Subject: RE: Origins: Pendle, oh Pendle / Old Pendle
It sounds like my memory has been playing tricks, but for years I associated this song with a tv young persons "write us a song" programme on the telly when I was a kid. I always thought it had been written for this programme (the winning song if I remember rightly was called "Indian Scene" and was about poverty.

I'm really disappointed to read that Old Pendle was not written by a young group especially for the programme.

Maybe the group just did a spot on the same show.
