Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
i think Lord Reith would have approved, i thought the analysis was thoughtful, the announcements of names of speakers is not so important to new listeners perhaps as to those who have been involved for a while. the exposure to the songs and the analysis and context is possibly the most important.This is exactly the correct way to introduce folk song, much better than folk being part of some celebrity or pop star or competition,format. it is the music that is of paramount importance and its political and historical context ,excellent programme
