Seth Lakeman Talks About Greenwich Folk for BBC Radio 4 Documentary

Seth Lakeman

Devon Folk hero, and Mercury Prize nominee Seth Lakeman dropped by to April Media Productions.

Remotely directed via phone link, Seth was recording a voiceover piece for a Folk Music documentary produced by Bob Geldolf’s media Production company, titled ‘The Folklorist’ which is set for airing on BBC Radio 4 in the very near future.

Co-incidentally, studio owner John Carter and Seth were both raised in the Devon village of Buckland Monachorum, and schooled together in Tavistock, so 25 years on were long overdue a brief catch up!

Voicing Concerns To Fix Social Issues

Sarah, one of "The Fixers" records a voiceover for a promotional video

Fixers is a movement of young people tackling issues they feel strongly about to make a difference to others.

‘Fixers’ are young people who want to change things for the better. Many have been through difficult times, and have used that experience to campaign on issues that matter to them, like being homeless, domestic abuse, or drink and drug misuse. As part of their campaigns, and working with professional producers, they are creating some fantastic films, songs, music videos and other resources. Several have won awards.

To date, more than 8,400 Fixers from all over the United Kingdom have started (and are continuing) over 1030 unique projects. More than 201,000 hours of Fixer effort has been contributed across the UK, with Fixes addressing issues ranging from drink, drugs, homelessness, and mental health, through to unemployment, bullying, and much more.

Thanks to a recent grant from the Big Lottery Fund, Fixers is expanding over the next three years throughout the UK – including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – recruiting up to 20,000 new Fixers to tackle issues affecting everyone today, often based on ideas from their own experiences.

With help from ITV, over 375 Fixers projects have been showcased on regional news programmes across the country, providing more than 25 hours of peak-time exposure to their projects.

Sarah, Tarin, Mike and Katie popped by to April Media Productions studios to record and film a voiceover which raised concerns about how those coming out of rehab are not receiving the support they need at this most critical time.
