Vin2 BBC 4 Sea songs and Shanties (135* d) RE: Shanties BBC4 right now 07 Jun 10

Sorry, my previous bit was a reply to a post from Ray Padgett on a new thread.

I'm sure the programme did have a few inaccuracies and probably, in the eyes of those more learned on the subject, been done a lot better.

However, for all its minus points it was a perhaps a good introduction to a history of a once great industry on our isle since 'butchered', in my umble opinion, on the alter of economics and politics (sorry for rant). Maybe some younger viewers, especially perhaps those who witnesssed the filming, who are new to the subject might pursue it further. In that sense alone, the programme was a plus mark for tv.
