Has anyone else noticed that the Radio Ballads are available on the Internet? I'm currently listening to the one about the travellers. Great stuff. Now, if only I could get the hang of the blue clickies...

Gosh I'm an idiot. It's in the BBC radio player. I expect you can work out how to find it. I hope. Apparently there are some modern radio ballads on there too.

It's a real treat listening to the radio ballads. I never heard the orginals in their entirety, only snippets of them. And here they are again, thanks to the wonders of computers.

Actually, I think that link only takes you to extracts of the radio ballads. I got the full radio ballads on the bbc radio player.

I can see I have a lot of listening to do. I bought a couple of the Radio ballads on CD. I enjoyed them - but I admit I listened to them only once. I wasn't motivated to buy more - but I'd certainly like to listen to them all, once or twice.

Determinedly trying to get this url onto here. Here goes again. Afraid it's still copy and paste from this.

http://www.bbc.tv/radio/aod/genres/musicdoc/audiolist.shtml

Yes, I have a lot of listening to do to. I hope the bbc link stays up a while as I'm away from home for a hoiday on Thursday. Off to Turriff to see a cousin. Am calling in on Aberdeen for a couple of nights. Will be going to an event hosted by the Elphinstone Institute on the Scottish Traveller Culture. I'll be seeing my old friend Stanley Robertson again (Jeannie's nephew). I wonder if any of his family were on that Travelling People radio ballad...

I think the radio ballads have been uplifted as part of the publicity for their modern counterparts; don't know how long they'll be up there.

They are available on CD from Topic - but that means buying them.
Well worth while as far as I'm concerned

I will probably buy some, if not all of them.

I'm busy packing now for my trip up north.

Got my accommodation in Whitby booked for folk week.

Northerner,

Is this the page you were thinking of?

BBC radio player - Radio Ballads

(And thanks for the link. I'm eager to listen once I get home from work.)

Mike Harding said last night that all the ballads would remain on the BBC website, not be subject to the usual 7 day listen again limit.

Re. the original ballads on the BBC website: one day recently I found (not sure how, now) that although it said "Listen to a 20-min extract", in some cases (not all) it would start playing and then play the whole thing through (about an hour in each case). However there were some where I didn't seem to be able to do that. When I tried to do it again a couple of days later, I found I could only get the 20 mins' worth of each. Does anyone know if there's a way to get the whole hour of each? Or maybe the BBC varies how much you can hear according to load on the website or something? I think the only one I haven't heard all the way through now is the Fight Game - if anyone can point me to a link where I can listen to the whole of that, I'd be grateful.

Cheers

Scrump
