New BBC guitar documentary series starts on Sunday

Ooh, exciting. Go forth and set your recording devices, as the BBC is showing a new three-part documentary series called Imagine - The Story Of The Guitar. The first of the hour-long programmes airs on Sunday 5 October at 10:40.

Presented by Alan Yentob, the series charts the evolution of the guitar from its origins as a humble street instrument to it becoming a cultural icon of social rebellion. Naturally, a host of big-name guitarists are interviewed along the way, ranging from Bert Weedon to BB King.
