George Martin's Soundbreaking Coming To TV This Fall

PBS have announced that they will be broadcasting the last project produced by legendary Beatles music producer Sir George Martin in November and they are giving SXSW attendees an early look at the series this week.

The eight part series Soundbreaking: Stories From The Cutting Edge Of Recorded Music will be broadcast on PBS stations across the U.S. on November 14-23, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

The series will feature appearances from more than 150 music artists, including interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Barry Gibb, Roger Daltrey, Lindsey Buckingham, Joni Mitchell, Tom Petty and more.

Martin died on March 8 at the age of 90. But prior to his death he made the following comments about the series, "Music is the only common thread and universal language that binds us together regardless of race, nationality, age or income.

"And, recorded music is how we experience it and what makes it accessible. Soundbreaking afforded me the opportunity to tell the story of the creative process of so many of the artists I have worked with throughout my life."

The first two episodes of the series will be screened at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas as part of the Festival's "24 Beats Per Second" line-up. Watch the trailer for the series here.
