Bullfrog Jones History of Country Music: BBC2 (31) RE: History of Country Music: BBC2 25 Feb 03


Alinact -- two different things. Down From The Mountain was a gathering of the O Brother performers in concert. The first episode of Lost Highway was also called Down From The Mountain, presumably partly to reflect the O Bro influence on the renaissance in the music and to indicate the original roots in Mountain music.
There's obviously a little pocket of country music fans at the Beeb (Top of The Pops 2 often features country, for example). Maybe it's worth checking production credits on the recent British folk music programmes and targetting the programme-makers themselves to ask why they don't make more.
Interesting point of synchronicity --- Lost Highway was made by BBC Bristol, and the place where Ralph Peer recorded Jimmie Rodgers and The Carter Family? Bristol, Tennessee.
