Subject: BBC Treasure Hunt
From: GUEST,Mark Dowding
Date: 04 Feb 02 - 07:19 PM

As British TV viewers may be aware, much has been made of the return to the BBC of various 'lost' programmes such as 'The Likely Lads' 'Dad's Army' 'All Gas and Gaiters' and radio episodes of 'Hancock's Half Hour' What many people probably don't realise is that The BBC has junked many hours of Folk programmes such as 'Folk on One' 'Folk on Friday' and Folk on Two' prior to 1984. If you have any programmes like the above that you've taped off air, especially if the programme contains a live concert then you may be able help to restore the archive of its lost 'Treasure' Further details are on the website of Folk North West:

www.folknorthwest.co.uk

Have a trawl through your tapes and see what you've got. If there is enough interest we can take it from there.

Good hunting

I might be able to locate a (BBC copy, 15in/sec, reel-reel) tape of "Folkweave" recorded about 1974 at Catford Folk Club. The main guests were Graham & Eileen Pratt, the presenter was Tony Capstick, and amongst the odd spots your's truly singing "Tam Lin" with Wendy Simon (of Walton Folk Festival fame).

I don't think it matters what format anything is on. 15ips broadcast quality reel to reel would be ideal but I imagine most stuff is on cassette that anybody's recorded. Somebody's got some stuff that they've recorded on cassette by pointing a microphone at the radio from the days when cheap recording hardwear was in it's infancy. It all helps the cause. Singers nights can be just as interesting as guest nights with the diversity of styles that they generate. Remember I don't want a copy, just the details of what you have then I can get back to the BBC to see if they would be interested in.

Keep looking.

Peter Pilbeam was a very very nice man and a pal but I am 99% certain he died a few years back. If anyone knows different I would be delighted. His main claim to fame was turning down the Beatles for a radio spot in their very early days. He hought they were crap.

Peter Pilbeam told me in 1977 that he had several hundred hours of Folkweave programmes on tape. I don't know whether they were his personal copies or in some BBC centre, but they did exist. If I remember correctly, FW was produced someplace outside of London, so they probably weren't lost in some mad cleanup at Broadcasting House.

Do any of the 1950's "Blues and Ballads" (or was it "Ballads and Blues"?) programmes still exist?

I have a copy of "Bold Nelson's Praise", the program that Bert Lloyd put together for the anniversary of Trafalgar. On BBC Transcription Service discs.

...However, although the campaign has closed this does not mean the search has finished. BBC Archives would still be interested in hearing from members of the public who have BBC recordings of interest to offer. You can contact them at the following address:

I am a member of a radio preservation society and am very interested to know if people, as well as Folk material, have any plays/comedy/etc. from the pre. 1985 period? There are some items we are particularly after.

If you recorded from radio onto cassette, reel or disc prior to 1985, I'd love to hear from you! We are non-profit making, but can 'whip round' to pay for reels bought etc. Copies can be made on CD too.

EVENTUALLY TONI AND HAD TO PULL OUT OF THE CLUB DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF GIGS WE WERE THEN DOING AROUND THE COUNTRY, BUT THE CLUB WENT ON FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

I've only just picked up this discussion. I have a number of tapes and cassettes which I'm currently transferring to minidisc. Most of them are parts of folk music programmes covering featured topics. I have a number of such. They include three series from Folkweave by Sam Richards and one I did myself or four programmes called "The Price of Progress".
Just before Folkweave was taken off air I'd done a series of eight programmes with Peter Pilbeam called "Heroes All". I've no copies of this stuff so any help on if it exists would be welcome.

More to the point is anyone interested in these pogrammes and features I have?. I'm quite happy to copy them or hand over the originals to a bona-fide archive. Apart from the Folkweave recording I've quite a lot of other folk music related material I recorded during the later 1960s and early 1970s.

