Monday at 10 BBC 4

Post by Ancient Geek » Sun May 09, 2010 2:45 pm

I see that tomorrow Monday 10th May at 10 PM on BBC4 there is a programme "The Sailing Sixties" detailing the explosion in our sport in the 1960's no doubt crediting GRP etc but never mind could be worth a watch, it'll beat yet more election stuff!

I saw it and despite the opening clips of Dragons racing I do not think you missed too much, however I have in the past Clywedog a couple of years back to name but one manage to get a DVD from the production company by smoothie chopsing someone in the archive section the BBC and Anglia have been very good in this respect. Lay the flattery on with a trowel phrases like "I know you think as I do that we are here to help each other" raise a smile and co-operation.

I recorded it on the sky box, but don't know how to transfer that to anything else. Actually the bits on dinghies were very brief. Ie one second shot of Jack Holt followed by a two second shot of Barry Bucknall was about as exciting as you got. Most of the time was about Chichester's Atlantic crossing followed by other round the world exploits.

By the by a book describing Chichester's earlier solo travels in the bi-plane (gypsy moths of course) shows that his flying exploits and solving those navigational problems were much more demanding, challenging and innovative than sailing a boat across the Atlantic.

Dinghy Sailing can be pretty invisible....

Last week they played one of Uffa Fox's Sea-shanties on Radio 2.

In the pre-amble, they mentioned what a character he was, that he sailed with the Duke of E, that he was a boat designer....and had designed the flying lifeboat, that he ran the Cowes Sea Scouts and took them for outings across the channel to France etc etc, but they never mentioned anything about any dinghy that he ever designed or built.
