So too the Shipping Forecast, a four times daily weather report broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on behalf of the Met Office for the seas around the British Isles.
It was first broadcast 150 years ago, and the names of the 31 sea areas may be reassuringly familiar – but do you know where they are? This reference chart is the perfect gift for Radio 4 buffs, or if you want to put a ‘face to the name’ – and find out where South Utsire, Dogger and German Bight really are!
The chart is printed on extremely thick, luxury, 960gsm/1440mic board. This is like the thick card on the back of sketch books so this Shipping Forecast map will prop on a shelf, look great in a frame, or can be punched with a hole to hang up. It’s a single sheet of card, with the chart on one side.
The perfect match for our Inshore Waters Map.
The dimensions are 148.5mm wide by 420mm tall. This is the same height as a sheet of A3 card but only half the width.
