Subject: RE: Change at the BBC folk awards
The folk music boom of the 60's and 70's produced some amazing stuff and none of it was filmed properly - Vin Garbutt, Roy Harris, Gerry Lockran. Derek Brimstone, Hamish Imlach, The Watersons Mk 1. And yet I seem to have seen ten million programmes with Aly Blain sitting in a circle with some folk glitterati smirking at each other as they churned out some unmemorable cobblers.

Even ignoring your apostrophe abuse, ignorance of Travelling For A Living and gross overstatement ("millions"? really?) you really do have a problem. Think it through: they didn't film a lot back then so you begrudge them filming a lot right now? Oh, I see, they should only film old cobblers that you like? Derek Brimstone? Oh give us a break!
