We are so lucky in Scotland, having BBC ALBA, which shows a lot of music programmes -not b necessarily all in Gaelic! And more recently, we have BBC SCotland TV which has a few music programmes on it, though largely repeats of shows that have already been on BBC 1 or " or ALBA.

You're so right! And iPlayer does a great job of keeping track of which episodes I've watched and what's new - especially as, being a non Gaelic speaker, I can't remember the names. I can sometimes just leave it to recommend and play.

Unaware of such programmes currently in UK ~ some Folk radio programmes still/currently

A great pity in my view and little televised 1970/80/90 etc which accounts for lack of tv recordings from the folk scene and brilliant revivalist singers of the time Nick Jones, Tony Rose, Martin Wyndham Reed, Dave Burland, Pete Coe et al unless you know better?

So, as I thought, there are NO current ENGLISH tv programmes (I really mean series of programmes) where you can listen to folk singers and musicians at all-
what on earth happened?- there are so many stations compared to the 60s & 70s!

Ray, I was asking originally whether there are ANY UK TV programmes in ENGLAND, featuring 'folk' singers actually performing, however you define 'folk'.
Nobody has pointed out anything at all, so it seems not, and I am contrasting that with the TV of about 50/60 years ago.
There have been many posts demonstrating the number of programmes giving a platform to 'folk' performers in the past- not superstars, just working, maybe semi-pro performers.
We have a limited archive of folk performers from years ago & Mudcat threads like this are very informative, but really, what will WE be handing down to the folkies of 2070?
It seems TV is old technology, but is YouTube any substitute for live folk performance, such as 'Barn Dance'

Apart from News programmes after the national news, are there ANY regional programmes on English TV these days?
very few, I'd say- when you look at the posts above, it just shows how centralised BBC has become!
