"Popular music is now an essential part of our daily lives. Yet we know comparatively little about it - where it came from, how it developed, how it has influenced or been influenced by social change. Today the popular music industry controls billiions of dollars: it has a greater revenue than the combined efforts of cinema, theatre, sport and all the other entertainment industries put together. Yet that industry depends, ultimately, on the creative talents of a group of remarkable individuals. The story of popular music, therefore, is a story of the struggle of these individuals to survive the demands of an avaricious, thieving and capricious industry. This critically acclaimed TV series, originally broadcast worldwide between 1976 and 1980, is featured here in its entirety, encompassing ragtime, blues, jazz, vaudeville, the musical, folk, swing, country and western, rock 'n' roll and beyond."--Container.

This series was informative, engaging and at times very disturbing. A musician's life is not simple, but to the listener the history behind his/her/their creations is often obscure. This look at the evolution of popular music has some surprises, many light moments and many more that are sobering. It is well worth the time invested - 5 DVDs.

Not enough music, , to much blah, blah. And many people are not identified with their names under their face. Sure, we know the big stars but many of the people in this are not recognizable.
