Ewan MacColl

£7.99

Product description

BRAND NEW AND SEALED
Devised by Ewan MacColl, radio producer Charles Parker and Peggy Seeger, the Radio-Ballads set out to crystallise in words and music the experience of different ways of life - the words being supplied not by actors but by the real occupants of those lives and jobs, whether miners, fishermen, boxers or teenagers. The eight programmes were first broadcast by the BBC between 1958 and 1964. The final radio-ballad, The Travelling People, was considered by MacColl to be the perfect subject for the new form: the gipsies and tinkers. Despite the pressures of tighter budgets and production schedules, the team travelled extensively in England and Scotland, recording over 300 hours of "people talking about what it means to be a tenth-rate citizen in a civilised land".
