CBC-TV Documentaries

CBC-TV has a couple of very interesting documentaries airing on Thursday nights for the next few weeks.  Each of these programs take a look back at the Canadian music scene in the 1970s and 1980s.  This Beat Goes On focuses on the ground-breaking era of great sounds, from glam and progressive rock to punk and reggae of the 1970s.  From Gordon Lightfoot and Burton Cummings to Trooper and Loverboy, by the end of the decade the Can-rock revolution had arrived.

The second documentary, Rise Up puts the spotlight on the 1980s, an era of big hair and bigger shoulder pads.  MTV and MuchMusic have arrived, giving homegrown artists the ability to take off internationally. The late 80s sees the rise of some diverse new sounds, including the alt-country of our own Blue Rodeo and Cowboy Junkies and the hip hop beats of Maestro and Michie Mee.

Follow and join in on the conversation about these documentaries right now in the BlueRodeo.com forum.   And check your local CBC-TV (and CBC Newsworld) schedules for dates and air times.
