Host Yehudi Menuhin continues to examine music's place in western society in this installment of the series Music of Man. Technology introduced the transistor radio and color TV, bringing more new music to the masses. The availability of music on inexpensive long-play records helped to popularize many genres, including jazz, rock & roll, folk, and punk music. Despite the proliferation of popular music, classical pieces were still in demand, and the unique works of Bartok are examined in this film.
