: A Speech and Sea Shantes

Following the Dinner of the Seven Seas Club, relayed from the Hotel
Cecit
The speech will be by Sir BURTON CHAD-WICK, M.P., and will be followed by five shanties sung by members of the Seven Seas Club.
Capstan shanties : '
' Fire down below'
' When Johnny comes down to Hilo'
Halyard shanty: 'Blow,'
Boys, Blow'
Capstan shanty: Roving'
Runaway shanty:
'Drunken Sailor '
THE SEVEN SEAS
CLUB, whose members are singing these Shanties tonight, was founded in 1922 by four old Conway boys, whose years spent in the ship covered the long period from 1878 until 1911. All four had served with distinction in the Great War. The Club very quickly became a popular rendezvous for officers and ex-officers of the Sea Services, and the membership is now nearly 1,000, all ranks, from Admirals downwards, being represented. Many of the members served at one time in sailing ships, where, of course, the sea shanty had its birth, so. that listeners can hear them sung this evening with an absolute fidelity to the old traditions; at the annual dinner, sea shanties are always a feature of the evening's festivity.
The club publishes its own book of Sea Shanties, under its own name-' The Seven Seas Shanty Book.'








About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
