Attention all shipping a journey round the shipping forecast by Charlie Connelly( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
The shipping forecast on BBC radio is as familiar as the sound of Big Ben. Sitting at home listening to it can be a cosily reassuring experience. There's no danger of a westerly gale eight, veering southwesterly increasing nine later (visibility poor) gusting through your average suburban living room. Yet familiar though the sea areas are by name, few people give much thought to where they are or what they contain. In Attention All Shipping, Charlie Connelly wittily explores the places behind the voice, those mysterious regions whose names seem often to bear no relation to conventional geography. Armchair travel will never be the same again
