After The Choir, starting next week on Friday 7 May, BBC4, "the choirmaster explores the history of shanties and sea songs in Britain's maritime past, travelling around the country and meeting the people keeping the traditions alive..." - quote from the latest edition of the Radio Times.

According to RT, he's out of his comfort zone, which suggests that the music should be reasonably authentic.

Fisrmen's Friends article in the Telegraph. Wonder if they will feature in the programme?

we previewed this programme in English Dance & Song magazine (Autumn 2009) in an article on John Short, the Watchet sailor. I seem to remember that the programme is going to feature Cornish sea songs, fishermen's choirs in Yorkshire, Jim Mageean and the Keelers in Tyneside, Liverpool .... not sure if all of these will make it onto the programme. They planned to include a trip on a sailing ship in the North Sea but I think the weather defeated them!

ps just previewed on Stop the Week, radio 4

Fishermen's friends and Kimber's men are both definitely in it.

Sandra, It'll probably be available on-line after the event on BBC iPlayer. Programs are noramlly there for a week, but may be longer if they are part of a series, which this appears to be.

In the UK you can watch it live on-line via a number of websites. I use this one. http://www.tvguide.co.uk

It is possible that this may not work outside the UK.

I think you and I must have been watching different shows, Nick... I saw a bit of out-of-depthness but not the patronising.

On the programme I saw it was an enthusiastic non-specialist giving it a sincere go.
