"Doc Rowe, who since the 1960s has been recording and filming the
traditions, vernacular arts, folklore, song and dance of Britain and
Ireland, explores the rites of autumn. With recordings of such events and customs as the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, Punkie Night in Hinton St George, and the wild bonfires of Kent and Sussex, and talking to those involved, he reveals how people here mark the gathering dark."

Yes, thanks for the link, but this is a duplicate of the thread started yesterday by Anahata just in time for me to listen to the programme as it was broadcast!
