I set my DVD Timer to record it but it didn't work for some reason.
Yes I went onto the BBC Breakfast site and there is nothing there, sometimes they have weekly highlights.
The iPlayer never shows BBC Breakfast

I have though found it on YOUTUBE - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxAtVx_G ... r_embedded
It not the best conversation piece I've ever seen and the BBC's use of the video clip didn't really work only showing Matraca.
No mention of the tour dates.
Matraca looked beautiful for so early in the day though she seemed a bit nervous.

Did anyone see the Troubadour prog on BBC 4 last night? Mostly focusing on Carole King & James Taylor. I very much like those two but was not too keen on the way the prog was done
Far too much of David Crosby rabbiting on. He always seems like an idiot to me when I hear him talking. :shock:
I would have prefered more of the music. James taylor looks a bit dodgy these days, but when you hear his songs you realise what a fine songwriter he was
Carole King still looks pretty good, & she has an amazing body of work ( & I did mean body of work rather than amazing body :oops: It was hard to tell about the later :o

WEDNESDAY 23rd NOVEMBER: "WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?USA"(10:45PM BBC2) has as it's subject Ashley Judd, daughter of Naomi & sister of Wynonna, Not sure if The Judds make a singining appearance, but Ashleys line is traced back to her Grandfather X10 who sailed to the USA from York in England in 1620.

Reiterate that, half a mile a day is excellent.

It's tagged as 'new' in the Radio Times and described as "A history of country music from the 1920s to the present day, charting how the genre became part of the soundtrack of working-class life in America's southern states". Gotta be a fairly serious programme - it describes CM as a 'genre'!! :lol:

Does that mean no rednecks or hillbillies then? Can't have a serious country music programme without them!

"THe Joy Of Country"
"Music from honkytonks & bluegrass to Hollywood hillbillies & rhinestone cowboys, this musical history covers more ground than anyone can decently expect from an hourlong film" accorting to RT. It is also "considered & concise, it delivers plenty of social context along with acerbic throwaway lines"
Acerbic throwaway lines????
