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...

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...
