The main rule is to get a disposable email address, or any email address, from an organisation you trust not to spy on the emails you intend to receive. But it's a lot of trouble to go to. You could use any email address that you tolerate being spammed - don't you already have one? I have a a gmail address I use for occasional online purchases which I suspect might get spammed and which I'm prepared to abandon. And I've used it for years - gmail catches most if the junk. And if you post it here as 'something AT something.com' it's not very likely to be harvested for spam anyway.

I wonder why Guest specifies this method rather than a PM or posting a link? (Mods: I suggest splitting this email stuff into a tech thread.)

Happily the BBC’s war nostalgia isn’t available in this part of Ireland . Piqued that our forefathers didn’t do their bit during the scrap presumably , stabbed old Blighty in the back in 1916 and all that .

The reason for the title is that it is part of a series of Radio Ballads that have taken the format used by Ewan MacColl and created new programmes on a range of themes including this annual programme about WW1

You may have missed the discussion earlier in the thread.

The title of this episode is 'The Ballad of the Great War 1917'. The whole series is called 'The Ballads of the Great War'.

"Accounts of life and death on the Western Front in words and music, featuring eye-witness accounts from veterans and specially commissioned songs by British folk songwriters"

Am I missing something here?

Ballads of the Great War surely means, or implies, ballads of, or from that time.

"Ballad of the Great War 1917; broadcast 11 November 2017

Original music by John Tams, Julie Matthews, Jez Lowe, Jim Boyes, Sean Cooney, Karine Polwart and Ray Hearne intertwined with tales of the war.

Other contributors; Bob Fox, Sam Kelly, Olivia Chaney, Kris Drever, Barry Coope, John McCusker.


Now as NONE of the above were "of" that time then surely they are only capable of writing modernist songs about the First World War.

A Garland for Joey; The War Horse Songbook
A Retelling by Bob Fox, Songman, and John Tams, Songmaker

This new album includes the complete War Horse Songbook and a postscript of new works ? companion pieces to the storytelling and the ever-resonating impact of The Great War.

Bob Fox?s intuitive and masterful re-telling of these songs, accompanied by his beautifully accomplished guitar settings, and additionally in the company of Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band, form the heart of the album ? at its core a message of remembrance and above all peace.

A Garland for Joey is released on 11th November 2017 via Fledg?ling Records.

That's the one I have: IRR030 -1997. Also features Vera Coomans. Many of the songs are accompanied by 'the Golden Serenaders' - which recreates the inter-war music by the band of that name in which one of his Grandfathers toured Europe. Until they had to stop - "what with Noni being Jewish".

I can't imagine a solo performance.

It seems that get_iplayer 2.97 will no longer record live TV as it used to - thank you BBC! I wanted to record the Festival of Remembrance on BBC One this evening to my PC as our freesat is fully occupied.

However, this BBC One HD Live webstream lurking in the shadows can be captured free of iplayer restrictions using ffmpeg!

Gentle Men tells the stories of Robb Johnson?s grandfathers, Ernest Johnson and Harry Jenner. The songs present the effect of history on two of its statistics, two gentle men, who survived the First World War, but were forever in its shadow.

My post 16 Nov 16 - 10:59 AM listed episodes in the series (PID b04n2d2s) whether available or not. get_iplayer doesn't seem to do that any more (I have 3.05):

get_iplayer --preset radio   --pid=b04n2d2s
...
No episode PIDs found for parent PID: b04n2d2s
Presumably one will appear on Saturday.

If there are series like this one which might be rebroadcast one day I suppose you could put their series PIDs in a file and run a CRON job every month to see if any had been.

For anyone not familiar with the BBC's Programme Identifier (PID) system, a bit of explanation. Each programme (episode) has a code - you can see it in the link I posted earlier and in the URL of any programme page you display in a browser. There are actually several levels:
david@pan:~> get_iplayer --preset radio  --pid=b03z7zx8
...

INFO: Brand pid detected
INFO: Brand: 'World War One' (b03z7zx8)
INFO:    Series: 'The Ballads of the Great War' (b04n2d2s)
INFO:      Episode 'The Ballad of the Great War - 1914' (b04m4j7g)
INFO:      Episode 'The Ballad of the Great War - 1915' (b06nn8bg)
INFO:      Episode 'The Ballad of the Great War - 1916' (b081mm10)
INFO:    Series: 'The Songs and Shows of World War I' (b04q0z92)
INFO:      Episode '1914: We Don't Want to Lose You' (b04q10gh)
INFO:      Episode '1915' (b06nt201)
INFO:    Series:
INFO:      Episode 'All Is Calm - The Story of the Christmas Truce' (b04ttzjl)
INFO:      Episode 'Forgotten Heroes: The Indian Army in the Great War' (b04tkz1w)
INFO:      Episode 'Oh What a Lovely War' (b03thcl8)
INFO:      Clip 'Christmas trees in the trenches' (p02fkbz6)
INFO: Please run the command again using one of the above episode PIDs or to get all programmes add the --pid-recursive option
So if you want a whole series you can download them all at once. But not all these episodes are retrievable - the 1915 ballads programme (b06nn8bg) isn't - it's too old.

Yes - but the prog. will not be listed as available on the Web PVR after about 7 days. Between 7 and 30 days you have to use the command line version. Viz.:

c:/program files/get_iplayer>get_iplayer --type=radio --pid=b081mm10 should do it.

From the UK it is possible to download in 320kbps from the new DASH servers. If overseas this is reduced to 196kbps. But you need to know how.

Previous Radio Ballads have relied on the songs and the voices of those involved - the fishermen, roadbuilders, or railwaymen in the original Radio Ballads. This one adds a narrator/historian to put the events in context; it turned it into a bit of a history lesson, I thought.
