Re: other Radio Ballads of interest:

[GMGough] has reminded me that there is another influential Radio Ballad that seriously needs rescuing:

"Last Shift" Radio Ballad was broadcast as part of The Andy Kershaw Show on BBC Radio 1 on 2nd June 1997.

[GMGough] opines "Last Shift" was a BBC studio recording based on Richard Thompson's "Industry". It seems that the broadcast was far more than a run through of the CD, but was presented in the style of a (MacColl) Radio Ballad."

Does anyone have a copy please?

Again does anyone have a copy of the radio prog. please?

With regards to "The Man Who Went To War" from 1944 the latest information is at:

A photo of the cast is at:

Efforts are being made to persuade the BBC to air this definitive programme again - 70 years after its first airing in 1944.
