Default Sounbreaking Series PBS

I missed the first two episodes of this series which premiered this month on PBS...has anyone been watching it?

Gord, Barry and Mike are listed on the website as "featured artists."

OK here again is my threepennyworth basically from an old corfid thread in which my last posting was at:
http://corfid.com/vbb/showpost.php?p=189371&postcount=4
I refered to a web page:-
http://soundbreaking.com/featured-artists/
that includes Barry Mike and Gordon
I actually said but never heard back
according to comments on the YouTube page for that trailer the airing of the series has already begun on Sky TV
Having poured over the website I have sent the following message on the website's contact form. I'll report back if and when I get a reply.
Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music
As an avid fan of the iconic Canadian folk singer/ songwriter and poet Gordon lightfoot I was most interested to see his name plus two of his band , namely Barry Keane and Michael Heffernan listed on your page listing the artists featured in the series but on the individual episode song lists no Lightfoot song title is shown nor is there any other mention of Gordon in the full description of each episode.
Yet I clearly remember him and some of his band members somre years ago mentioning their filmed appearances for this project. Did they end up on the editing floor or what??

there is now a twitter page with videos but no mention of Gord on:-
https://twitter.com/hashtag/Soundbreaking?src=hash
but it doth claim
''#Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music. Coming to @PBS on November 14, 2016"
there are what are presumably complete playlists for all 8 episodes on the PBS website
at
http://www.pbs.org/soundbreaking/music-playlists/
but there is nothing listed by Gord so maybe whatever was recorded did end up on the editing room floor after all Shame!!
