This week's Mike Harding show on BBC Radio 2 is a Martin Carthy special with a long interview. The interview is also available for download as a podcast on the BBC website but unfortunately I can't access it from outside the UK. Can someone help me getting it?

There is a little programe called "Expat Shield" just for such emergencies.
I have used it to view quite a few of the Folk programmes which say "Not Available in your Area" or whatever nasty message it is.
Give it a try Reihard, it is free.

Actually the Radio progs usually work with no problem.
I am listening to your link right now, in Canada, Expat Shield works for the blocked TV programmes.

Thank you, Ross, JohnB and Chris B. I now installed a nice program called WireTap Studio on my Mac and recorded the audio stream with it.
It's quite eays to use - the most difficult thing was wading through way too many menus to pay for the license ...

And then maybe an upload to Mediafire / Rapidshare / RadioArchive.cc for those without the necessary streaming capture s/w?

Les, if you prefer I can try to be a grumpy Mudcatter, but it'll be difficult as I'm way too happy because of just having got Peter Bellamy's "Oak, Ash & Thorn" CD reissue.

The Mike Harding Show

11 May 2011 19:00 on BBC Radio 2.

Mike Harding presents a special edition of his folk and acoustic programme dedicated to the hugely influential singer and musician Martin Carthy. As he approaches his 70th birthday, Martin joins Mike for the entire programme and talks us through the many and varied stages of his remarkable career. The man who inspired Paul Simon and Bob Dylan takes us back to his early days in skiffle bands and London coffee bars, and re-traces his musical steps through periods with Dave Swarbrick, Steeleye Span, The Watersons, the Albion Country Band, Brass Monkey, Waterson:Carthy and The Imagined Village. Celebrated for his superb, percussive guitar playing and natural flair for arranging traditional songs, Martin Carthy was an important figure at the centre of the 1960s and 1970s folk revival in Britain. His scholarly method of learning songs from detailed source materials, combined with his compelling performances and definitive recordings, made him an inspiration to many on the folk scene and beyond. As husband to Norma Waterson, brother-in-law to Mike Waterson and the late Lal Waterson, and father to Eliza Carthy, he is part of England's "first family of folk", who've never been far from the heart of British folk music since The Watersons began recording in the mid 1960s. Martin joined the band alongside Norma, Mike and Lal in 1972. With Norma and Eliza he formed the successful Waterson:Carthy in the 1990s. Martin Carthy's innovative work with folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span, folk and brass band Brass Monkey (formed in the early 80s) and multi-cultural fusion project The Imagined Village (formed in 2004) are testament to both his creativity and longevity as an artist. His honours and prizes include an MBE for services to music and three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including one as recently as 2007 for his revived duo with Dave Swarbrick. As Martin releases a new career retrospective CD and prepares for an all-star birthday concert at London's Southbank Centre, he takes time out to reflect on the key moments of his 50-year career, illustrated by selected musical highlights.

I've just clicked on the BBC link given by CJB above; what I got was a 13 sec recording of a BBC announcer saying that the podcast is Not Available Outside The UK.

"I've just clicked on the BBC link given by CJB above; what I got was a 13 sec recording of a BBC announcer saying that the podcast is Not Available Outside The UK."

You were not supposed to click per se on the MP3 link, but do a right mouse click / save target as ...

If that doesn't work then got to the Mike Harding pages and you mght be able to play the clip, if so then you can record the audio.

Or maybe you'll have to use ExpatShield first.

Or create an account with TheBox.bz and do a torrent download.

Or PM the guy whose already downloaded it and he'll send you a link to wheresoever he has uploaded it to.

Good luck...

Thanks for the info folks. A fab interview with some great memories - remember seeing Steeleye in concert for first time after releasing 'Please to See the King' - they were awsome, just like the album, and Martin, still is.

Just listened to the interview. Martin is a very talented and nice guy which is just what you want to promote Folk. Was nice to hear martin's intro on how famous flower of serving men came about one of my favourites so many verses!

I've archived this in downloadable form on Soundcloud for anyone who missed the original broadcast or who wasn't able to hear it on iPlayer. It's here:

Martin Carthy on Mike Harding 11 May 2011

In addition, I've also archived a handful of other radio programmes featuring Carthy (as well as a couple of interviews recorded live at Cambridge Folk Festival):

Folkweave: Live at Cambridge Folk Festival 1977 (BBC 1978)
Imagined Village Interview: Cambridge Folk Festival 2008
Topic Records interview: Cambridge Folk Festival 2009
Lost Albums: Bright Phoebus (2007)
Once In A Blue Moon: The songs of Lal Waterson (2010)
Imagined Village live at Cambridge Folk Festival 2010
Norma Waterson: "Gift" interview July 2010
Martin Carthy: WNYC Public Radio interview 2005
Concerning Franklin and his Gallant Crew (2010)
Three tracks from a 1983 John Peel session

I have a few other programmes on tape, mostly from the late 80s/early 90s, that I'm going to work on transferring to digital format over the next couple of months. When I do they'll appear on the "On Air" section my website so keep a look out.

Really enjoyed the Mike Harding interview via Kev's link. The interview is long enough that full songs, rather than just clips, are included. Have bookmarked Kev's site - thanks for all that!

I've also now archived a 2005 Radio 3 programme where Stephen Johnson discusses how Percy Grainger and Ralph Vaughan Williams used folk song material in their compositions and Martin Carthy sings extracts from "Dives and Lazarus", "Come All You Worthy Christian Men", "Maria Marten / The Murder In The Red Barn", "Come All You Worthy Christian Men" (again) and "Star Of The County Down".
