Hi folks

I have posted this before, but since this thread is spot on...

I have always wanted an original broadcast version of the mid 1980's documentary that was part of the long running BBC
Arena series. I believe it was approx one hour long. I viewed it in it's original form at the home of Bill Griggs
during one of his Buddy Holly conventions in Lubbock.
This particular documentary was used by Paul McCartney to become the basis of his "Real Buddy Holly Story" doc
which is not difficult to obtain.

The other TV doc that would be GREAT to see once again, complete and unedited, is an American P.B.S. documentary that was done to highlight the late '70's reunion of the Crickets that was arranged by Bill Griggs. This PBS program "may" have been called "reminiscing", and it seems to me was
a production of the BOSTON? PBS affiliate.
It is unique in that it has some camera time with Norman Petty where he defends his co-opting of writing credits, even on tunes such as That'll be The Day.

Lastly, I'm not sure if it is still on youtube, but a young German guy visited Lubbock in the 1970's and interviewed many important Holly/crickets folks, including family members. His efforts form a sort of travelogue/doc for fellow Holly fans.
For a completely amateur effort, it offers some
excellent insight and is well worth the time.
