Table of Contents

Part 1 Our genial host welcomes us and shows us round the inn: the Jolly Herring; the mountain dew; the gulls o' Invergordon. Part 2 Work is done for the day...: right said Fred; hole in the ground; drill, ye tarriers, drill; indeed I would; Settle-Carlisle railway; coal-hole cavalry; this old hammer. Part 3 ...so it's time for relaxed conversation, ranging from portraits of absent friends...: the broadside man; Timothy Winters; Pete was a lonely mongrel dog who lived in central Wigan, Lancs; Bob the pedigree sheepdog; football crazy; cotton Jenny. Part 4 ...to some critical comments on the atmospheric conditions: leave them a flower; across the hills; pollution; air; my last cigarette. Part 5 It has to be admitted that some of the tales are a little unlikely...: I'm the urban spaceman; Colonel Fazackerley; where did you get that hat?; the field of the willows; mole in a hole; hopalong Peter. Part 6 ...but the atmosphere's good and there's no shortage of great old stories: MacPherson's farewell; hangman; whiskey in the jar; Turpin hero; high Germany; the bonnie lass o'Fyvie; John Barleycorn; Casey Jones; the gypsy Davey; the gypsy rover; the Ellan Vannin tragedy. Part 7 The country folk sit in one corner...: Dorset is beautiful; fling it here, fling it there; green lanes; land of the old and grey; if it wasn't for the 'ouses in between. Part 8 ...and the matelots in another: the drunken sailor; can't you dance the polka; haulaway Joe; Santy Anna; the leaving of Liverpool; the Marco Polo; the wreck of the John B; pay me my money down; fulera mama; whip jamboree. Part 9 The old heartaches ache once more...: the Curragh of Kildare; the girl I left behind; sweet Willie; handsome Molly; the water is wide; once I had a sweetheart; Liverpool Lou. Part 10 ...but our host, preferring a cheerful atmosphere, interrupts with "Have a round on me"...: the orchestra song; I'm not strong, sir; have you seen the ghost of Tom?; whose pigs are these?; the barmaid in Sale. Part 11 ...and finally gets us together for some old favourites...: Lady Madonna; Penny Lane; the windmills of your mind; an Eriskay love lilt; sailing; the yellow rose of Texas; messing about on the river; the lightning tree; I can see for miles; Scarborough Fair; the wild mountain thyme. Part 12 ...to all of which we can only say...: thank U very much.
