Subject: Radio Ballads - features ..
Date: 19 Apr 15 - 08:52 AM

As further research into the Rradio Ballad genre - we are seeking the following recordings please ...

* Jim Lloyd 'Folk on 2' - Wednesday July 6th 1988

* Mark Radcliffe 'Folk Show' - The Great War

Also does anyone know where the scripts are for the following - it may be possible to re-record them...

Two more lost radio ballad / operas:

* Stone of Tory, 1950. A full-scale ballad opera, broadcast from Dublin, featuring Irish rural singers and a cast from the Abbey Theatre.

* Over the Sea to Skye, 1951. A ballad opera on the flight of Prince Charlie through the Highlands, with Ewan MacColl and a cast of Scots and Hebridean folk singers.

Thank you -

Re: other Radio Ballads of interest:

[GMGough] has reminded me that there is another influential Radio Ballad that seriously needs rescuing:

"Last Shift" Radio Ballad was broadcast as part of The Andy Kershaw Show on BBC Radio 1 on 2nd June 1997.

[GMGough] opines "Last Shift" was a BBC studio recording based on Richard Thompson's "Industry". It seems that the broadcast was far more than a run through of the CD, but was presented in the style of a (MacColl) Radio Ballad."

Does anyone have a copy please?


Then there is:

Priscilla Bigadyke - see:

Again does anyone have a copy of the radio prog. please?


With regards to "The Man Who Went To War" from 1944 the latest information is at:

A photo of the cast is at: - scroll to the bottom

Efforts are being made to persuade the BBC to air this definitive programme again - 70 years after its first airing in 1944.
