Thread Name: Regional British TV folk programmes
Subject: RE: Regional British TV folk programmes
Back in the late 60s, on dear old Westward Television, about 10 minutes to off-air time at the end of an evening, they used to finish the programmes with Charlie Bate and Bob Cann playing tunes in a pretty bare set in the studio. When I served on the Arts Advisory Board of Television South West (who won the franchise from Westward), we went through the archives and not a trace could be found - it had all been live. Great loss!
