A shorter way to 'Tipperary'

The BIB published news on Monday of last Sunday's special instalment of BBC TV's 'Antiques Roadshow', in which old-time singer and clawhammer-banjo player Alec Somerville (left), appeared with the Roadshow's Paul Atterbury to talk about the historic 5-string banjo which he has donated to the Canadian War Museum.

At that time, we could only refer those who wanted to see this part of the show to the full version on BBC's iPlayer - which is not available for viewers outside the UK. Thanks to the weekly FOAOTMAD news blog for reporting that Colm Daly has put a video of Alec's section of the show on to YouTube. It can also be seen on the FOAOTMAD blog.
