I forced myself to watch about 55 minutes and agree with Will Fly's friends: "Dire". I love jazz and blues but didn't hear any here. I saw one unbelievably bad number by Beverley Martin, a crap version of Angie by someone who I believed would do better, two other female singers as bad as any floor singers that I have ever suffered, rubbish from Donovan Leitch and part of an unmemorable song about Jansch learning Blackwater Side, waffle by some talking heads and an unbelievable filmed insert of someone in a mock up self recording booth doing Needle of Death.The whole thing reminded me again of why I gave up going to folk clubs.

Unbelieveable.

The bizarre moment for me was Beverley Martin (on the strength of appearing on the cover of his second album) singing a Bob Dylan song!!

Contrary to earlier opinion The Neil Young version of Needle had me in tears. Granted it was a poor quality recording but the sincerity shone through. Took me right back to being 18, sharing a flat with a friend and playing that album on the turntable until we could hardly hear anything for the crackling.

I watched a few minutes and then switched off. I met up with some friends this afternoon - their comment: "Dire", so I doubt that I'll bother.

If you want to know about Bert Jansch, read "Dazzling Stranger".

I loved that song Ralph wrote about Bert and Anne Briggs. It would have been nice to hear her sing Blackwaterside.

I hope he records it. I have the boxed set of his lovesongs and I can't recall it being on.

such a beautiful song about young love's passing nature as opposed to the permanence of great art.

for now I think we all see Jansch's Blackwaterside - as a monumental piece in the history of acoustic guitar.

Accepted. Wizz Jones was good too. And Thompson's bass. And the other bass with the beard, and one of the kit drummers. McTell made an acceptable doing of Anji, although the concentration showed!

quite liked fresh as a sweet summer morning.

Ralph and Wizz were sublime as usual. lots of the rest I didn't care for.

how come none of these bbc4 wallahs have never given Wizz an in concert programme. l

he's 74 years old now. I don't feel the evidence should be destroyed showing what the smart arses decided wasn't folk music. his fingers are at genius level. right now!

A great English voice and folk song technique.

if you don't like jazz and blues - its not likely you would dig the programme. Bert Jansch didn't spend his life in a remote Sussex village. his folk music reflects his ability to absorb all sorts of genres into his technique.

I think the only bit I REALLY enjoyed was Martin Carthy's SUBLIME accompaniment. I think there is a Jansch in session thingy at half-past-midnight.

D'you know, Tunesmith, that was exactly my thought when I looked at the Radio Times just now!

I shan't hear it tonight - out at a club - but will catch up with it on the iPlayer sometime over the weekend.

It seems strange using a phrase, "folk, blues and beyond", associated with Davy Graham for a programme about Bert!

If you go to the website for the programme there are a number of clips from it. I don't know if those clips are available to those of you outside the UK or not.
