Subject: Folklore: A. L. Lloyd on You Tube
From: GUEST,Warren Fahey

Having just watched the 8 part series 'The Ballad of Ewan MacColl' (BBC) on You Tube I am wondering about similar films on Bert Lloyd. I am aware of the Australian documentary (ABC) but there doesn't seem to be anything else available - which I find curious. Having read Dave Arthur's excellent 'Bert' (Pluto Press) I know he did several television appearances but where are they?

I am also about to view the Folk Britannia series on You Tube as I know there's some segments with Ewan - hopefully Bert will pop up there?

I don't know of any films about Bert himself but there is a film, BBC I think, of Berts extended visit with Doc Watson, I have it on VHS video.

There was an excellent tribute a year or so after he died on Channel 4 entitled "Bert".
There was a feature on him in BBC2's "The Other Music" and he made another programme for BBC in the late sixties, the title of which I forget, but it included performances form Birtley Folk Club.
Whether any are on You Tube I don't know.

From memory, he did a film in the early 70s (or late 60s) on industrial folk music (including Birtley), then films on American music (including Doc Watson), Hungarian/Romanian music in about 1979/80, Scottish Gaelic. Footage from all were used in the film Bert that Dave S. mentions above. Certainly the later films were made by Barrie Gavin.

Now that VHS recording might be the only one in then public domain. It does need uploading to YouTbe or Vimeo etc.

Bert also made a film about British (English?)calendar customs, the name of which I can't recall. I do recall it showed some excellent footage of the annual TUC May Day march through the centre of Liverpool. In fact it even featured the sandwich board evangelist who used to hang about in Lord Street and who once appeared in an edition of the Liver Birds.

The one on Rumanian music was called Song of Maramures. I can't recall a film specifically on Hungarian music, but he did a marvellous programme on Bartok's folkmusic collecting (which I suppose amounts to the same thing) called the Miraculous Circumstance. Pun on The Miraculous Mandarin perhaps? Dunno, but I wish BBC 4 would show them again.

There's footage of A.L.Lloyd on the Alan Lomax Archives at:

Then there's his appearance in the 1950s film 'Moby Dick' giving a creditable performance of singing a real sea chanty / shanty or two.

From:

http://www.folkradio.co.uk/2011/07/a-l-lloyd-bramble-briars-and-beams-of-the-sun/

Probably one of the best depictions of sea chanties / shanties as working songs on a windjammer.

"'The Ballad of Ewan MacColl' (BBC) on You Tube" - clips on YouTube can be downloaded by YouTubeDownloader et al.

"Australian documentary (ABC)" maybe that can be uploaded to YouTube?
