Subject: RE: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
I'm guessing that could have been Charles Parker and that it was during the Radio Ballads research.
I would have thought not, Derek, The photo is dated "early 1960s" which most probably cuts out the first four. The fourth The Big Hewer was broadcast in early 1961 so recording/research/preparation would have been before that.
The second four were The Body Blow (1962) polio, On the Edge (1963) teenagers, The Fight Game (1963) boxers and The Travelling People (1964). Well the first three do not look as though they relate to the photo in the book and unless it is something that did not make it anywhere near the final programme, it is not the last one either.
Of course, if the Doc Rowe collection were all on-line and searchable it would make things easier - but that would be a bit of a task as there are more than 40,000 photos alone apart from:-
* audio and video recordings (with related documentation and transcripts); photographs and transparencies (both archival and contemporary);
* written and printed material (photocopies or published volumes);
* field notes;
* artefacts and posters;
* newspaper cuttings.
