Edge features in a BBC documentary this weekend, 'The Story of the Guitar'.

If you can pick up the BBC, you'll find Edge being interviewed by Alan Yentob this Sunday evening at 10.20pm - UK time.

'Since the Fifties, the guitar has been a symbol of sexiness, freedom, adventure, youth and individuality. Those who master this six-stringed wonder are regarded as guitar heroes, or even gods. It has always been a popular instrument, as opposed to its courtly cousin, the lute, but it was only in the Fifties, with the coming of rock 'n' roll, and the Sixties, in the wake of The Beatles, that it has captured the popular imagination. The guitar has been the agent of social change and juvenile delinquency, anti-war protest and anarchy, peace and love and violence.'
