Subject: RE: Ballad of the North West (BBC TV series)
Sandra - Thanks for pointing that out - the website got a revamp a few years ago and the Harry Boardman pages are now HERE :

Page 2 deals with Ballad of the NorthWest and other broadcasts that Harry was involved with.
Interesting that Ken still has a few scripts - I added three scripts that you can read on the site. If you read this Ken would it be possible to scan the scripts as PDF files and send them to me where I can add them to the page.

Although the master tapes of the broadcast TV programmes don't exist anymore as far as I know, the North West Film Archive holds the 16mm film from about 6 or 7 programmes that were used as inserts into the studio recording. There's about a minute or so of "Narras and Flats" showing Harry talking about the boat people that you can look at here Narras and Flats
