BBC -
From Dots to Downloads - Tune-Books on the Web

broadcast & available for 30 days :
July 2009
May 2015
November 2018

Tim van Eyken, award-winning young singer and squeezebox player, reveals how today's musicians are rediscovering 'tune books', small manuscript books of music that were in use from the late-17th to the mid-19th century.

They are now sharing them, in the way that musicians always have, but nowadays online, so that all over the world, people are playing these tunes once again in an ongoing global virtual session.

Well spotted. That programme, first broadcast in 2009 was first repeated in 2005 - but perhaps went unnoticed. I don't usually read R4X listings.

Wouldn't be good if the BBC allowed you to attach an alert to a missed programme, so you got an email if ever it were re- broadcast?

The iPlayer radio app has been replaced by 'BBC Sounds' BTW. The original continues to work but you can't download it - at least not from the usual places.

So is it to be broadcast this November? Or have I somehow missed it?

You missed it. It was on an hour ago :(

But it's on BBC iPlayer Radio BBC Sounds for the next month :)

Ah, now I understand - it was Radio 4 Extra. I had Radio 4 on all evening so I was puzzled as I heard a very different programme.

Sorry Jos.
I hadn't even noticed it was 4Extra.
Actually I see it was on at 06.30a.m. GMT
I'd spotted it a few months ago trawling through lists of documentaries and given it a '+'. That way a programme plays in my iPlayerRadio as and when it becomes available.


[I really don't like the look of the 'Sounds' app so I'm keeping away from it for as long as possible.
:( I didn't realise they'd actually stopped downloads of iPlayerRadio]

Actually I discovered it's still on Google Play, but some or all the BBCs own links to it - such as the one in your earlier sig - have been redirected.

I doubt if it will be updated, though, so may stop working. And depending on your version of Android, or something, you also need their separate player app, and that might stop being compatible.

I don't know how it all works on iThings.

Maybe we have missed some very important points re Mr ABC.

He is an superior bagpipe/whistle/sax player, and a very proficient dancer/demonstrator for Kerry Fletcher. And playing for her workshops you need to be very flexible. Musically & danceably.

And he plays in Angles, Moltenamba and the Climax Ceilidh Band. If you dance French &/or ceilidh you already know that. Excellent dance bands.

And, if you wanted to be envious he is a really nice bloke, and a PhD I believe.

And he gave us ABC.

You know, some things just chime with the public and ABC does that.

Thankyou Chris (from a drummer & dancer)

PS there is one thing that any musical notation struggles with, dance - trust me. But you can add text instruction, it is just easier with ABC.

Yes, thanks to Chris. abc is very useful for hammering bits of choir music alto lines into my skull. Just putting it in and checking it is right does half the job, but I can chop it small and go over the difficult bits or play longer sections.
I'm slowly getting quicker at writing it.
All this learning by ear / from dots debate doesn't mention one thing. We all first learnt to SING by ear but many of us were first taught to PLAY from the dots. But in practise we all use both methods for both. Our ear tells us if we've played a wrong note and the dots are needed to check our singing (via an instrument or computer if sight reading is poor)
