BBC Alert:

Sir David Attenborough – World Music Collector

It's not well known, but while searching for Komodo dragons and birds-of-paradise for his Natural History programmes, Sir David Attenborough recorded the musical performances of the people he encountered...

From Gamelan orchestras in Bali; Fijian chants to attract turtles from the depths of the ocean; Aboriginal didgeridoo recitals; even the singing that encouraged boys to bungee jump with only vines attached to their ankles, Attenborough tells the stories of his World Music recordings that have lain in the BBC's vaults for nearly 60 years.

You can join Sir David on his adventures through World Music on Christmas Day live on BBC Radio 3 or listen again online.

When I were a lad, about 1960, there was an upsurge of interest the Paraguayan harp in the UK, and I can remember a Paraguayan band coming to a nearby village for the fete. I doubt that they had ever been near Paraguay really, but it was a revelation, we didn't get much in the way of folk tunes from non-English speaking regions then. They played, I am sure "Pajaro Campana" and "La Llegada". The second, by Enrique Samaniego, was very familiar, as it was the theme music for David Attenborough's "Zoo Quest in Paraguay", which I am convinced was the main reason for the interest in Paraguayan music.

And don't forget his support of Bob Copper on the UK radio.

Just looked up a link I had to a 2014 R2 broadcast about 'Song Hunter'. Annoyingly I never got round to listening to it, but the description of what was done 60 years ago is fascinating.

I listened to it in Balham.

And he played a recording of Margaret Barry from the Bedford Arms - the one in Balham, I presume.

We spent Christmas in the company of David Attenborough on the Yesterday channel.

Wonder if anybody saw that a cover article in one of the newspapers described folk music as yet another of Attenborough's interests in a dying species?
Discuss - or maybe not!

David Attenborough's interest is Life on Earth.

It was his brother - in 10 Rillington Place - who revealed an interest in dying.

It is good that recordings are being released from the dusty archives of the Beeb. At least they weren't junked like so many of their programmes were in the 1950/60/70/80/90s. And did you know that the Beeb has just wiped out over 172 of its specialist websites?

Much of what got deleted - AND STILL IS - is Folk orientated.
