A recording of a sea shanty made in 1920s Sunderland, which ended up in the vaults of the US Library of Congress in Washington DC, has been played to descendants of the sailor.

The song was recorded by James Madison Carpenter during a folk song hunting trip he made to the UK in the late 1920s. Chris Jackson reports.
