KCET Celebrates Top Music Makers in Three Riveting Documentaries
contributions of Amy Winehouse, Sir George Martin and Lindsey Buckingham are
explored in special films throughout September.
BURBANK, CA - 29, 2013 - Grammy® award winning singer Amy Winehouse, English
record producer Sir George Martin and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham are prolific music
makers who have had an enduring impact on the musical landscape and have helped
shape the work of today's top artists. This month, KCET will explore their legacies
in a series of groundbreaking documentaries.
Produced By George Martin airs Thursday, Sept. 5 at 9:35 p.m.
(Also airs on KCETLink 28.2
on Sept. 7 at 10 p.m., Sept. 8 at 2 a.m. and Sept. 11 at Midnight and 4 a.m.):
Viewers get an in-depth look at the
life of Sir
George Martin, Britain's most celebrated record producer. While Martin is
perhaps best known for his work with The Beatles, he has enjoyed a long and
varied career in a variety of musical genres, including the classical world.
This intriguing look at Martin's life at home and at work, features numerous
classic clips of the artists he has worked with and new interviews featuring
Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Michael Palin, Jeff Beck, Rolf Harris, Cilla
Black, Millicent Martin and Bernard Cribbins.
Amy Winehouse at Her Best: When Amy Came to Dingle airs Thursday, Sept. 12 at 9:35 p.m.
(Also airs on KCETLink 28.2 on Sept. 7 at 10
p.m. and Sept. 8 at 2 a.m.)
On Dec. 3, 2006 a young, relatively
unknown singer named Amy Winehouse appeared in the fifth season of "Other
Voices," a music series filmed every winter in the small Irish fishing village
of Dingle in County Kerry. This is the story of that once-in-a-lifetime show.
It integrates live performance with an intimate interview along with excerpts
from performances of musicians who influenced her. Recorded before her meteoric
rise to fame peaked, this program is about the music and the spirit, not the
madness that ultimately claimed her life five years later on July 23, 2011.
Lindsey Buckingham: Songs from the Small Machine airs Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9:35
Filmed at an exclusive show at the Saban
Theatre in Beverly Hills in April 2011, the film captures famed rocker Lindsey
Buckingham showcasing tracks from his album "Seeds We Sow" as well as
classic songs from his solo career and Fleetwood Mac. His distinctive guitar
picking style and instantly recognizable voice combine with his dynamic
on-stage presence to deliver a show that brings the audience to their feet and
leaves them calling for more. Following a solo acoustic performance, Lindsey is
then joined by his band - including Neale Haywood on guitar, Walfredo Reyas on
drums and Brett Tuggle on bass and keyboards - to rock their way through the
rest of the set.