Not sure if this is still running, but Peter Pilbeam is my dad and he still lives in Manchester, where Folkweave was produced. I also thought Folkweave was crap (but then again, at the time I thought Folk was crap, full stop), apart from those programmes with recordings made whilst I was holding the microphone during school holidays (Wassailing in Bodmin is a particular favourite memory - aged about 10 - standing in a circle with about 10 pissed blokes wearing top hats and tails, all peeing into the centre spot of Bodmin [rugby] pitch around 2.00am The reference to the Beatles is inaccurate - dad auditioned them in 1962 and thought they were great - he gave them their first 6 broadcasts on national radio. The faux pas was that the audition sheet gave vocalist John Lennon the thumbs up, but Paul McCartney the thumbs down. Oh well...

Both the Railway Tavern and Rising Sun are still standing....albeit with a few changes at both.
I think the Railway is now The Copperfield, but it still shakes to the 4.20 to Hayes.
And The Rising Sun has had a few changes since a particularly nasty incident in the alley next to it a few years back, it is now West Indian run and does excellent grub.
Aaaaah Catford! Must pay it a visit soon, if only to gaze lovingly at the black and white cat.

Hi John - Thanks for the contribution and good to know your dad's still with us. Would you be able to tell us if he has copies of any of his programmes? I know that Stan Ambrose who produces Folkscene on BBC Merseyside along with Geoff Speed has loads of his old programmes on reel to reel including a programme where he talks to Brian Peters about Harry Boardman. He kindly lent this tape to myself and Chris Pollington to make a copy of it for our archive of material featuring Harry. Talking of Chris, I was round at his house last night where he's recovering from a broken back after falling off a ladder and we were listening to some of his old cassette recordings he made of "Fine Folk" from the early days of BBC Radio Blackburn (now Radio Lancashire) where he was featured with his group Knight's Anthem (I think) - pre Strawhead days - about 1972. The programmes was presented by John Mills (not THE John Mills) who sounded awfully posh for a programme broadcast in Lancashire - but then they all did in those days! He also had some other recordings of a programme called Music in Schools which featured his school Jazz band and considering the age of the pupils was about 13, the standard of playing was excellent. The past is out there - it just needs looking for!
Thanks to an appeal I made on another thread regarding the TV programme "Ballad of the Northwest", I now have about ten audio recordings of the programme which is otherwise missing. Whilst they aren't the best quality considering they were done by pointing a microphone at the TV speaker, they are at least listenable to and very interesting they are as well.

Subject: RE: BBC Treasure Hunt
From: Mark Dowding
Date: 29 Nov 04 - 03:48 AM

Yes they do in one form or another.

The early series (1962-65) were recorded on 405 line videotape for transmission and transferred to 16mm black and white film for overseas sales purposes (it's easier to sell film abroad rather than video as different companies have different standards but film can be put through a telecine machine which converts the signals to the standard required. The original video tapes were wiped to use again but the film recordings survive.

The later series (1970-74) were made and recorded on 625 line colour videotape. These were not transferred to film as far as I know but the tapes of the earlier (70-71) series were wiped. It was later discovered that Galton and Simpson had made off air recordings on a very early domestic reel to reel video recorder and these were discovered in Ray Galton's garage in the 1990s. The rest of the programmes survived on the original 2" video tapes.

Many of the programmes were released on VHS in the late 80s-90s and the first series from 1962 has been released on DVD although disappointingly there has been no attempt at restoring the pictures using modern technology. There is a process available that restores the more "live" look of video as opposed to the more jerky appearance of film which has been used on restoration of early Dr Who programmes as they are released on DVD and the first series and what's left of the second series of Dad's Army to great effect.

Guido, where the heck did you get those from? I heard those programmes in Singapore in '69-'71 and they were Fab to use the expression of the era. The sad bit about it was that the BFBS people were told to destroy the LPs as soon as they had been broadcast. It seems there were some who realised their worth. As I remember, the LPs were one sided, and of one hour in length. Is this the case with yours?

