Thanks Dave, an interesting programme too.

The Folk of the Pennines
To celebrate 50 years of the Pennine Way, Mark Radcliffe travels the route from Derbyshire to Scotland and meets up with poets, folk musicians, historians and local people along the way. (2015)

i "Singer Bella Hardy performs her song 'Peak Rhapsody' at the starting point of the Pennine Way, and Mark bumps into Kate Rusby at Top Withens - the supposed inspiration for Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights. Kate and Damien O'Kane perform 'The Lark' sat in the ruins of the old farmhouse, looking out over Haworth Moor and the Pennine Way."
ii "He meets up with Teesside folk group The Young'uns, who give a rousing performance of the Graeme Miles' song 'Jack Ironside'."
iii "...meets up with Scottish folk singer Emily Smith who performs the Border Ballad 'The Dowie Dens o'Yarrow'."
