    Thei is the BBC home service, here is the shipping forecast.

    Rockall, Shannon and Shetland will be effected by a deep trough over..................

    I recall as a young lad listening to such, having no idea where or what they were talking of.

    Do the BBC still offer such advice now?

    Who can remember the music played leading up to the broadcast. A wee trip down memory lane. Give it time the video will play after the Adverts.
