  The British Seafarer by Michael Mason
Posted by: CJB666 - 10-16-2017, 02:01 PM - Forum: Requests - No Replies

There were 26 eps. in this series. We have half of them - which can be made available here. But we would rather complete the series first.

[size=undefined]Ideally we would like all episodes to cover for when a recording has a gap due to a cassette turnover event.

These are the episodes:

The British Seafarer
A history in 26 parts, in the words of those who have made the history. 


BBC Radio 4 FM
Sunday 13 April 1980 22.15

1: Introduction - The Deep Sea 
Sea covers 70 per cent of the globe; man himself was cradled in it. Our maritime history is a story which everyone thinks they know - and which on the whole they don't: the great unknown subject. It is an amazing human achievement, and all the more so because so much of it is salt sores, the stench of bilge-water, and weevily biscuits. 

Readers: GARARD GREEN. CAROLE BOYD, DAVID MARCH, TIMOTHY BATESON, NIGEL LAMBERT, RONALD BADDILEY, MICHAEL GOLDIE, ANTHONY HALL, DAVID CASEY. MALCOLM TERRIS, TIMOTHY BENTINCK, RONALD HERDMAN, LEONARD MAGUIRE, ROBERT TROTTER. GORDON GOSTELOW, HENRY KNOWLES, ROBERT LANG, DOUGLAS BLACKWELL and KATHLEEN HELM. 

Programme consultants and presenters: Basil Greenhill (Director, the National Maritime Museum) and Robin Craig (Lecturer in Economic History, University College, London) 

Special sound by DICK MILLS of the BBC Radio-phonic Workshop 

Series composed and directed by MICHAEL MASON, in collaboration with the National Maritime Museum 


BBC Radio 4 FM
Sunday 20 April 1980 22.15
Saturday 23 January 1982 15.30

2: Canvas, Hemp and Wood 
The three-masted wooden sailing ship is ' the space capsule of the Renaissance '. How she was made, how she worked, where she could go and what she could do shaped the sailor's life for him from the 15th century to the 19th. And she was ‘She:’ not ‘It.’ 

Readers MICHAEL GOLDIE, ANTHONY HALL, TIMOTHY BATESON, RONALD HERDMAN, LEONARD MAGUIRE, ROBERT LANG, DAVID MARCH, DAVID ASHFORD, ANTHONY NEWLANDS, HENRY KNOWLES, MALCOLM TERRIS, RONALD BADDILEY, GARARD GREEN, CAROLE BOYD and DOUGLAS BLACKWELL 

Programme consultant and presenter: Basil Greenhill, Director, National Maritime Museum. Greenwich 

Special sound by DICK MILLS of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop 

Series composed and directed by MICHAEL MASON, in collaboration with the National Maritime Museum.



BBC Radio 4 FM 
Sunday 27 April 1980 22.15

3: The High Seas 
The Elizabethan age was the first great explosion of British seafaring activity. Its achievements have rightly become legendary, but their reality was far removed from the legends of Westward Ho! and Errol Flynn. In this programme Elizabethan sailors themselves tell us what was achieved and what it cost. 

Readers MICHAEL GOLDIE, DAVID MARCH, TIMOTHY BATESON, GARARD GREEN, ANTHONY HALL, ROBERT LANG, DAVID ASHFORD, ANTHONY NEWLANDS, RONALD BADDILEY, GORDON GOSTELOW and NIGEL LAMBERT

Sunday 4 May 1980 22.15
Saturday 6 February 1982 15.30

4: The Merchants 
Whatever more a ship may be, she is certainly a machine for moving things from one place to another. Much of seafaring life has been shaped by the efforts of landsmen - the 17th- and 18th-century merchants for example - to get that job done as cheaply 

Readers ANTHONY HALL, TIMOTHY BATESON, DAVID MARCH, RONALD BADDILET, CARARD GREEN, GORDON GOSTELOW, HENRY KNOWLES, DAVID CASEY, NIGEL LAMBERT

Sunday 11 May 1980 22.15
Saturday 13 February 1982 15.30

5: Charts, Sea-Clocks and Stars 
Navigation is vital: without it rocks, shoals and the vastness of the open sea quickly become lethal. It depends on an odd partnership between the scientist in his study and the sailor on the poop - wet. cold. tired and not too keen on arithmetic anyhow. 

Readers NIGEL LAMBERT, MALCOLM TERRIS. GORDON GOSTELOW, ROBERT LANG, DAVID MARCH, ANTHONY HALL, MICHAEL GOLDIE, DAVID ASHFORD, RONALD BADDILEY. TIMOTHY BATESON, LEONARD MAGUIRE and JOE DUNLOP

6: The Complete Seaman 
A good candidate for the ideal British sailor is Captain Cook - merchant seaman, naval officer, explorer, scientist and humanitarian. In him the civilisation of the Enlightenment goes to sea and all-round seamanship is raised to the level of genius. with Ronald Baddiley as Captain Cook 

Readers ANTHONY HALL, HENRY KNOWLES, DOUGLAS BLACKWELL. MALCOLM TERRIS, DAVID MARCH, NIGEL LAMBERT. TIMOTHY BATESON, ROBERT TROTTER LEONARD MAGUIRE and GARARD GREEN

7: Stresses, Strains and Storms 
Seafaring has always been a hard and dangerous life, doing violence to men in many ways. Its stresses have been endured amazingly, but also rebelled against in many ways, from good-humoured grumbling to bloody mutiny. 

