See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00tmkdr

"Doc Rowe, who since the 1960s has been recording and filming the traditions, vernacular arts, folklore, song and dance of Britain and Ireland, explores the rites of autumn. With recordings of such events and customs as the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, Punkie Night in Hinton St George, and the wild bonfires of Kent and Sussex, and talking to those involved, he reveals how people here mark the gathering dark."

Excellent show with recordings made by Doc over many years.

Can I remind folks about the Doc Rowe Collection Support Group which I run to pay the monthly rent on housing the collection, which is presently in Sheffield.

Another way you could support his work is to email the BBC via the programme page and give some good feedback with a suggestion that more programmes would be welcome.

BBC Link says not available for listen again. I started listening to R3 at the beginning of the second half, so missed the interval talk. Drat.

Did hear him in person a while ago....

It might be just a bit too early for listen again. The rest of the series is available for 7 days so there's no reason to think this one won't be included.

I've just had a long conversation with Doc and confirmed the details of a new move for the archive. It's going to Whitby!

During September and October the archive will be set up in a business centre on The Ropery, the road behind the Middle Earth Tavern. It's more secure and also a better environment for the tapes and paper.

This opens up lots of possibilities for the archive including events during Whitby Festival. Importantly, it also brings the archive within easy reach of Doc's northern base in Robin Hood's Bay, meaning that he can more easily do some of the development work that is needed to get the archive contents more accessible. Hooray!

Any one off donations at this time would be be especially welcome to help finance the move.

Also, as the new premises are more expensive by a couple of grand per year, new sponsors would be great. We run a scheme called "Buy Doc A Pint", where we donate the price of a pint every month to support the archive. He never gets to drink it of course, but occasionally people do bump into him in a pub and buy him a real pint as well!

A page where you could "Buy Doc A Pint"
