There is a project along the lines of 'The Long March of Everyman' to collect and restore lost &/or missing episodes of the 26-part radio series 'The British Seafarer.' In part this is to honour the producer Michael Mason's work, but also because the series has been well 'lost' and now may only exist on home taped cassettes.

Please add a comment here is you have any cassettes or reel-reel tapes that you could loan this project. Thank you

We now have these episodes on CD (actually DVD RAM) - each file is 500MB in FLAC format. They have been digitised by an expert from reel-reel off-air recordings. They are just about broadcast quality. The search continues for the other episodes.


2        Canvas, Hemp and Wood (intro / outro missing)
3        The High Seas        
4        The Merchants
5        Charts, Sea-Clocks and Stars        
6        The Complete Seaman
7        Stresses, Strains and Storms
8        The Long Blockade
11        Missing, Lost and Saved
13        Fisherman
20        The Dreadnought Navy
23        Jutland        
24        The Battle of the Atlantic, 1939-45 (first 45 min)


Now what to do with the recovered recordings is a moot point.

I wonder if the British Sound Archives would be interested in copies?
