    Several Years ago we had broadcast in Australia a TV series called "the History of Rock and Roll". I think it was BBC (UK) production but it might not have been. It covered Rock and Roll right from early Scottish/Irish/African origins to the 80's. I have been trying to get it on DVD and have no luck. Has anyone come across this series on DVD and if you have, where can I get a copy?

    I remember watching those...

    would the ABC shop have a copy of the show?....

    I'm watching a music show on SBS now where a guy goes to places and local artists play in a London cab...

    Nashville today.... cool..:)

    Nope, it was none of the above. I have tried the ABC shop etc and nothing. Keep the suggestions coming, got to get there eventually - I hope.

    Nope again, thanks, but this programme would have been pre 2000. The Rock Britannia looks interesting though, might give it a look anyway.

    Thanks for the idea but it wasn't Quincy Jones.
