Notes

A radio-ballad is a sound tapestry woven of four basic elements: songs, instrumental music, sound effects, and the recorded voices of those with whose lives each programme deals. The radio-ballads were a joint creation by Ewan MacColl, Charles Parker and Peggy Seeger. These programmes were revolutionary at the time, using as they did the actual spoken words of the 'informants'. Up until this time, this 'actuality' (as the trio dubbed it) was transcribed and then interpreted by trained radio speakers. The radio-ballads led you effortlessly from song to music to sound effect to the spoken word and back again, revealing the effort of a way of life upon those who lead it. They are entertaining, informative, musical, poetic and educational. There were eight radio-ballads, created between 1957 and 1964. They are now reissued for the first time on CD by Topic.

The Fight Game was originally released in 1967.

The radio ballad is an audio documentary format created by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger, and Charles Parker in 1958. It combines four elements of sound: songs, instrumental music, sound effects, and, most importantly, the recorded voices of those who are the subjects of the documentary. The latter element was revolutionary; previous radio documentaries had used either professional voice actors or prepared scripts.

Charles Parker is most famous for the Radio Ballads, eight radio programmes he made with the folk singers and activists Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, which were broadcast on the BBC between 1958 and 1964 and are considered to be classics of radio production. The Radio Balladscombined four elements: the recorded voices of people speaking in their own words, which Parker called ‘actuality’; songs based on the actuality and on folk songs, often written by Ewan MacColl; instrumental music, arranged by Peggy Seeger; and sound effects  . The Fight Game (1963) about boxers. The Travelling People (1964) about the nomadic peoples of Britain. BBC: The Original Radio Ballads.
