Thought this deserved a thread of its own, if folk think it should get moved to another sub-forum let a mod know. @Ron Nasty, hope you dont mind me quoting you, saves me having to write my own. 

Ron Nasty said here
George Martin's final project was an upcoming eight-part television series for PBS called SOUNDBREAKING: Songs from the Cutting Edge of Music.

The series was his idea, and he was heavily involved in it. He said of it before his passing:

Music is the only common thread and universal language that binds us together regardless of race, nationality, age or income.

And, recorded music is how we experience it and what makes it accessible. Through the production of "SOUNDBREAKING," I was afforded the opportunity to tell the story of the creative process of so many of the artists I have worked with throughout my life.

Obviously, his work with The Beatles will be a big part of it.

No broadcast dates are yet fixed, but I would expect it to appear later this year as it sounds as if it's more-or-less finished.

Clips are up and it looks awesome. Scheduled for November 2016.

Better get shown in the UK.

Examiner has an article on the series including broadcast info

“Soundbreaking: Stories From The Cutting Edge Of Recorded Music,”... will be broadcast on most PBS stations weekdays from Nov. 14-23 10 p.m. ET, the network announced Monday. (Check local listings.) And the first two of its eight one-hour episodes, the last project produced by Sir George Martin, will premiere at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas with screenings on March 14, 16 and 17 as part of the Festival’s “24 Beats Per Second” line-up.

Also from the same article.

Some of the highlights in the series include George Martin and the Beatles'groundbreaking work in the studio; Phil Spector's rise as the first 'rock star producer'; Paul Epworth's collaboration with Adele on "Rolling in the Deep"; Stevie Wonder embrace of the synthesizer and his break with Motown; Michael Jackson and Madonna and their work with music video; how Miles Davis and Marvin Gaye stretched the boundaries of LPs; sampling gives rise to hip-hop.

“Music is the only common thread and universal language that binds us together regardless of race, nationality, age or income. And, recorded music is how we experience it and what makes it accessible,” Sir George Martin said of the project prior to his passing. “Soundbreaking” afforded me the opportunity to tell the story of the creative process of so many of the artists I have worked with throughout my life.”

Don't know about other countries, but in Australia, it's already started broadcasting. They've aired two epsiodes so far. For some reason, they started with the third episode before going back to the first. Both episodes are brilliant and I highly recommend the series. However, it should be noted that while it was created by George Martin, this is not a George Martin/Beatles-centred documentary.

The first episode talks about the role of the producer in creating music. It starts with a general introduction before taking a chronological look at some of the key producers of the Rock era (Sam Phillips, George Martin, Phil Spector, Sly Stone, Dr Dre, Rick Rubin) and how they influenced the music of the artists they produced.

The third episode focuses on the singer. This episode is a bit disjointed as it jumps between newer and older singers. However, it is still an interesting episode.

This series is being broadcasted in the Netherlands as well. It's on every Saturday evening at 10.30 pm. Tonight episode 7 will be on, so next week it's already time for the last one! I've watched most of it, but I did miss a few episodes. Brilliant series though, will definitely watch the ones I've missed as well.

First episode is really boring. 50 min. (or so) of people talking about how great all the great producers in history were...a-hard-days-night-paul-10
