  • 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...

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...

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.

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 the broadcasts.
