Well what a night it was last night (Sunday). I had already seen the Coppersongs prog on Friday evening, but watched it again last night, then we had Eliza Carthy and friends/band for an hour followed by re-showing of the programme about Sidmouth 2004 - all on BBC4. Worth going out and buying a digibox for now they can be had for under £30.
Even if I didn't get to bed till 1 a.m. but was then awake till 2.30. because of hubby's snoring!(too much information!)

sorry about you're not fending of offers Jon - I just picked up on all the chat about gigs. Any of our American friends out there who could remedy this?

I take your point about showbiz, I suppose in a way that's where the difference lies. Bonny has taken his heritage out to the market place and gone after record contracts, tours etc. Whereas the Copper family seem to do other jobs - or should I say jobs other than music.

I just thought it was nice the obvious reverence with which you seem to be held - and believe me when the subject of the Copper family comes up amongst folkies, the tone of conversation goes distinctly reverential! It made me think a bit of reverence wouldn't go amiss with one or two other of the grizzled bonces on our folk scene.

The Yetties and many others richly deserve more recognition.

But I would say that we are certainly not 'fending off offers to tour the states' and you're dead right, it certainly ain't show business - if it were we wouldn't be anywhere near it.

Ours is the simple enjoyment of simple music by simple people (us) which we adore to sing as a family and occasionally, when be-stirred, share with others who are interested. Performance is another thing altogether.

What a wonderful programme Coppersongs was. I'm so glad I saw Bob Copper at his last birthday party in Lewes. As we saw from the programme, the Royal Oak was packed to the gills to hear this wonderful man and his family sing. I count myself as privilaged to have seen and heard a man who has done so much to keep our traditional music and culture alive, and a family who are determined to see that legacy continue.

stayed up til 3.30 to catch the repeat. Fantastic programme.

When I first heard the Watersons in the 60's and later saw revivalist singers at places like the Jolly Porter in Exeter - the unaccompanied singing was a bit of a puzzling revelation to me. the watersons said they used to sing together as a family, but it was always a bit of a mystery to me what they actually meant. To see the routine of this activity was both charming and elucidating.

Perhaps I am being unfair but it seems to me that we don't make quite enough of Bonny Sartin of the Yetties in this country. Heres a guy whose family was an important source for the Hammonds collection. Really we're talking about a primary source.

However whilst the Copper family seem to be getting royal recognition and fending off offers to tour the states - the yetties are doing a gig near Weymouth pier - lot of the time for uncomprehending tourists, and as an eminence gris, they didn't seem to be accorded too much eminence at the recent Weymouth Folk Festival.

Still I guess thats showbusiness - those are the breaks!

I caught this program last night, sunday, and I only join in here to say thanks for drawing our attention to it. What a wonderful bunch of people the Copper family are!

BBC4 stuff is sometimes repeated on BBC2. I hope this is one of them.

I've just glanced at some of the comments up there talking about his 'purism'. Did you hear him talking about first hearing a recording of Sleepy John Estes? Did that sound like a guy with a closed mind?

I can only echo the other voices that have said what a superb programme this was. It was an honour to share a short time with Bob and his family, even though it was on TV. Having been brought up in Sussex the Copper family were always there in the background along with many other source singers of the time. The tears came at the funeral. I had seen the stills but to see the procession through the town tugged at the heart strings. Forget the arguing about being a purist or how many times it was shown, just be thankful, and proud, that we had someone of his calibre in our tradition and that we still have the family to carry it on.

I cannot let Richard's remarks...

"2. A friend of mine still refuses to go back to the Coppers old club because when (some time ago) he (my friend) accompanied himself singing "The Cutty Wren" on the guitar, Bob Copper allegedly made him feel very uncomfortable about using a non-traditional instrument (for English folk music) "

...go unchallenged. Firstly, the Coppersongs Folk Club has not been running for at least 16 years, so his friends' boycott was a wise decision as any return would have been a wasted journey. But more importantly, having known Bob extremely well for most of my adult life this remark just doesn't ring true in any way. He was no purist and was encouraging of almost anything he heard in the way of interpretation of traditional music and even if (and this is extremely unlikely) it wasn't 'his cup of tea' he most certainly would never have voiced that opinion to the musician concerned. When it came to meeting and in his relationships with strangers - folkies or anyone - Bob was never less than kind, generous with his time and exuberant and encouraging with his praise. Incidentally, he had a catholic taste in music and was known to strum the guitar himself much to the horror of some BBC people in the early 50's!

Would that I had his tolerance, good humour and generosity of spirit. I try but I fail.

Right, I've just used the link Malcolm gave to send my thanks to BBCFour, not just for the Bob Copper programme, but for the Eliza Carthy Concert and the repeat of the Sidmouth documentary which were also on tonight. And I said that, if they were scrapping all the TV channels, and keeping just the one, it'd have to be BBCFour.

