John Peel – BBC4 Monday

BBC4’s Liverpool on the Box season features three programmes with our John providing the voice over duties. Two of which you will no doubt have seen before and probably already have archived, but the first, Chambré Hardman and the Lost City of Liverpool, is a new one on me. Looks good!

Monday 18th August 19.30-20.00
Chambré Hardman and the Lost City of Liverpool

“The life and career of Liverpool photographer Edward Chambre Hardman, whose work captured the people and city of Liverpool during its pre-war heyday.”

Monday 18th August 01:25-02.15
Rock Family Trees: The Mersey Sound

“The rise and fall of the Mersey Beat scene during the 60s, including a look at the Beatles, the Searchers, Gerry and the Pacemaker and Billy J Kramer.”

Monday 18th August 02:15-03.05
Rock Family Trees: The New Mersey Beat

“A look at the next generation of bands after Mersey Beat to emerge from Liverpool including Echo and the Bunnymen, the Teardrop Explodes, OMD and the Lightning Seeds.”

    There’s a version of the Chambré Hardman doc over at thebox, and it’s a pretty decent encode as I recall. And as well as benefiting from a Peel voiceover, one of the portraits featured in the show is of a very young J P Ravenscroft and his mother…

    Speaking of Peel articles, I have some somewhere from the NME circa late 70s, I’ll take a look…

    Me too! Also, I have a long Peel and Walters interview from Melody Maker in 1978 and a couple of NME Peel things from the late ’80s/early ’90s. Trouble is, those large old music paper pages are a bugger to scan in.

    Yes it's the same problem with the Radio Times, though not as bad, and some may not be full page width.

    But I too have some old NME/Melody Maker/Sounds. I've been visualising the process:
    scan top left;
    scan top right;
    scan middle left;
    scan middle right;
    scan bottom left;
    scan bottom right;
    crop each;
    adjust brightness/colour/hue etc of each;
    match & join;
    export 12MB image;
    notice you've missed a bit;

    Found one juicy interview from 1979 (not in original scanned version unfortunately) – maybe you already have it…


    Have some other stuff, will search for it in the archives!