Readers LEONARD MAGUIRE NIGEL LAMBERT, HENRY KNOWLES. MICHAEL GOLDIS TIMOTHY BATESON, DAVID ASHFORD, ANTHONY HALL, MALCOLM TERRIS, GARARD GREEN GORDON GOSTELOW DAVID MARCH, RONALD BERDMAN, DOUGLAS DLACKWELL and RONALD BADDILEY

8: The Long Blockade 
The typical seafaring experience of the Age of Nelson was not battles like Trafalgar, but the endless daily endurance of maintaining command of the seas through 20 years of continuous blockade. And the great Unknown Warrior of this story is Admiral Collingwood.

9: Owners 
To the sailor, the ship owner has often been the Demon King who makes a fortune out of his dangers and sufferings. To the ship owner, shipping has often been a hazardous gamble - risky, slump-prone and subject to ruthless international competition.

The Industrial Revolution, the steel shipyard and the scientific naval architect create ships and seafaring, of a totally new kind: and new kinds of worker to design, build and power them. It is the age of the hammers of the Clyde and Tyne.

11: Missing, Lost and Saved 
Men and ships are small; the sea is vast, merciless, and terrifyingly powerful, and there is very little you can do about it. But that little has often included miracles of courage and skill which have proved just enough. 

Readers NIGEL LAMBERT, GORDON GOSTELOW. LEONARD MAGUIRE, RONALD BADDILEY, GARARD GREEN, DAVID CASEY DOUGLAS BLACKWELL, MALCOLM TERRIS, ROBERT LANG, MICHAEL GOLDIE, HENRY KNOWLES, ROBERT TROTTER and ANTHONY NEWLANDS

12: The Tramp and the Liner 
The tramp steamer was a legend of rust, soot, decks awash and dirty, smelly cargoes bound for steamy or icy ports. The liner was a legend of Metro-Goldwyn-baroque décor; blazing lights, haute cuisine and triple expansion engines 40 foot high. The legends were not too far from reality.

13: Fisherman
Small-craft fishing has probably changed less over the centuries than almost any other kind of seafaring. Its centre is timeless - wet, cold and the heavy weight of the catch.

14: Paradise Street and Ratcliffe Highway 
The ' sailortowns ' of the great industrial ports of the 19th-century and the early 20th were two-faced: havens of boozy, bawdy bliss and disaster areas where hordes of greedy parasites fleeced the sailor in days of what he earned in years.

15: Engine-room and Stokehold 
In the great steamer the bridge was a gold-braided Olympus; the engine-room a kind of underworld; and the stokehold Hades itself. Yet engineers could regard their huge machines with almost religious devotion; and the sub-human stoker of legend plied in fact a skilled trade.

There was a torrent on the old radioarchive which had almost all of the Adam and Joe Show BBC6 Radio podcasts, as well as some earlier podcasts by them like the Coke podcast they did.

They've done more BBC6 shows since that torrent was released, too.

Anyone have any Adam and Joe podcast material?

The old RA.cc had a rule of only 128kbps files being allowed.

However get_iplayer is now able to download at 320kbps from the new DASH servers. And even FLAC is available from some Beeb streams.

Can these rates and formats be accommodated here?

  Seedboxes?
Posted by: incorrect - 09-26-2017, 11:38 AM - Forum: Questions & Answers - Replies (3)

Hi there again. I don't bother to post this question among the larger/more established trackers, because essentially all allow it, but I wanted to make sure my use of seedboxes is OK. On a site like this with tiny files, I doubt I will be using these machines to gobble huge amounts of ratio. However, I am a person constantly embarrassed by a set of computers inherited from friends a decade ago, with constantly rotating and replacing hard drives, and frequently I find it simply convenient to download to a stable computer. It is sometimes convenievnt to keep files on these systems while I multi-format various drives or re-arrange which computer is to be my torrent machine.

I rent two in europe, and both are dedicated IP (i.e. I don't share a 'slice' with anyone, they are the same as if they were just another computer of my own but with an actually decent upload speed.) There would never be any IP conflicts, just a notice that I apparently use computers on several continents.

While this would be helpful, and most trackers find no objection, I wanted to be sure:

1. Can I use these dedicated IP machines as simple torrent devices? Would be the same as if I downloaded at my mum's house, just another unique IP belonging to me. Some stricter trackers allow this if one "registers" the IP of one's seedboxes by sending a note to staff, which is fine and an easy policy for us to adhere to.

2. Are we allowed to sign in via these dedicated IP machines? This is much more iffy in the tracker worlds....some insist that one only logs in via their home system (and can then download to their seedbox), while others allow sign-in from seedbox as a matter of course or by permission. For instance, if I visit my friends in Boston but want to download something to impress them with how culturally advanced and British I am, the easiest way to access the site/tracker (besides the questionable practice of logging in from their house) is to use a simple web/ssh tunnel to my seedbox, so all my web traffic goes through that machine and also downloads to that machine, allowing me to download via FTP or some such later. Again, with a dedicated IP, there should be no question of multiple or conflicting IPs as in a cheaper shared seedbox "slice." A not precisely frequently occurrence, but for someone who travels a lot like me, this is an important question to avoid becoming banned. It is possible to route all traffic back to my home and pretend I am logging in/downloading from there, but frankly it is much, much harder to set up correctly Wink

It's early and sorry if I'm not being perfectly precise. Will answer questions and offer alternatives I can think of if the powers that be are unsure. In any event, thanks for consideration!

  The Way It Is
Posted by: theprisoner - 09-04-2017, 10:34 AM - Forum: Requests - Replies (5)

This was a topical late night show satirising both the weekly news and those who created and reported on it, running from around 1998-2001. Headed by the wonderful Simon Evans with support from Tracey-Ann Oberman, Dave Lamb, Chris Pavlow, Sanjeev Bhaskar and others. I've got a few of these shows which I could upload but they are not always correctly identified as to date of broadcast or series/episode id. Does anyone have any which perhaps could be merged into a decent torrent?

Don't bother reading Wikipedia about it - most of that short article was written by me.
