The Eighth Programme presents The Haunted Age

Playing tracks by

Vernon Elliott, David Cain and Ronald Duncan, Mike Sammes, John Baker, Belbury Poly and more.

There are blogs, websites, albums, record labels and even other Mixcloud playlists dedicated to that dusty, faded, unsettling, 16mm vibe that accompanied childhood in the 70s and 80s. Mournful folk music and musique concrete where you'd expect jolly tunes to be. Clipped RP tones that made warm invitations and dire warnings sound more or less the same. Videotape that rendered things too harsh and bright and film that rendered things too grainy and dark. This is my attempt to recapture that time and place. I hope you like it.

Here are the sources for the spoken bits that aren't listed in the timeline: The Spirit Of Dark And Lonely Water (Central Office Of Information/Illustra Films 1973), The Magic Fountain (Yorkshire Television 1973), Sit Up & Listen (Thames Television 1982), Never Go With Strangers (Central Office Of Information/Balfour Films 1971).

Ooh, the Picture Box theme! Magic!


A lovely mix. Very much my thing.


Poignantly and darkly brilliant - thankyou


A splendid jaunt through the kissing gates and whispering woods of nostalgia!


Wonderful mix. A brilliant start to a very lazy Saturday. Cheers.

I just lifted it off this YouTube clip but it's also available on this DVD


where did you get the Cleveland Way sample? I would love to have this to use in a mix I am working on for a Radio show - could you point me in the right direction to track it down?
