Thanks to the community here, I have now seen this strong effort by the BBC.

I concur that this may be the last time many of the participants will be interviewed.

I must give this particular one hour film top marks for
a skilful editing job, carefully hitting all the essential facts while fleshing out some of the personal side of Buddy the human being, as well as explaining his unique contributions to the evolution of popular music.

I predict PBS will make a deal with the BBC to air this one as part of their American Masters series.

I noticed a small number of still photos that were new to me, always a bonus.

I appreciated the comments by all who made the final cut, even Dion! It seems he has re thought his coin toss story, or the producers did him a favour by not including it.

There was a clear choice to only utilize the living for the commentary and to tell the essential story of Buddy's life.

That meant the exclusion of Bob, Niki, Joe B.,Waylon, Tommy, Carl, Norman, Mr. and Mrs. Holly, and Bill Griggs.

We may be able to surmise why Peggy Sue was not heard from
in this doc.

I had fleeting hopes the never shared 1958 Christmas in Lubbock footage might have made it's public debut, or at least a brief portion of it.

Even so, I have to say thumbs way up to the ever studious and respectful BBC.
