Thread Name: Sea Shanties on Woman's Hour BBC R4
Subject: RE: Sea Shanties on Woman's Hour BBC R4
I didn't hear the programme, but I understand that the subject for it was 'shanties' rather than the performers who were interviewed as part of the programme though. It therefore seems perfectly reasonable that the questions will be about what shanties are / were. The included performance was to illustrate, I believe, rather than being the purpose of the programme.