Seems like there is a lot of rare archival material out there. But it is in scattered and private ownership. And folks like Guido (?)have announced that they have e.g. 13 acetate trans. disks of Folk Song Cellar - and then have disappeared from the forum. So his/her material is now lost forever. With regards to Folkweave I have had email correspondance with someone - a banjo player from Manchester - who claimed that he had 'found' a skip full of junked masters of Folkweave behind the BBC Manchester Studios. Apparently he took all of them them home and eventually digitised them to CD. But then he too 'disappeared' and emails of enquiry went unanswered. I also know of a collection of Folk Song Cellar recordings in NZ. But again these are in a private collection and said owner maybe thinks that the BBC is going to pay big bucks to get them back. No chance. So what's the point of owning all of this stuff if it is still in private hands. It needs putting back into the public domain. I emailed the NWFolk Archive about my own recordings of Folkweave. But no-one replied. So my own tapes will get lost. And my relatives have no interest whatsoever in such material if my clogs are popped anytime soon. I understand that the British Library has a collection of folk programme recordings - but again these are out of reach of most, may be only listened to, but certainly can never be copied or released into the pubic domain aka uploaded to the web. BTW emails to the Treasure Hunt also get ignored. I say again - what's the point?

Problem would be who has the ownership of copyright and would they let them be placed there.
I have about 530 Folk on Twos from 1982 up to 2000 with omissions, usualy with a gap in the middle of each one when turning the cassette over!

Like Chris B, I am busy dealing with old tape collections and have a few awaiting my attention, including a number of folk club collections on both cassette and quarter inch. To that end I've spent a chunk of money setting up a transfer bay which will transfer from all domestic quarter inch formats and all cassette dolby types to digital.

Two years ago, the Traditional Song Forum proposed a project, called 'Voices In The Attic' to which my name is notionally attached but I've yet to put any serious effort into tracking down more recordings, thus increasing the size of the task which is already pending. Some project partners would be welcome.

It would be nice if all the old recordings could be made available, BBC folk programmes, club recordings, field recordings, etc. but the task would be enormous and would bring lots of thorny copyright issues with it. The BBC Archives are very helpful if approached in the right way but there are other problems like performers not wanting old, possibly sub-standard club performances being in the public domain etc.

Chris B has made some recordings available online (applause) but there is a limit to what can be hosted by those of us willing to devote time and fork out from our own pockets for storage etc. My own audio archives are in excess of 2 Terabytes - considerably less in mp3 format of course but it still represents a considerable effort to get it reformatted and uploaded somewhere. Also, there is a proportion of it that will be of little interest to the majority and maybe of no interest at all.

Since the VitA proposal was raised I've been wondering how to approach the problem of accessibility and it occurs to me that in the absence of a national solution brokered by the British Library or the EFDSS who might have the will if not the resources (and I'm talking copyright here, not technology), there might be a middle way. That would be to club together and set up an online database of recordings so at least we know what exists and who's got it. I'm not saying that those who have the recordings will automatically make them available to anyone who asks - I've certainly no wish to be flooded out with requests for copies when I'm busy getting on with my own life, but over a period of time, mp3s could be disseminated and passed around from those who have them to those who need them and without huge violations of the copyright laws.

Does anybody think this is a good idea?

Just to demonstrate what might be ultimately available I'll send a link to the zip file of the Paul Graney Memorial Archive rough catalogue to any interested parties if they send an email request to my mudcat handle followed by @imailbox.com

Hi Smedley,

I'm in contact with Newcastle via both Vic Gammon and Chris Coe and their library's ability to handle archive material is limited by resources. Additionally I'd say that academic institutions like universities are not good repositories for anything you might be wishing to reside in the public domain. If anything, they are worse than the BL for access as you need to be in the academic community. At least with the BL you only have to be rich.

The value of 'lost' recordings - bootlegs, BBC transcription disks, etc., is welldescribed here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Live-At-BBC-Fairport-Convention/dp/B000NA2UAU

Lost and found BBC transcription discs provide new matter to one of the 4 CDs in this beautiful and informatively packaged '60s-'70s box set trove culled from its and band's archives spanning the earliest sessions by the first generation Fairport (a West Coast-influenced folk pop act) to the robustly English folk rock act if became best known for. Disc 4 contains the lost (poor quality its has to be said) recordings featuring original singer Judy Dyble with pleasures aplenty in her exquisitely piped takes, including earliest single, "If I Had A RIbbon Bow", and giggles aplenty in the period deejays' matey intros and back-announcements. But it's in the Sandy Denny era that the band establish the credentials that have enabled them to trade the Fairport brand with relative ease and charm over subsequent years.

