All You Need Is Love: The Story of Popular Music is the name of a 17-part television documentary series on the history of modern pop music directed by Tony Palmer, originally broadcast worldwide between 1976 and 1980. The series covers some of the many different genres that have fallen under the "pop" label between the mid-19th century and 1976, including folk, ragtime, Tin Pan Alley, vaudeville and music hall, musical theatre, country, swing, jazz, blues, R&B, rock 'n' roll and others. This documentary has been criticized for having a bias towards rock music. Disco music has been completely ignored and most popular artists from the pre-rock music era who can not be tied to the notion of somehow being a precursor to rock music have been ignored. Such popular 1920's and 1930's artists as Nick Lucas, Russ Columbo, Ted Lewis, Sophie Tucker, Nat Shilkret, Bob Haring, Ben Selvin, Frank Munn, Morton Downey, George Olsen, Helen Morgan, Roger Wolfe Kahn, Abe Lyman, Fred Waring, Arthur Tracy, Jacques Renard, Richard Himber, Leo Reisman, James Melton, Scrappy Lambert, Donald Novis, Earl Burtnett, Gene Austin, Leonard Joy, Seger Ellis, Al Goodman, Harry Horlick, Fred Rich, Meyer Davis, Jack Denny, Franklyn Baur, Johnny Marvin, Vaughn De Leath, Maurice Gunsky, Victor Arden, Phil Ohman, Lewis James, Chester Gaylord, etc. have been completely ignored.
