The show is called 'More than Museums' and the programme about Travellers is called 'James Collins makes a bucket'.

London, it was on RTE radio1 - I'm not sure if you can listen from across the puddle. Good luck. I'd be interested in other people's comments. I thought it was a good programme, especially hearing Travellers talk about culture.

Yad, if you follow the link in my previous post and select the programme 'James Collins makes a bucket', you should be able to listen to it online. I think you need realplayer to listen to it. Let me know if you have probs and I can try talking you through it.

Here you ago: Scroll down a bit to programme three on the page:

Programme 3: James Collins makes a Bucket - Listen

First broadcast 22nd January, '04

It had become apparent in the 1970s that the Traveller way of life was under serious threat in Ireland. There was a more general drift towards the towns but, in the case of Travellers, this was exacerbated and accelerated because the traditional trade of tin-smithing had become an anachronism - killed off by the ubiquity of plastic. Income was lost and to qualify for social welfare payments a permanent address was a necessity.

For the majority of Travellers today the open road is but a memory. Yet travellers insist they remain different and continue to value their separateness. Besides the tin-smiths, who were a vital part of the rural economy, Traveller musicians like the Keenans and Doran played an important role in the survival of Traditional Music. Travellers had told stories and brought news. They operated as migrant workers before the arrival of mechanisation.

In this programme James Collins, one of the few remaining tin-smiths, makes a bucket while a group of Traveller women discuss the importance of their culture - a culture that is still linked to the notion of the open road, something they all clearly yearn for.
