Apologies if anyone has already posted this, but on BBC3 TV tomorrow, there's what looks to be a documentary dealing with Transatlantic Records, first at 8.30 pm, repeated at 01:55 the next morning. The newspaper says there will be 'performances of folk and country music' so if memory serves, there's a chance of Fureys, Jansch, Renbourn, Connolly (how did he creep in?), McTell, Korner, Dubliners etc, all associated with that label.

I've just looked up listings for tonight and tomorrow for BBC3, 4, 1 and 2 and cannot find this programme. More details, please.

Hallo everybody...

       I can't see this being Transatlantic Sessions!!

Is it just me or is the current series of TS a bit of a let down....?   They are are all superb musicians in their own right, no doubt about it, but I felt the latest offerings were a tad dreary.   The 1st was so novel and refreshing - I loved every minute... TS2 was ok but not quite in the same league.. Was there a 3? Are we on 4 now? Not sure... In retrospect, my feeling is that they should have quit while they were ahead.... ( 10 years ago!) I wish I felt differently!!
I'd be interested in other folks views....

             Regards to all.... Spot

I'd trade a lifetime of transatlantic session fiddlers et al for one hour of the Jacques Brel who followed.
Passion, performance, lyrical reality, LIFE!

Can we have something about English folk song? Please? Something that doesn't take the piss out of it, or misrepresent the revival as being the poor relation of skiffle? It is England, after all....

How about an hour slot, 3 English folk songs, first the straight "source" recording, some noddies about the history, then a revival version, discussion of where the new harmonies etc came from, then a "classic" folk rock version, discussion of the change of the rhythmic features, setting time and sexual mores against courtship rituals, then a "world" version of the song (maybe recorded for the programme), then throw an assortment of people in to extemporise a current acoustic version - one known revival period performer of the song, one folk rocker, and one new generation folker (and maybe a jazz percussionist just to see what they achieve).

Followed, of course by an hour's discussion between Tony Benn, Billy Bragg, and our one legged flautist friend (and go on, how about Diane Abbot and Paul Boateng) on the relevance of this art form today. Of course, if you wanted to make it an informed discussion, you could substitute Martin Carthy, Jon Loomes, Harvey Andrews, and (she has he knowledge) our very own Countess.

8 programmes, based on the list we generated here of the 10 definitive English Folk songs.

If the commission included another similar thread on country or old timey, and another thread on Scottish music, then if the progs were re-edited to US slot length you would have a strand of suitable length for US syndication - and if there was an issue of "balance" the broadcaster could team with the transatlantics, or with dunnamany other progs about Irish music.

Sorry , Welsh, I've left you out.

"It is England, after all...." erm, what is exactly Richard, BBC4 or BBC"? Just wondering.


" (she has he knowledge) our very own Countess."...Ooh er! I think we must be told about this "he knowledge"!

;-)

Richard, what a fanTAStic idea! You should pitch that to BBC4 - seriously.
