It is produced by the Met Office and broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. The forecasts sent over the Navtex system use a similar format and the same sea areas.

  • The Hobbit read as the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast

    This video is for our British friends. If you are not British then you may find this video utterly baffling. Like so many bookloving Brits, I grew up listening to the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. It's in my blood. Dogger, Fisher, German Bight - those shipping area names conjure up many images and memories. Not so long ago, I was reading The Hobbit to one of my daughters when the shipping forecast popped into my head as I stared at Tolkien's illustration of Thorin's map. Could the flow, style and unique cadence of the Shipping Forecast be adapted into the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and Smaug? Yes, easily. By the way, my favourite book about the Shipping Forecast is 'Attention All Shipping' by Charlie Connelly where the intrepid author visits all the shipping areas featured in t...

  • Classic BBC Radio Theme ~ Shipping Forecast (Sailing By)

    This is "Sailing By" composed by Ronald Binge in 1963, and performed by the Alan Perry/William Gardner Orchestra, and is the version used by the BBC for its late night shipping forecast. Sailing By is played every night on BBC Radio 4 at around 00:45hrs before the late Shipping Forecast. Its tune is repetitive, assisting in its role of serving as a signal for sailors tuning in to be able to easily identify the radio station. It also functions as a buffer — depending on when the final programme before closedown finishes, Sailing By (or part of it) is played as a 'filler' as the shipping forecast starts at 00:48hrs precisely. The initial reason for its introduction was because of the indeterminate finish time for the preceding Midnight News, leading to filling music being played until the...

BACKGROUND The Shipping Forecast is a live BBC Radio broadcast of spoken weather reports and forecasts for the seas around the coasts of the British Isles. It is produced by the Met Office and broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. The forecasts sent over the Navtex system use a similar format and the same sea areas. The waters around the British Isles are divided into 31 sea areas, also known as weather areas (see map at close). There are four broadcasts per day at the following (UK local) times: 0048 – transmitted on FM and LW. Includes weather reports from an extended list of coastal stations at 0052 and an inshore waters forecast at 0055 and concludes with a brief UK weather outlook for the coming day. The broadcast finishes at approximately 0058. 0520 – transmitted on FM and LW. Includes weather reports from coastal stations at 0525, and an inshore waters forecast at 0527. 1201 – normally transmitted on LW only. 1754 – transmitted only on LW on weekdays, as an opt-out from the PM programme, but at weekends transmitted on both FM and LW. The unique and distinctive sound of these broadcasts has led to their attracting an audience much wider than that directly interested in maritime weather conditions. INTRODUCTORY MUSIC The last broadcast of the Shipping Forecast at 0048 each day is traditionally preceded by the playing of "Sailing By", a light orchestral piece by Ronald Binge. This is only very rarely omitted, generally when the schedule is running late. Though occasionally played in full, it is common for only a section of the piece to be broadcast; that section being the length required to fill the gap between the previous programme's ending and the start of the forecast at precisely 0048. More importantly, "Sailing By" serves as a vital identification tool – it is distinctive and as such assists anyone attempting to tune in. The forecast is then followed by the National anthem and the closedown of the station for the day, with the BBC World Service taking over the frequencies after the pips of the Greenwich Time Signal at 0100. THIS FILM On 18 December 1993, as part of the Arena Radio Night, BBC Radio 4 and BBC 2 collaborated on a simultaneous broadcast so the shipping forecast – read that night by Laurie Macmillan – could be seen as well as heard. To date, it is the only time that it has been broadcast on television. (Courtesy of Wikipedia). YouTuber RandomRadioJottings kindly agreed to my cross-posting the footage he posted on his lovely Channel. OPENING SLIDE This includes the Greenwich Time Signal (GTS), which I included for artistic effect (it does not immediately precede the Shipping Forecast). The GTS, popularly known as "the pips", is a series of six short tones broadcast at one-second intervals by many BBC Radio stations. They mark the precise start of each hour (at the start of the final 0.5 second tone). Their utility in time calibration is diminishing since digital broadcasting (eg DAB) entails time lags owing to network latency.

