To be slightly less cryptic, there's more information here .

"Stewart Lee enthuses about a misunderstood dance that's as sexy as salsa - The Morris."

'Dance that's as sexy as salsa.'
I'd have to be a serious gourmet to find sauce 'sexy.'

;-)

Or a serious dancer to find Morris sexy.

Play it and record it using Audacity (with input setting Stereo Mix). Or download it using RadioDownloader (or Mac equiv.). Those oversea might need to use ExpatShield first.

Speaking from Canada, you only need ExpatShield for BBC Video.
Audio programmes are freely accessible.

I am in the Eastern US and listened via the BBC site - and you can for 6 days.

Enjoyed it, with some reservations, particularly regarding The Adderbury Revival.
I was there - and not motivated by Morris On! Good recording, but it did not make me start dancing (I was already a dancer) nor made me help with the revival.

Yes, I think Morris On was part of the revival and not so much one of the causes.

It's Got Bells On, about morris dancing on BBC Radio 2. A nice overview of history and the diversity of the current English scene by Stewart Lee. (He's a comedian, apparently, but the show is straight, and enthusiastic.)

Originally aired Monday, Dec. 12, 2011. Available to hear online for 6 more days. There's news at the very beginning, but the program starts a just a few minutes in.
