 Starting Tuesday 16 May on PBS and continuing 2 more weeks, the series, American Epic, traces the beginnings of the non-classical music recording industry. Will feature many types of music including blues, gospel, country, Cajun, Hawaiian, Native American, and others.
I believe that it will also show on BBC4 starting May 21.
Check local listings for times in your area.

There will be a further documentary series, American Epic Sessions, in June.

There's a book available, along with a 5 CD box set.
