There was a fascinating programme on Alan Lomax and his work as a song collector this afternoon.  In the Great Lives series, Radio 4, 4 pm.  Interviews with Shirley Collins and Billy Bragg.  Repeated on Friday at 11 pm and, I assume, available on the iPlayer.  Well worth catching.

Here's the link.

A lot of the programmes in this series are well worth catching. And, since it's radio, they're available worldwide.

Many thanks, Andy.  That’s really helpful.  From your link, I see the programme can be downloaded, as can many of the earlier episodes (follow the link to the website).  Quite a few of these focus on musical figures – Brian Epstein, Captain Beefheart, Nina Simone, Ian Curtis, Kirsty MacColl, etc.  There are some interesting choices of presenter (Jim Carter on Lonnie Donegan, Cerys Matthews on Hildegard of Bingen)!

Yes, caught that. It's a good series.  I enjoyed the one on Malcolm Lowry, being a fan.
