Docs That Rock

The Man Comes Around (again)


Probably the best general doc series on TV (as its been for many years) is PBS’ POV. The 21st season kicks off tonight with the reairing of a classic: 1969’s Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music (embed troubles but click the link for a preview.) The behind the scenes doc captures Cash post-Folsom with fans, casually hanging out offstage and visits to the sharecropping farms where he grew up. It also features performances with new bride June Carter Cash and a duet with Bob Dylan. Its the real life Walk the Line. Other than that, this season’s other music doc on POV is another encore of Lomax The Songhunter.
