In Attention All Shipping, Charlie Connelly looks at the Shipping Forecast, which, regularly broadcast on BBC radio, is for many a familiar and reassuring element of the British cultural landscape. Its content could spell the difference between life and death for seafarers, but arguably less so for audiences in the garden shed or suburban living room. Here the author wittily sheds some light on the places behind the names, and their historical and odd cultural associations. The weather gets a mention here and there too.
