Remember Genome can give details of each programme - but nothing beats actually listening!!! BTW if you can improve the sound quality please feel free to have a go. But we aware that if a file is recorded in say MP3 128 kbps and then saved in say MP3 320 kbps or FLAC or WAV - it is still just a 128 kbps MP3 file. That's called entropy.

Folkweaves with Tony Capstick galore. The Beeb at Radio Manchester junked all the masters into a skip out back. We know this because a folkie found them, rescued them, and digitised them. But then he faded from the scene. The link is to a set that are now unique survivors. 1.5GB worth.

https://we.tl/65sdW0Ti1E

Genome will tell you whose on them.

They have been digitised at 128kbps. They may have to be redone at 192kbps. But this will take time.

Most suffer from a cassette turnover event after about 45 mins (likely during Tony Foxworthy's folk events round ups).

Haven't uploaded stuff to YouTube for years. One of my accounts transferred from Google Videos was for 'unlimited lengths for trusted users' or some such cr&p. Other more recent accounts were severely restricted that I didn't bother using them. As I remarked above there is/was a 3-hour upload of Oldham Tinkers albums - way over the top.

The Radio Ballad films could be downloaded in parts I guess - using Free YouTube Downloader or something like that. Then they could be joined together using a free trial version of VidoRedo etc.

Would love to track down more recordings by Nic. Jones. I have Penguin Eggs at home - mint!!! In a recent upload there was a definitive recording of Sandy Denny from 1972 (Sounds on Sunday I think) - with more dynamic range than the somewhat 'flat' version issued on CD a few year's back. This is what's so valuable about these recordings that have suddenly come to light.

With regards to the films of the three classic Radio Ballads they are split into parts due to YouTube's policy of only allowing 15-20 minute uploads. I understand that the films were carefully split at natural breaks. However if folks do not object it might be possible to upload each complete file to another cloud site. I'll ask.

BTW 20,000 views is something for films that will never ever be shown in public again.

We are members of the Missing-Episodes board and Wiped.com communities. And I can assure you that there are few if anyone on these sites who are remotely interested in 'folk,' and least of all in 'radio folk.'

Thanks, Rabee, for the Bert Lloyd link.
Also, I have just finished listening to one of the radio programs - this one listed as MKF2 and hosted by Dominic Behan. Interesting program from which I just felt I had to share this quote from DB:

"People in my time, and my kind of folk, have a more difficult time than people in my kind of folk have nowadays. As a matter of fact, it's a sort of a hindsight (effect?) that writers today have upon me and my work.
For example, ten years before Bob Dylan wrote "With God On Our Side", he inspired me to write "The Patriot Game""

To CJB "But we DO have the films of three of the original Radio Ballads (see YouTube) - sadly showing timecodes. But again what gems?!! "

Thanks for that. I have the film versions of the Radio Ballads. in fact I suspect that the versions on YouTube may have may have come from indirectly from me - the time codes are the giveaway, and the YouTube versions have been split into parts which is a nuisance for those folk trying to view them. It was the timecodes that stopped me dispersing the films more widely.

Maybe I'll have to review my antipathy to YouTube. I obviously have no objection to blackleg copies or pirating ( I do it myself) but I feel YouTube goes a mite too far in this respect   Still, I've just noticed that Part ! of "The Shoals of Herring" has ahd over 20,000 views. Maybe it is a good way of sharing "gems."

I have a number of Philip Donnellan films including his infamous "Gone For A Soldier" I sang in this film and in some of Philip's other work and I knew Philip fairly well through working with him on various projects I'll have to the dig the films out and refresh my brain by viewing them again.

In the meantime, and reverting to the original thread, here is another gem from the 60s ... It's Bert Lloyds Folk Song Virtuoso

"But I deem that left wingers at the Beeb now-a-days are far more extreme than ever they were in the time of Ewan MacColl et al. But whatever,"
Sorry Chris =- far from the case
It was the establishment old guard who sacked Charlie and Philip and closed the department - they were regarded as 'The Red Menace'
We were at the showing of Philip's film, 'The Irishmen' a few weeks ago in Dublin, and one of his daughters described how her father had to send copies of his films to Canada, among other places, to guarantee they survived.
We were also close friends with Charlie when he was sacked, so we got this information first hand from him.
You really do need to read Bridson's book.
Another friend, Bob Thomson, described how the Beeb kept all their material on acetate disc in multi-copies and smashed each one after a set number of plays - Bob was there when they arrived at the decision not to replace them
It wasn't just the Beeb, of course
An extremely deaf Maud Karpeles decided to have a clear-out of one of the storage cupboards at C# House, so she ordered the cylinders stored there to be played to her - those she couldn't hear, she ordered smashed.
Horrors stories abound regarding the protection of our recorded heritage.

I was in a band in the mid 1990s that recorded at an East London Studio.
It was studio policy to wipe and reuse the multitrack tape after each mixdown to a client's master.
Unless the client provided their own expensive tape for their own exclusive recordings,
or at the end of studio tracking sessions decided to keep their multi track recording by replacing the used tape with a new one.

We can judge mass tape wiping by the Beeb and ITV as wrong,
but the practice still endured decades later for business costs reasons.

I also remember walking in a street adjacent to Denmark Street [again mid 90s]
and walking past an an audio production facility that had stacked up many boxes of reel to reel tapes
outside on the pavement by the bin bagss.

Curiosity would have overtaken me, except it was late at night, pissing down,
and too many of the tapes were off their spools and tangled in a filthy wet mess.

