show to my friends, I learned a lot and thoroughly recommend it to y'all. It filled a large hole in my folk knowledge. -you know I honestly think, and I say to people in the "folk" scene in the UK -this is the folk music of today, and do you know they all look askance,- shows how much they all know.

Hi,
Television New Zealand played the video late last year and I taped half of it. Missed the rest. Do you have any information about the producer or who I could contact to get a copy compatible with TV in NZ

I think you'll find the first hour the best - there was a lot of interesting old footage.

as I remember the last hour was about how wonderful garth Brooks is even though he's sold millions more records than anybody else that doesn't make him a bad person.

the trouble about getting old is, I don't find any of his songs as memorable as oh lonesome me or jambalaya - anybody else have the same trouble?

I have the book that this show is based on in my library of books on country music history. It is one of the best.

I will be watching for this show.

Thought this worth refreshing.
They'll be rebroadcasting the entire 4 hour series on Trio tonight, 7/25, from 7 pm. to 11 pm. est. USA.

Well worth the price of admission.

this sounds like good stuff, I missed it but I did see the Hank Wangford "A to Z of Country Music" which was very good and is well worth another airing, come on Channel Four, get it out again please....
