Focus On... Dolly Parton
She's 71, born the 4th of 12 in a dirt-poor part of Tennessee and so on. Hard to know what could come from this that was remarkable for being unfamiliar. Dollywood got its mentions, her friendship with Kenny Rogers is apparently stronger than ever, and her Glastonbury turn got its due, as well as her friendship to Billy Ray Cyrus, the identity of the real Jolene, and so on. Still, the music is outstanding.

Brian Johnson's Life on the Road: Dolly Parton
Brian went to Nashville to talk to one of country's biggest stars. She talked of her poor background, and Brian empathised. She said her husband loves AC/DC. She worked with Porter Waggoner for 5 years and then moved on. Elvis wanted to record I Will Always Love You, but when the Colonel got heavy about rights, she turned him down. She wrote Jolene on the same night she wrote IWALY.  She's been married 52 years, and devoted to her family, even with no children of her own. Dollywood was a way to repay her hometown, been open 32 years. Her touring life revived in 2008 when she started touring the world again. She felt her Glastonbury turn was a triumph. She's working on the music for a Jennifer Aniston film with roots in her own story. Brian shared a country tune of his own.

The Golden Hour - Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers
Curious need to put two big enough stars together, even with a few duets to work with. Some predictable hits were included (hers more than his, though maybe that's just relative), some surprising omissions, and interesting inclusions.

National Enquirer Investigates: Dolly Parton
A somewhat half-hearted attempt to recount her story with any sense of outrage. Her plastic surgery is hardly a revelation. Her poor upbringing has led to her giving back to her community by building them a theme park to work in. She may have had a fling with Burt Reynolds and Kenny Rogers, but she otherwise seems to have stayed happily married for decades. The odd failure on television hasn't taken much shine off her bubble.

Dolly Parton: Platinum Blonde
From 2003, a career lookback on the country megastar from humble roots. The one defining characteristic is her brains - not merely for songwriting & singing, but a great business savvy. Even her theme park, Dollywood, appears to exist less to feed an ego than as a job creation scheme. Her musical uncle and Porter Waggoner appear to have given her the greatest boosts on the way up, and she remains on good terms with most people she's come across.

The South Bank Show Originals: Dolly Parton
Bragg chatted to her in 1999, and was impressed by the reality beneath the fakery. How Dollywood is a vehicle to allow her to give back to the impoverished area she grew up in. Maintains family ties and has a matriarchal benevolence. Cerys Matthews was the obligatory random approver. They won't be making shows about her any time soon.

Sisters In Country: Dolly, Linda & Emmylou
Linda Ronstadt met Emmylou Harris in 1973, and they became friends, and shared a love for the music of Dolly Parton. Emmylou introduced Dolly to California. Linda and Emmylou guested on Dolly's telly prog. They planned to make an LP together, but it didn't happen until 1986. Their album, Trio, was old school country at a time when Nashville was looking a different way. They won awards, but were unable to put together a follow-up album until 1999, which was greeted with the same adulation. Linda alas had to quit singing in 2012, thus precluding any 3rd volume. In some respects, this was the distaff alternative to the Highwaymen project, only much less frequently discussed.

Dolly Parton - Here I Am
A new major tribute with Dolly and others recounting her epic story, looking along the way at the signposts of her major songs like Jolene and 9 to 5. Kylie Minogue, Linda Perry and Jane Fonda all sang her praises too.

The Stream - Dolly Parton's America
A happy coincidence with the above. Jad Abumrad runs a regular podcast with his title, after his dad met Dolly after she suffered a car accident in 2013. The global reach of her music was the theme here, how folks across the world see strength in her tunes. Perhaps the headline anecdote came from Nelson Mandela who apparently spoke of hearing Jolene when he was incarcerated at Robben Island, and how it spoke to both the prisoners and the guards. Well, there we are.

Song By Song: Dolly Parton
A 2013 iteration of the 6-part series, with Dolly herself, and many friends and country stars singing her praises, including Vince Gill, Kenny Rogers, Brad Paisley, Miley Cyrus, Janis Ian, Marty Stuart, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. The usual stories came one after another, with the final episode stuff about 2005's film Transamerica being interesting for being usually ignored by other tributes to her.

Dolly Parton - 50 Years at the Opry
A special tribute show with Dolly sharing some memories of old times, singing to an appreciative crowd, and some special guests doing her songs too. So that included Lady Antebellum, Emmylou Harris, Dierks Bentley and Hank Williams Jr. A good show.

Dolly Parton @ Glastonbury 2014
Repeated to back up the above, her infamous Sunday evening "legends" spot which ran for 70-odd minutes, and were packed with most of her key hits, and an all-new tribute to Glastonbury, Mud Song. In both progs, she ended with I Will Always Love You.

Showreel - Dolly Parton
An inevitable option for a series like this. Nothing too imaginative in choices, though some less expectable collaborators did get a showing for once, eg George Jones, Jeremy Jordan, Linda Ronstadt.

The Big Interview w/Dan Rather - Dolly Parton
They chatted at Dollywood. She described herself as having "the waist of a wasp", but she also trotted out other cliches like "I'll never graduate from collagen" etc. Her current album was "Blue Smoke", for which she wrote 9 of the 12 tracks. She claimed to have written more than 3 thousands songs, and published many of them. She rises early to benefit from "wee hour wisdom". The music comes from her mother's side. Jolene is her most covered song, and she told of refusing Elvis over I Will Always Love You. She spoke fondly of working with Kenny Rogers, and having been married for 48 years (plus 2 years before that when they were dating). She's not a party girl at home. She talked of knowing Willie Nelson almost as long as she's been around. They have different takes on Nashville. She supports a literacy program for children which started in Tennessee, but has spread nationwide.
