Sister Rosetta Tharpe Documentary On Youtube

This morning I stumbled upon a BBC documentary about gospel singer and guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe.  It looks like the thing is posted on Youtube, but I’m wondering if it’s somehow available as a DVD.  She’s someone I’ve been wanting to learn more about for some time, so I’m pretty excited.  The documentary is part of privatefender‘s channel – there’s quite a bit of interesting stuff up there.  Most of the documentary is posted to Youtube, although it appears the end or final section is missing.

Here’s the first section of the Rosetta Tharpe doc.  And here, too, is a piece on Tharpe’s influence on Elvis.