Uno Bryfors, Senior Vice President of ABB Ports, presents his view on how and why the container handling industry is changing. In the first part of his interview on the London Eye, Bryfors explains what the future will hold after the major container shipping developments of 2017. Bryfors is one of the most experienced professionals in the ports industry today. During his career of more than three decades at ABB he has been driving the development of automation solutions for cargo handling. Watch another PTI video interview with Bryfors, filmed in 2014, where he accurately made forecasts on why the number of ship calls at ports would fall: http://bit.ly/2I4IsOk Video transcript: “2017 was the year of change in container shipping. What is now the impact on the container handling industry? I believe the main factors are mega-sizing, consolidation, and terminal volumes. It is important to keep an eye on the industry. We are now in the mega-age. We are talking about mega-container lines, -alliances, -ships, -ports, -terminals and cranes. The main mega driver is containerships. They are now getting very big relative to most trades. The alliances have been handling this so far, but the shippers require decent frequencies, so we are coming to the limit. By gradual optimization of ship designs, more TEUs have been squeezed into more or less the same overall dimensions. But if exceeding the new triple 24 by 24 base, the 24 wide and 12 plus 12 high, we will see that big investments are required in the whole transport system. While the shipping line consolidation has come very far by now, but not reached the limit, terminal consolidation has not really taken off. Terminal consolidation will take time as it is more on regional and local level. This will be seen as a shake out of terminals which are less productive, having higher cost per container and less capacity. The question is this is going to be handled by the terminal operators or be driven by the shipping lines and shippers. Digitalization ties container logistics much tighter now to the global logistics environment. It’s really not so special anymore. In worldwide logistics, consolidation is driven by big shippers like retailers, ecommerce and big manufacturers. In one-and-a-half years, we can see container volumes increasing and the automated terminals are growing and taking market share. Terminals will be forced to be on their toes accepting a lower number of calls by bigger ships and requiring higher peak capacity and still with less money per move. This is felt especially just now as we’ve seen more deliveries of large ships than ever before and this means cascading of 13-16,000 TEU ships into several new trades. The result will be less terminals but bigger and much more automated. Terminal operators are more cautious today, are more focusing on investing in existing terminals, optimizing them instead of investing in greenfield projects. We are at the age of expansion and re-equipment. Most of the terminals in operation today will be in operation 20 years from now. Terminals are expanded by adding more land, by taking out non-core activities and also by merging with their neighbours. Bigger calls means that yard capacity and especially density must increase and this is achieved by replacing RTGs and straddle carriers by automatic stacking cranes, so re-equipping terminals is not just by bigger ship to shore cranes, but also much bigger and automated and intermodal yard cranes.” Get more PTI: Official Site: http://bit.ly/PortTechOfficial Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBPortTech Twitter: http://bit.ly/PortTechTwitter LinkedIn: http://bit.ly/PortTechLinkedIn Published four times a year, Port Technology is the only technical journal reviewing and previewing advanced technologies for ports and terminals across the globe.

Asher Quinn (Asha) plays 'Islands,' a piano piece from his album "Sketches of Innocence," and sets further filmed footages to the BBC Shipping Forecast later in the video! Track download/CD available here ~ http://asherquinn.co.uk/sketchesofinnocence.htm 'Islands' is a lightly orchestrated piano piece from my instrumental compilation album "Sketches of Innocence." We filmed for it in Orkney and Caithness in January, braving the elements and the elemental beings in this most northerly outpost of Britain! The harbour scenes are from Scrabster, near Thurso; and St. Margaret's Hope and Stromness on Orkney. The islands include Stroma and Orkney itself, and the standing stones are at the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney. These giant stones are concretised protecting Gods, who come to life on new year's eve to bring renewal to the islands. If we're not awake, the protecting Gods in us can fossilise, and not be able to come to life and bring renewal. Keeping the Gods alive in us is done through mindfulness, gratitude, ritual and animation of soul. If we're alive with good intent and honour, then the Gods can find a host in our being, and come to dwell! In certain shamanic cultures, if the children are sick, the first thing the good doctor does (the Shaman) is to encourage them to dance, and to re-animate! Then the spirits who left, return. Hence the term dis-spirited, meaning depressed. These islands, plus all the ancient landscapes of Hibernia and Iberia (down to north western Spain), and Newfoundland, formed the outer circle of Atlantis, a continent now submerged beneath the northern Atlantic. It was in the time of Atlantis that the human being came out of the sea and onto dry land, and began to form a consciousness capable of expressing and integrating the Divine through humanity. This spirituality was cultivated by the Druid mystery schools, who knew of the Christ consciousness long before the advent of Jesus of Nazareth. The Christ consciousness (from the Greek 'Christos', meaning anointed) was none other than personal awareness of, and communion with, the Divine, beyond the group soul or tribal law. All through my life as a Brit in these islands, I've been aware of the BBC Shipping Forecast, from when I was a child! This piece of music, along with filming the sea and scenery of Orkney and Caithness, allowed me to honour the Shipping Forecast by setting it to film here. The BBC has broadcast a nightly shipping forecast for over 50 years at precisely 00.48 hours, on Radio 4. It’s a national institution, loved by many Brits both at home and abroad… an essential part of the bedtime ritual for many! Designed to help safeguard sailors, wayfarers and fisherman in our often stormy waters, each region from Shetland down to Biscay receives a detailed synopsis of the prevailing weather conditions. There’s something deeply lyrical, poetic and magical about the forecast, as if it invokes the guardian spirits of the sea… it’s almost a lullaby or a mantra in effect, constellating a sense of protection and well-being in the safe harbour of a cosy bed, whilst our valiant maritime warriors do battle with the coiled sea-serpents of the waves, who spit sleet and create a monstrous ocean foment with their thrashing tails. My thanks to Maggie who edits my films, and invited us up to Thurso where she lives, and to Phil Thornton who played lead guitar on the studio track.
