And these interviews were recorded and archived?
Sadly not all, but they include the Reg Hall one and quite a number with those with Bob Copper. All these are currently in a long list of things that I am preparing for inclusion on the database for 'Sussex Traditions' all of which I am doing myself; local radio was not archived in the way that national radio was although the local history programe 'Time Was' used my interviews extensively when thet touched on farming, fishing etc. I did not work for the BBC only sharing the presentation and production of the folk music programme on BBC Radio Sussex for 25 years working with Jim Marshall, both as freelances. whilst in my day job as head of a residential special school did not allow me the time I would have liked to record and archive them all myself. There are numerous interviews, particularly the Seamus Ennis one that I regret not having copies of.
