Thread Name: Anyone watching Morris?
Subject: RE: Anyone watching Morris?
The programme was really about the Morris Ring and their resistance to change. Our Morris side has had both women and men dancers performing mixed sets for at least 25 years now, and at most of the non-Ring Festivals around the UK you will find dozens of women and mixed Morris sides, but the programme tended to suggest it was a new phenomenon, good though it was overall, considering most TV presenters would not seriously have a go themselves.
