Please does anyone have a copy of the BBC programme about|Peggy Seeger please?

BBC R4 - Peggy Seeger - In Her Prime (19 Oct 2010)...
Description: Peggy Seeger: In Her Prime
BBC Radio 4 - 19 Oct 2010

Sara Parker presents a radio portrait of Peggy Seeger, the American folksinger and political activist who was Ewan MacColl's long-time partner.

This year, Peggy returns to live once again in Britain, to be near her extended family and to explore new creative avenues. For many years her own 'song-making', as she calls it, was overshadowed by MacColl's, with whom she lived for three decades in this country. Together they produced three children, countless recordings (including the iconic 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' with MacColl wrote for her) and, with Sara Parker's father Charles, the celebrated 'Radio Ballads'.

Her creative life has also been lived in relation to the success of her folk-singer brothers, Pete and Mike, and partly in the shadow of her parents, the avant-garde composer Ruth Crawford Seeger and the ethnomusicologist Charles Seeger.

Now, in her prime, she tells Sara what's brought her to this point, about her growing and creatively energetic family, how she feels about the loss of loved ones and about the strength she gets from her new partner, the Irish singer Irene Pyper-Scott.

Producer: Alan Hall
A Falling Tree Production for BBC Radio 4.

We had the opportunity to hear Peggy here in Michigan four years ago , and then just a couple of weeks ago. We were forewarned that this might be our last chance to see her here. Definitely wouldn't have wanted to miss the opportunity.

Great programme. Brought back memories of all sorts from my long life. Why, I once had Peggy sit on my lap in a crowded car for quite a long drive, going back to someone-or-other's after a Princess Louise evening. Match that if you can...! Not much to do with the programme, but glad to have recorded the fact here for posterity!

{When was the programme recorded, BTW? She says in it that she is 75; but from other things she said, she was born in 1935, so is now 80 or 81.}

Oh, sorry -- see from beginning of thread that it was a repeat. Ignore last question. I must be getting even older than I thought!
