Ah - Romeo an Juliet. Got a recording of that - its a great listen although the story line is very dated - remember Teddy Boys? Its not a 'folksong' per se, it is a Radio Ballad with dialogues and snatches of folk songs.

I wonder if they'll repeat the Radio Ballad 'The Iron Box' about life for blacks in US prisons.

Then there's the 6 ep. Radio Ballad series 'Off Limits' about the life of blacks in the US Army in the Vietnam War. The BBC never had the objectivity to actually air these. Only one ep. survives.

Then there is the pre-Parker/MacColl ballad opera 'The Man Who Went To War' starring Paul Robeson. This too was sponsored by the BBC. Recently it has just been rediscovered in the Library of Congress, but has been claimed by academia and is not likely to be released or aired for the public to hear.

Thanks henryp.

I've enjoyed a couple of the Caithream Ciùil programmes.
Not understanding the DJ is quite relaxing.

I found the one Tiompan I tried rather too Country for me. But I forgot to check the playlist to see who else was coming up.

And Fàilt' air an Dùthaich
IS Country.

"Tynemouth Sea and Song - Jez Lowe
Open Country

Up on the cliff tops at the mouth of the Tyne sits the imposing Tynemouth Priory and Castle. It's history stretches back to the Iron Age and it has been used by both Monks and the Military as a place to defend nation and faith.
This great monastic heritage may be one reason why the songs of this region have been kept alive. Jez Lowe discovers this place became a seat of learning which meant that there was a history of print; crucially songs were recorded and not lost but also the cultural influence of Christianity from Ireland and mainland Europe gave rise to a melting pot of ideas and influences.

This melting pot of influences is evident today as Jez visits the nearby Fish Quay at North Shields. The songs, and even unique instruments, from this place mix Irish, Scottish and English sounds and themes with music from as far afield as Scandinavia. Even today you can find fishermen from places like the Philippines and the Netherlands working alongside the local boatmen. Music remains ever present in the traditions of the place and Jez explores the songs and sounds which resonate most with people who live and work at the mouth of the Tyne today."
