NYC PREMIERE Produced in association with The Beatles’ legendary producer, the late Sir George Martin, this upcoming PBS series ably takes on the daunting challenge of chronicling the history of music recording and producing. Organized thematically, each episode features scores of original interviews with some of the most celebrated recording artists of all time, from Paul McCartney and Roger Waters to Adele and Questlove, as it offers a behind-the-scenes look at the interaction between performer and technology in creating unforgettable music. Moving between past and present, Soundbreaking tells the stories behind the sounds that have defined generations. DOC NYC will screen two episodes of this eight-part series.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Encore screening (on 11/17)  is a sneak preview of Episodes 3 and 4 of the PBS series.
