The Band that Wouldn't Die

In brief:
One-hour ESPN documentary by Barry Levinson about the Baltimore Colts marching band which stayed the course even after the football team left Baltimore.

Very evocative. Too bad there wasn't more time to actually see and hear the band, but this was a one-hour (tv time) documentary. Too bad Barry Levinson wasn't there for the Q & A but the assembled producers did a creditable job. This is what documentaries are all about. Great story. Great characters. Emotional story. Highly recommended when broadcast on ESPN on October 13th this year. You don't have to know anything about football to be moved.