I hope the rest of the people who loved this chance to see Bob Copper given the respect he deserved will do the same. Feedback really does matter, especially in the wake of that stupid report last week slagging off this channel.

I just wonder whether Bob Copper was as dismissively purist as Richard suggests. Obviously I cannot speak for him, but I can vividly remember John Copper coming over to tell me how much he had enjoyed my accompaniment to Canadee-I-O, during a singaround some years ago.

Of course, Canadee-I-O isn't a Coppersong, and in addition he may well have been familiar with Nic Jones version ( my accompaniment was pretty much a note-for-note duplication ), but nonetheless ...

On the other side of the coin, I once made the mistake of singing Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy in a singaround in Sussex, with what I thought was a pretty nifty (and original) guitar accompaniment, and was immediately drowned out by the assembled company who weren't having any of it, and proceeded to sing the rest of the song as it should be sung.

I still like my version, however, although I would never dare to sing it in Sussex again.

btw, the programme tonight was absolutely wonderful, one of the best and most enjoyable productions I have ever seen.

Bob himself compared traditional song to a house; you can furnish it as you like, and put up your own wallpaper; but it's your duty and responsibility to pass it on to the next occupant intact and undamaged.

Don't forget to send a message to BBC4 thanking them for the programme. They appreciate feedback (especially the positive kind!) and the more they get, the more likely we are to see more things like this.

That was something that Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson made very clear - that although it's fantastic that the old ways and traditions are continued, they are allowed to evolve - even the younger generation of Coppers sing the same songs is a different way. From what I could see from the programme, Bob was very proud of them too.

I really liked it and cannot resist the reference to two other threads here and a knock on comment:

1. Perhaps, if we accept that the Coppers represented the preservation of the tradition, this puts paid to the suggestion that the English Tradition did not include harmony singing.

2. A friend of mine still refuses to go back to the Coppers old club because when (some time ago) he (my friend) accompanied himself singing "The Cutty Wren" on the guitar, Bob Copper allegedly made him feel very uncomfortable about using a non-traditional instrument (for English folk music)

3. I do several Coppers songs - with rhythmic guitar accompaniments - but I like them that way, resulting in the remark at Tenterden that if Bob Copper could have heard them he would be turning in his grave! I still like them, and ain't stopping.

I imagine it might have been a bit puzzling for people who hadn't come across this kind of music before, with only snatches of the songs. I hope some time they have a programme that gives people a chance to hear the songs in full. (That's not a complaint, mind. I think there's a lot to be said for giving people just a taster, enough to get them curious to get hold of more.)

Can't help feeling that some of these comments would be better made or at least echoed at the BBC4 site however bad it may be as I suspect more people involved would read there than read a 3rd party site although comments here will hopefully encourage more people to try for the BBC4 Folk output. In another sense, and an important one IMO MC has a much larger audience of people to attract.

I did enjoy the program. My own comments there were:

Well I watched it and enjoyed it. I think the biggest thing that came over to me was what a delightful character Bob Copper came accross as. I wish I'd had the honour of meeting him.

Outside music, I could add to that I could easily imagine Pip spending an hour with him simply discussing rural life...

Not everyone in the world has a video recorder Guest.... and not everyone has the sort of lifestyle that lets them stay up til 2.am to watch a programme that could be repeated at a more sensible time on a more accessible channel.

I did see it (French and Saunders wasn't all that good to be honest.... not the same edge to it as there used to be... maybe it will improve with time), and enjoyed it enormously. I like the bit about singing slowly and alternating lines so the singers could get a bite of rabbit pie in.

And yes, the final shot of their silhouettes with the golden sea behind them and the green field under their feet, with the sound of his laughter is one that should be immortalised somewhere.

Here is the BBC page about this programme, with the times, and an interview with the producer.

It was a lovely programme. It really makes me sick, those "experts" the other day people saying BBC4 is a waste of cash. Of course the problem is a lot of the best stuff is aimed at people who've got other things to do than sit and watch the telly, as this thread has shown.

Still most of us probably have video recorders we can set (if we can get BBC4 at all, of course). "What's the point of putting programmes on at that time of the night, not once, but bloody TWICE!" That's surely to allow for the fact that a lot of people like us are bound to set our video recorders wrong the first time...

The programme has a really great ending. You think it's going to stop with the notice saying he died four days after getting his MBE presented to him at Buckingham Palace - and then it has a lovely snatch of his commemoration parade and service. And then Bob surprises us all, by turning up once more, and it ends with him walking off into the sunset roaring with laughter. Marvellous.

Now, how do I go about setting this video to tape BBC4 at 2.15...

I'm sorry Liz, but what is your complaint? Would it be better if it wasn't repeated? If you are too untogether to either watch or record either broadcast, then I'm afraid that's your problem, not the BBC's.

Or you could ask the bloke down the street who's got to go out and doesn't know how the timer works on his recorder, even though he's had the machine for twelve years.

Its very good that all these channels are putting on shows about those in the folk galaxy. Wonder if the rest of us will ever get a look in.
