Sounds cool; anything with Bill Bailey is win

Looks like it'll be pretty interesting, although if it's yentob I doubt it will go into a lot of rock or metal once he gets to the more modern phase of it.

Unfortunately I'm don't think you'll be able to watch it due to the unique way in which the BBC is funded...

...you could give the BBC iPlayer a try but I'm pretty sure it's region-locked.

reality tv is terrible. some of the bbc stuff can be good, though, especially on bbc 2 or 4. edit: the real hustle is excellent, i think it's on bbc 3. depends which channels you get, i guess.

Life on Mars was amazing, I'm not sure how it'll translate though.

Dr Who rocks - which one is it?

I'll absolutely be watching this though, even if I have to actually leave the computer and watch it in my own room...

Anyway, just watched the show; it was interesting but I was mildly disappointed with the lack of jazz but it's an interesting little history lesson and I'm looking forward to the next one more.

I'm looking forward to next week too...electricity ftw

Having said that the footage of guys like Django and Segovia was great to see, and it looks like there's a good spread in terms of people they've interviewed.

I want an acoustic guitar that can put out matches dammit

I wouldn't have even dared put a match next to that guitar. Imagine all the Brazillian rosewood, gone!!!


I seriously wouldn't mind one of those guitars, all the best acoustic guitars are made by rednecks with no internet access.

Ahh, I'd forgotten about those bit, yeah, the Segovia footage was good but I'd seen most, if not all of the Django stuff before. Always a joy to watch the man play though.

I also want one of those acoustics though; such brilliant tone! *drool*

Mildly unimpressed by the fact that they skipped basically everything that happened after punk with the exception of 5 seconds of Vai and a whole lot of Morrisey.

Just caught bits and bobs in it, seemed mildly interesting. Needs more Bailey!

But really, it's a decent insight into the history of guitar. Not bad!

While we're on the subject of guitars on TV in the UK:

Is anyone watching the "Guitar heroes on the BBC" thing on BBC4? If so can you tell me who the guy is with the accoustic and the huge amounts of delay and all that? He's awesome but I missed his name...

agreed. also it jumped about a bit from one genre/time to another. but was still pretty good, was impressed that they had vai.

i saw a bit of that guitar heroes thing, but i didn't see the bit you were talking about, sorry.

They also basically missed out the whole "shred" thing which I wasn't impressed by at all.

Oh well, to the iPlayer!
