Gin: Mark has some (he still has the negatives!), I might have as well, send me your current email address and I'll send what I have.

Those were the days, strapping my melodeon on the back of the motorbike. The melodeon is in better nick than me these days, I'm afraid to say ... ;0)

Austin

P.S. I think you mean 'ain't not no long defunct'. Innit.
:O)

Alan,
Phil Brown came and made live recordings of us (John o' Gaunt) for his Folk show , The Drift, on BBC Radio Lancashire, putting it out in three parts to illustrate a year in the life of our side. He may be able to supply you with some material if you ask nicely! He certainly recorded much more than he used.

Round aout 1979 Radio 4 recorded the Clitheroe morris tunes at Clitheroe Castle for their archives. Why? Don't know!
The tunes must be around tho if you know how to access them.

Thanks for the suggestion Gin and Robin.
Gin have you checked the archive department of your local Library or the County Library ? When putting together English International this provided a valuable source for photos.Just go to the archive department giving full details of what you are looking for.I found them very helpful.

Didn't ITV make a documentary on Saddleworth Rushbearing in the early 80's? It featured CMM and others; and a certain amount of quaffing as I recall. I think it was for the 'First Tuesday' series. Someone might have a copy, or maybe ITV have an archive?

'First Tuesday' did a programme on the Rochdale Rushcart in the eighties. I can't remember whether Clitheroe were there and I didn't see the programme but I was told I was in it.

Aha! Thought so, found a reference at The British Film Institute.

The LONGWOOD THUMP (1984) "Documentary which looks at the build-up to a Morris dancing festival at August bank holiday by the men of the Saddleworth dancing team."

Might be worth getting in touch with them.

The little grey cells still seem to be working ... :o)

Longwood Thump is (was?) the local name for the holiday when the rushbearing occured.

I recall Saddleworth as being in the West Riding of Yorkshire, although the placename signs used to be emblazoned with a red rose because the area came under the juristiction of Oldham Council / Borough or whatever.

JJ: The hated local boundary changes I expect.

"... and left Todmorden, Lancashire ..." (Miles Weatherhill), whereas Tod is now 'officially' in Yorkshire.

If you go to Pendle, which has also eaten into Yorkshire, and drive to Barnoldswick, you will pass a sign reading "You are now entering the historic county of the West Riding Of Yorkshire" even though you are still (officially) still in Lancashire. Bloody Good on 'em I say. That's the way to do it.

But I digress, subject for another thread I think ...
