Rock is well represented by Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger and John Lennon, contemporary pop by Pete music4.jpgDocherty whilst Les Blank’s intimate documentaries recount the history of American folk music - Lightnin’ Hopkins for blues, some true American originals, the Cajuns of south-west Louisiana, Tex-Mex Nortena amongst others. The Dolmetsch Story tells of the famous family who dedicated their lives to educating the public on the joys of the recorder musical instrument. Desmond Dekker and Milly appear in Horace Ove’s Reggae, a documentary which combines the history of Caribbean immigrants to the UK in the 1950s with a reggae concert. Finally, classical music is not forgotten with Felix Greene’s extraordinary film of the Peking Symphony Orchestra.
