Same Time, Same Place, Next Year
Saturday 26 August 2006 20:00-21:00 (Radio 4 FM)

Doc Rowe has been returning to the same place at the same time for more than 40 years to record, photograph and film annual events such as the Obby Osses dancing through the streets of Padstow on May Day, the Burry Man of South Queensferry on the second Friday in August and the building of the Penny Hedge in Whitby on Ascension Eve.

Malcolm Taylor, the English Folk Dance and Song Society's librarian, follows Doc Rowe as he adds to his vast archive of the sound and images of British vernacular culture, exploring what he has collected, why and what its future might be.
