Devised by Ewan MacColl, radio producer Charles Parker and Peggy Seeger, the Radio-Ballads set out to crystallise in words and music the experience of different ways of life - the words being supplied not by actors but by the real occupants of those lives and jobs, whether miners, fishermen, boxers or teenagers. This fourth Radio Ballad, the Big Hewer, is dedicated to mining and features real life recorded testomony of miners from several areas of Britian. These real people, not actors give us a vivid picture of a way of life that had lasted centuries. The project also features sound effects from the mines. We are indroduced to the Big Hewer, the towering figure of various coalfields. The music is wonderful and the whole project makes a good concept album. The presentation on CD is excellent and this is an important slice of history and a very interesting folk album.

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.
