It's not bad - they talk with Les Paul on the second show, and Bert Weedon, and there's words from Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch, Pete Townsend, Xuefei Yang and John Williams. Les Paul's contribution to the musical world by inventing multi-track recording got a very very very quick mention.

I found it interesting when they cut between Nigel Tufnel showing off his guitar collection, and Mark Knopfler with his collection. Both talking about the '60s Les Paul.

There is some great archival footage, as well as several interviews done by the show's host.
I'm liking the interviews with BB King, Les Paul, and George Gruhn. Some great stories.
