Subject: RE: Internet broadcast Ballad of Ewan MaColl
Re: Ballad of Ewan MacColl. Hmm - tracked down this film. It was not Arena. It is not really archval. It was aired in 1990!!!

There is another radio prog. about MacColl but from 2015.

Sadly the Manchester Event is not airing the 'lost' radio ballads: 'The Iron Box' 'Off Limits' 'The Stone of Tory' 'The Jewellry' 'A Cry from the Cut' - not even 'Romeo & Juliet.' And what about the films: 'The Big Hewer' 'The Fight Game' 'The Shoals of Herring'? And what about MacColl's series 'The Song Carriers'?
