A recorded impression of the catching of a salmon by David Glenn-Kerr
Recorded near Garvagh, County Londonderry
This programme is one of the many features recorded last summer in Northern Ireland by the BBC mobile recording unit during its visit to the Region. It is a sound-picture of the catching of a seven-pound salmon by David Glenn-Kerr, and was recorded near Garvagh, County Londonderry. The microphone was so placed that a vivid impression of the scene will be conveyedâ€”listeners will hear the conversation in low tones between the fisherman and commentator as the salmon is being played, the scream of the reel as the salmon races away, and the different note of the ratchet as the fish is brought back again and landed.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
