 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.

"(Brian) got into this really touching music with songs like 'In My Room', and 'Good Vibrations' was amazing. The melodies are so beautiful, almost perfect. I began to realize he was one of the most gifted writers of our generation." - Paul Simon
