Hey, amazing that someone has created a song of the shipping forecast. Nostalgia, warm, safe, and a lovely song 🤗

excellent song. Heard this live a few years ago on BBC6 - that version was a bit faster and a bit less 'esoteric' but still hauntingly different.

I wrote to Lisa on Twitter praising the song and was honoured to get a personal reply! :-)

Simon Cooper

Beautiful! An ode to a constant love of mine - Radio4.
And best of all, no radios were harmed in the making of this video (I hope she threw it back in?)

Lisa - Thank you for making this track, it's joyous!

If you like this, go to the BBC Radio 4 website, and listen to the programme just aired today, Thursday 23rd April, at 11.30am, called Shipping Songs, which was presented by Lisa. It should be up on the website for the next month.

@terry platt I listened today and have posted to all friends on FB. This incantation mesmerised and soothed me as a child and still enchants me today. Though I always wonder why 'Dogger, Fisher, German Bight" are the ones which stick in the memory so strongly.

Update, Friday 15th May: this programme is being repeated on Radio 4 on Sunday 17th May at 1330 - so it'll be reposted on the iPlayer for a further month.

Simply one of THE most amazing tracks from a phenomenal album. More precious than gold, these emotional landscapes.

I thought this was a song about shipping...


Seen Lisa's concert last night in Ludlow, blown away with the whole performance. She's just brilliant!
