A TV series that’s currently airing takes an unprecedented look at the evolution of the recording industry, largely through the eyes of the late Sir George Martin, who produced much of the Beatles catalog along with the work of countless other top artists.
Martin’s swan song to the music industry is “Soundbreaking: Stories From the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music,” currently airing on PBS. Martin, who died in March at age 90, is considered one of the industry’s greatest innovators and was an executive producer on the eight-part series.
Jeff Dupre, a producer and director on the series, talked with TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin about George Martin’s legacy and the story behind the series. Click here to read her interview with Dupre and to see a trailer for the series.
“Soundbreaking,” which premiered last week, continues tonight, Monday, Nov. 21, on PBS.
