Re: UK Jemsiters! Turn on BBC 4 tonight!!
They did, it featured items on Fender, Rickenbacker (frying pan) Gibson, lap steel playing and resonators.
They went from Robert Johnson via Charley Christian, T-Bone Walker to BB King as well as Les Paul and Hendrix, but also Hank Marvin, Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour.
It also featured interviews and performances with those still alive, inc 91 year-old Les Paul and 83yr B.B.King, sometimes showing off their equipment (Gilmour's strat #0001, some dude who "stole" Hank Marvin's red strat, Knopfler's '58 LP, Hendrix' burnt strat.)
