The ten programmes were brought out on CD by an ex-member of the Critics Group* and sold at folk festivals around five years ago. I bought a set at Whitby.

* I won't name that person in case there are legal/copyright issues.

In one of the Wikis' articles on English Folk Music (Wiki, Folkopedia, Folkipeadia, whatever) there's a delightful story (maybe apocryphal) of Ewan MacColl making frequent research visits to the BBC or maybe the National Sound Archives. There he discovered wonderful field recordings and made copies of them. Then he went home and made copies for anyone who was interested in them. I love that story - these recordings need to be out in the public domain instead of sitting mouldering away in some dusty archives.

The USA has shown the way with the immense Alan Lomax archives(*) going online. Is it too much to hope that the BBC and Natioanal Sound archives at the British Library might just put their archives online too?

(*) Incidentally the archives have some fascinating interviews between Lomax and MacColl.

Benjaminn Botkin said that the study of folklore consisted of digging up bones from one graveyard and then burying them in another.

"Benjamin Botkin said that the study of folklore consisted of digging up bones from one graveyard and then burying them in another."
Pretty good summing up of what appears to be happening in the academic world nowadays - doesn't fit in to well with what Lomax and others who treated the folk arts with respect and realised their social importance managed to achieve though
Anybody looking for a set of the Song Carriers or other serious broadcasts on the subject, PM me
