Today 19 September 16:00 BBC Radio 4 The Compass Crossing the Cuillin Mountains

In this two part series, we accompany the writer and mountaineer Robert Macfarlane on his attempt to complete the Cuillin Ridge. This expedition marks twenty years since his first book 'Mountains of the Mind' in which he tries to understand the human fascination with mountains. Along the way, he muses on the ways in which these particular mountains have been explored imaginatively and in reality. The reality for Robert is both challenging and wonderful.

Two modern works are weaved throughout Robert's journey. The words of the great late Gaelic poet Sorely MacLean who knew these mountains intimately and wrote of them in his long poem, 'The Cuillin'. And the more recent musical work of fiddler and composer Duncan Chisholm and his album 'Black Cuillin'. We also feature brand new music from Duncan Chisholm and Gaelic Singer Julie Fowlis. Plus a song with lyrics by Robert Macfarlane based on his experience of the Ridge.

Presented by Robert Macfarlane Produced by Helen Needham
Mountain Guide - Richard Parker Readings by Julie Fowlis and Sorley MacLean
Music by Duncan Chisholm, Julie Fowlis and Donald Shaw Mixed by Ron McCaskill
A BBC Scotland Production made in Aberdeen for BBC Radio 4.

Various articles written about bbc cutbacks
www.google.com/search?q=bbc+reducing+local+radio+programmes

Some quotes collected by RadioToday

The changes to Local BBC Radio have been debated in Parliament with the house ruling for the BBC to reconsider the decision to reduce local output.

Rt Hon Sir Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead brought forward the motion and started by saying, in his constituency, BBC Three Counties will turn into BBC Eight Counties on the weekend under current plans.
Sir Mike said: “This is about people. The way that the HR department have handled this is absolutely appalling for a public body.
“This house will not tolerate the undermining of local radio in our constituencies.”

Andy Carter, MP for Warrington South and Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Commercial Radio, added: This house expects Ofcom to regulate the BBC, to ensure it robustly holds to account the management of the BBC for delivering local services.”

Mrs Emma Lewell-Buck, MP for South Shields: “Disgracefully, it was through the pandemic that the BBC started these cuts asking over 100 staff to take voluntary redundancy, stripping back the schedules, forcing all shows to have four hour slots, with solo presenters.

“This set the scene to make the cuts they want to make now and merging everything from 2pm onwards. For the nation’s flagship broadcaster to introduce these changes without consulting the fee paying public is pretty appalling.”

Rt Hon Sir Robert Buckland KC MP for South Swindon said: “Without local radio then local people are not going to be informed.”

The Conservative MP paid tribute to community radio station Swindon 105.5 but said the BBC has an obligation to provide a local public service.

Many MPs promoted the benefits of local radio including having local conversations with local people, local weather being provided, engagement with listeners and local journalists providing local news – although these elements will still be heard on each local service albeit for fewer hours each day.

Local radio stations will continue to provide local news, and local programmes for eight hours per weekday, although the majority of the discussion assumed the entire network was being closed down.

Over 20 MPs from all over the UK debated the issue for almost two hours, all agreeing the planned reductions to local programmes will cause a substantial change to the network.

In closing, Sir Mike Penning said: “This is what Parliament is about. Parliament has come together on a motion to tell the BBC what they are doing is wrong. The BBC are independent of government, but they are not independent of this house.

“The BBC cannot ignore the motion before the house today and if they do it will be at their peril.”

These local folk programmes ceased in most of England years ago. Radio London (Mike Sparrow - not just folk), Radio Oxford (Roger Watson), 3-Counties Radio (? Meek and Phil Richards) and most recently Radio Kent (Doug Welch). Genevieve's was always the most ideosyncratic. Perhaps she'll start a podcast - Mike Harding has stopped his. (And sold his bass concertina!)

They survived - indeed were revived after the first set of cutbacks - in Shropshire and Mereseyside, and a new programme started in Sheffield.

Doug Welch now publishes his whats-on on Facebook, BTW: kentsundayfolk
