4/4. American-music enthusiast Mark Lamarr tackles simpleton-and-shotgun stereotypes of redneck country music in this series devoted to the sounds of the mountains, the hillbilly, the banjo and the moonshine still.
He concludes with a look at Texas soul - the sounds of Austin and the jazz-country-folk-dance-flavoured western swing - and goes in search of the last cowboy songs. And there's a segment on the music that emerged from the itinerant camps made famous in John Steinbeck 's prize-winning Depression-era novel The Grapes of Wrath.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
