Subject: RE: New book - Legacies of Ewan MacColl
He did some recording of Harry Cox along with Alan Lomax - not sure of the date.
Before that, he worked with Joan Littlewood on a programme entitled 'The Ballad Hunter' but that was way back
Doc once said that he was recording in Padstow at one time - not sure when.
Radio Ballads were made between 1958 and 1962 - Singing the Fishing in 1960
The actuality was recorded within a couple of months of them being broadcast.
Ewan also did some documentary work for the Beeb with Denis Mitchell.