"Fotheringay", "Si Tu Dois Partir", "Poor Will And The Jolly Hangman", and "Reynardine" are highlights heaped upon highlights enjoying robust yet sensitive treatments couched in swooning musicianship, and bristling with vitality and confidence. This is a fine introduction to one of the finest of their kind and an entertaining ride into radio nostalgia.

It would probably help to establish a definitive list of pre-1980s folk programmes. Appended could be the known years of existence, i.e. date of first edition v.v. date of last edition.

As a start there is:

(London) Folk Song Cellar
Folk & Country British Style
Country Meets Folk
Folk on 2
Friday's Folk
Folk 76
Folk 78
Folk 77 (presumably)
Folkweave

...

For holdings I would suggest setting up a spreadsheet on Google docs to which anyone could append details. Or maybe use a Yahoo groups database - perhaps TradTunes?

How about "Tonight in person"?
One BBC programme featuring Judy Collins with Eric Weissberg on guitar and Chuck Israels on bass, recorded in 1966. I used it for editing practice when I worked in the videotape room at WNTV1, back in 1968/9. When I left I kept the old 2inch videotape until I found a mate in the tape room who dubbed it onto a videocassete for me, using the last big Ampex 2000 machine they had that was still working.
Or maybe I shouldn't mention that??

Chris, at Channel One, NZBC, in the 60s and 70s, videotape was expensive (2inch wide) and at 15ips, a half hour programme on a metal spool was heavy and took up lots of space.
So unless a producer said "Keep that one" (in which case someone had to find storage space) after a certain period of time the videotape room was instructed to ERASE the tape and put it back in the shelves to use again. Some of the news or sports stuff that they wanted for the archives, was fed through the Telerecorder and a black and white film was made - usually very grainy and of lousy quality.
The methods of recording used today were only a dream then.
I'm sure BBC had the same problems. If a programme was done on film, there was a solid copy, but if it was a studio programme on VT, the tapes were usually wiped. (Except for Wn3366 which I kept hidden behind #1)

I guess the below mentioned radio shows are what we're seeking to save; although the article is incomplete because it doesn't mention Folk Song Cellar nor Country Meets Folk:

From: Wiki - Folk Music of England

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folk_music_of_England

"The difficulty of gaining regular appearances on television in England has long meant that radio has remained the major popular medium for increasing awareness of the genre. The EFDSS sponsored the BBC Home Service radio program, As I Roved Out, based on field recordings made by Peter Kennedy and Séamus Ennis from 1952 to 1958, which probably did more than any other single factor to introduce the general population to British folk music in the period.[45] Also important were occasional radio shows, such as Lomax's Ballads and Blues, MacColl's Radio-ballads (1958–64) and The Song Carriers (1968). John Peel frequently included folk music of his Top Gear show on Radio One from 1968, but dropped it when punk arrived in the 1970s. The most consistent source of folk music on radio, has been BBC Radio 2. In 1967 "My Kind of folk" was broadcast on Wednesdays. In 1970 "Folk on Friday" began, presented by Jim Lloyd. In 1972 it became "Folk on Sunday". "Folkweave" was presented by Tony Capstick 1975-8. "Folk on Two" (Wednesdays) began in 1980. In 1998 Jim Lloyd retired from the programme and was replaced by Mike Harding. In 2007 it was renamed "The Mike Harding Folk Show". Ian A. Anderson, editor of "fRoots", also presented the occasional series for Radio Two. He hosted a World music programme on "Jazz FM" and then spent 10 years broadcasting on the BBC World Service. He currently hosts "fRoots Radio" on the web. For over twenty years, until 2006, Charlie Gillett presented World music on BBC London."

Bob Monkhouse was one of the first to have a home video recorder. He had recordings in his personal archive both in film, video and audio that have been lost or wiped by the TV Companies and BBC. These include hundreds of classic comedies long since gone. This amazing archive has only just been discovered, and it is hoped that many of these recordings will eventually be released into the public domain.

Meanwhile I hope that someone has capped to TheBox.bz this programme on BBC4:
