The BBC archive has a great TV programme from 1965 about Liverpool life, culture and music. It includes a number of folk songs that you might enjoy including:-

I Wish I Was Back In Liverpool
In My Liverpool Home
Docker's Way
Johnny Todd
The Leaving Of Liverpool
The Orange And The Green
Rent Collecting In Speke
A Long Time Ago

Here is the link:-

A lot of faces there I've not seen for too many years, I wonder how many are still with us.

Sadly Pete McGovern writer of such songs as In My Liverpool Home is no longer with us. Some of the music in this programme is by The Spinners but unfortunately they don't appear on camera. Sadly Cliff Hall of The Spinners is no longer with us.

Some voices of resistance but a lot of misery? I guess the black and white photography and the rain didn't help.

Tony .......? drinking a pint near the beginning. I didn't recognise Stan Ambrose although he played brilliant whistle.

Where was that club Pete McGovern sang in? I remember one on London Road in the basement of something or other.

It seemed very dated -all the hair does and hair cuts seemed pre-Beatle. Did it use footage from much earlier

Do you spot anybody else Tom Terrier?

Cheers

Tony Murphy? Yes quite a grim documentary in it's frankness I think the rest of England looks to us for emotional intensity because we don't subscribe to the stiff upper lip. Was it the "Washouse" venue in London Road?

Washouse, wow that rings a bell. Summer of 1964?

No the Goerdie with the red beard, Tony Wilson?

Founder member of the Bothy Folk Group with Stan and founder member of the Bothy Folk Club, ran a great Singaround near the Tunnel Entrance

Les, I was only 16 years old at the time, I wasn't to meet up with that crowd for at least another 18 months. Was the club 'Samson and Barlows' or was that the same as the Washouse? Funny that the first person you see enjoying a pint (possibly in the Old Vic)was exiled Geordie Tony Wilson :)

SUCH a shame that the BBC's cyberspace doesn't stretch to Down Under, as far as Australia - it says "not available in your area" :~(
