BBC's Shipping Forecast

Jump to last reply

In Janisj's current entertaining TR, there is discussion of The Shipping Forecast:
http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/first-trip-we-lost-a-car-this-trip-we-lose-a-lady-.cfm
" - Maybe we should organize a Fodors shipping forecast secrecy society-" she said.

I was intrigued, as all I knew I learned from Mrs. Bale as well.
Here's a Wikipedia link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shipping_forecast

Found it fascinating, especially how many listeners seem to use it as a sleep-enhancer.

I'm mentioning this as some may have missed the TR comments.
Thanks to all who educated me.