Guest CJB, speaking on behalf of 'The Halliard' & Nic Jones (solo), we would greatly appreciate hearing any recordings you come across. Nic's solo material is more critical...all of 'The Halliard's' repertoire is available on CD, but not, as many of you know, Nic's. Having spoken to Julia Jones, we favour the discreet approach you adopted with Rosemary H. You can use the contact page on www.nigelpatersonmusic.com if you need to email.

Just one comment on the BBCs wiping of tapes at the period that we're talking about.

Given the expense of quality audiotape and the quantity that would have been required, it was absolutely impossible at that time to keep every recording of every programme that was ever broadcast. Programmes were erased and the tapes re-used.

The value judgements made at the time as to what to wipe and what to keep could be endlessly debated now, depending on your point of view and your particular set of interests. It may have been less clear at the time as to what was or wasn't part of our "culture" - and what should or should not have been kept. I grant you that we can look back with hindsight and say, "oh how stupid and short-sighted they were". They seem to have been negligent to our Mudcat community with its particular interests - perhaps not so much to others.

Don't mistake me - I'm not saying that there weren't some regrettable losses as a result of their policies and decisions, there certainly were - but the decision-making processes may not have been as clear-cut as we think.

Jim - we could / should? debate left wingism v.v. rghtwingism at the BBC some day. But I do take your point that it was the right wingers who sacked Donellen and Parker and likely Michael Mason and consigned their works to obscurity. But whatever, it is a shame that the productions of Donnelan, Parker, Mason, and indeed MacColl are unlikely ever to be aired again, indeed if the Beeb still has their recordings. And it is the short-sighted (disinterested) policies of the Beeb in wiping and discarding so many recordings of our culture that are the causes of this whole convoluted rescue attempt. Take care - CJB.

I assure you that as far as we are concerned no money is made from these recordings in any shape or form. All of the equipment, media, and time is given freely or paid for by the OTR community.

And specifically if we find anything from 'The Halliard' incl. members / ex-members we can and will offer said recordings to you in lew of going public; that is as long as they can actually be saved being that many tapes are now becoming unplayable. The same goes for anyone else we know of like Rosemary H.

This whole OTR scene is really a rescue mission as media disintegrates or becomes obsolete.

I have a VCR copy of The Singer and the Song - interviews with Sam and Harry Cox (though they never met)
Hope to make them available as soon as I can sort out the digitisation
Not sure of your reference to left wing, politically correct snowflakes C
The right wing establishment sacked both Philip and Charles (both left wingers) and eventually dismantled the 'Features Department' which produced all those wonderful programmes.
Charles's and Ewan's refusal to allow the horrific suggestion that all gypsies who wouldn't conform should be "exterminated", in The Travelling People' Radio Ballad proved the last straw.
There's an excellent account of the history of the features department in D G Bridson's 'Prospero and Ariel' "the rise and fall of radio - a personal recollection (still available, last time I looked)
It includes a description of the first appearance of Ewan singing in the street for a Manchester cinema queue in the 1930s - well worth searching out.

You're right - a rare treat indeed. I've just indulged myself with a huge Networked Storage (NAS) system and I'm slowly loading on to it my assorted collection of tapes cassettes LPs etc . It's great to be able to call up any recording you fancy from any room in my house, without having to scrabble thro' assorted hard discs, reel to reel recordings etc.

One of the first items I uploaded was these recordings of Sam and what a delight it was to call them up whilst lying awake in bed the other night and play them back. Cheered me up no end.

Don't suppose you have a copy of the filmed interview with Sam???

These recordings contain some gems of British culture, they are, as far a I am concerned, are Britain's 'Elgin Marbles' and should not be lost because the Beeb no longer have an interest in them - that does not mean I would be happy to see them marketed and exploited.
Pat and I and many of our friends are included in some of those programmes, in each case, we were either paid a pittance or volunteered our services free of charge - the idea that our's and many others' efforts should be lost offends us.

By way of clarification: the fact that the beeb appears to be disinterested in recovering any of these recordings, regardless of quality, source etc, etc., legally, copyright still rests with the BBC. Speaking personally, if someone 'discovers' 'The Halliard' by virtue of one of these downloads, I would be more than happy, providing the recording was for personal use only. Anyone seeking to exploit these recordings commercially would, almost certainly, have to apply to the BBC for a licence. I speak from personal experience.

So here's a treat - the late Sam Larner - fisherman - interviewed and singing ... in the 1960s ...

You might be interested in the four programme made by Philip Donnellan for the BBC Radio Home Service which have just come to light. These are off-air recordings made onto reel-reel tape in the late 1950s / early 1960s. They have been contributed into the 'public domain' by one of Ewan MacColl's Critics Group members (who wishes to remain anonymous). They are incredibly rare since they were only ever aired once on the BBC Home Service in the late 1950s / early 1960s.

What do we do with our rare and unique recordings that even the Beeb doesn't have or more worryingly doesn't even want? Kaleidoscope only wants lost or missing or wiped t.v. programmes. No-one but no-one wants 'folk.'

But there was a case recently. We found a 'Folk on 2' from the 1970s(?) - not a good recording but listenable to - featuring the late Barry Skinner and one Rosemary H. We couldn't trace Barry Skiner's family, but Rosemary H. had a good website. We emailed her. We said that she could have a copy of said recordng. We uploaded the recording and sent her the link. Quuite rightly - when all said and done - she is very particular about who sings her songs using her arrangements. They are special. And she said that she didn't want the link to be made public. That was OK; so only she had the link. When I checked the download stats. over 70 had downloaded the recording!!!
