  • 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...

  • BBC Radio 4 Shipping forecast 0048 hrs 3/10/12 - being received at sea Part 1

    Ever wondered how the shipping forecast was being received out at sea ? Well, here it is onboard a ship anchored in a sheltered anchorage off the Isle of Wight,UK . On the ships bridge ,the officer of the watch tunes into BBC Radio 4 and the distinctive sound of "Sailing By" lets him know he's on time and on the right frequency. Then he has to note down the details of the weather forecast for the sea areas in which the ship might expect to journey though within the next 24 -48 hrs, in this case THAMES, DOVER, WIGHT ,PORTLAND . This information will be used by the ships Captain in deciding when to heave up the anchor and continue on passage after sheltering from the weather.This film is a tribute to all professional seafarers who continue to record the BBC Shipping Forecast in this way, 24/...
