Last of three programmes celebrating the traditional folk music of the British Isles. During the 80s, artists such as the Pogues and Billy Bragg injected new energy into the ailing British folk movement. The 90s saw the rise of Eliza Carthy and other children of the folk revival. Finally, the recent emergence of the so-called twisted folk generation has made folk trendy again. Featured artists include Dick Gaughan, Shane MacGowan, The Levellers, Beth Orton, Vashti Bunyan and James Yorkston.
