The expeditionary adventures of James Forbes Sutherland

Olrig Observations

James Forbes ('Forbie') Sutherland started his career as a farm labourer on the Castlehill Estate in the Parish of Olrig, but was quickly recognised as having 'above average intelligence'.  Thanks to the benevolence of his employer, James retrained as an Able Bodied Seaman and was subsequently recruited by James Cook to join the crew of the 'Endeavour' on its expeditionary journey to the south Pacific.  Forbie acquitted himself well, playing his part in the discovery and recording of many new lands. Conditions for the crew on board the Endeavour were however far from idyllic, and after having survived being almost frozen to death during a re-stocking landing at Tierra del Fuego Forbie developed TB, and eventually succumbed to the condition in April 1770, two weeks after Cook discovered the east coast of Australia.  Forbie was buried ashore and became the first British man to be buried on the shores of east Australia, at Botany Bay, where a memorial to him stands to this day.

Hörspiel Johnny Dollar - Folge 175: The James Forbes Matter

Yours truly, Johnny Dollar

The James Forbes Matter Über einen Zeitraum von über zwölf Jahren, von 1949 bis 1962 (mit einer einjährigen Unterbrechung in den Jahren 1954-1955), werden in dieser Serie die Fälle des „Mannes mit dem vollgepackten Spesenkonto, Amerikas sagenhaftem freiberuflichem Versicherungsermittler, Johnny Dollar“ nacherzählt. Johnny ist ein versierter „Stopfer“ seines Aufwandskontos. Der Name der Sendung entstammt der Tatsache, dass er jede Folge mit der Summierung seiner Rechnung abschließt und mit „Ende des Berichts… Yours truly (Mit freundlichen Grüßen), Johnny Dollar“ signiert. Obwohl in der Versicherungs-Hauptstadt Hartford in Conneticut ansässig, kommt der Freiberufler Johnny Dollar ziemlich weit herum – seine Abenteuer führen ihn quer über den Globus. Es gibt einige unübliche Geräte, die in der Sendung verwendet werden, die sie von anderen unterscheidet. Johnny ist ohne Partner, Assistent oder Sekretär. Die am ehesten wiederkehrende Rolle ist die des Pat McCracken vom Universal Adjustment Bureau, der Johnny viele seiner Fälle vermittelt. Ein weiterer atypischer Aspekt gab der Sendung zusätzliche Glaubwürdigkeit: Immer wieder erwähnen Figuren in der Sendung, dass sie von Johnny’s Fällen im Radio gehört hätten. Meist nutzt Johnny die Zeit während des Ausfüllens seiner Abrechnungen, um den Zuhörern Hintergrundinformationen zu geben oder seine Gedanken zum aktuellen Fall auszudrücken. „Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar“ war die letzte fortlaufende Detektivserie des goldenen Zeitalters des Radios. Mandel Kramer spielte Johnny Dollar zuletzt, und erlangte ähnliche Popularität wie Bob Bailey, als die letzte Episode „The Tip-Off Matter“ am 30. September 1962 gesendet wurde.

EP-284 Susanna and James Forbes, Little Pomona Cider

Good Beer Hunting

I’ve known one of today’s guests for a good few years. Susanna Forbes and I first met as drinks journalists at countless events around London. Back then, she was known as one of the hardest-working journalists out there, with plenty of awards and respect as evidence. So I had no idea that all along she had been planning to give up journalism for good. In this episode you’ll hear the full story of how she and husband James upped sticks and moved to Hereford in pursuit of their passion—cider making. Under the name of Little Pomona Cider, they’ve quickly established themselves as one of the best producers in the country, making beautifully balanced ciders, perries, and other exciting fruit ferments using only wild yeasts and juice. That’s led to investment that bought them a huge new site on the same land as hop grower Brook House, where they hope to grow organically but with ambition—as long as nature and opportunity allow. Along the way we look at the challenges of being a journalist-turned-producer, the battle that cider fights to be taken seriously and as independent from the beer scene, and the fact that cider really has a lot more in common with wine, and should be treated as such. We also go into the history of some of the culture, methods, and ingredients that make Hereford such a special cider region—a story that Susanna is very well equipped to tell, thanks to her former profession. This is Susanna and James Forbes of Little Pomona Cider. Listen in.

Yours Truly Johnny Dollar 1953-07-28 173 The James Forbes Matter

Yesteryear Old Time Radio

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was a radio drama about a "fabulous" freelance insurance investigator "with the action-packed expense account." The show aired on CBS Radio from January 14, 1949 to September 30, 1962. There were 811 episodes in the 12-year run, and more than 720 still exist today. Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive, calling on Johnny to investigate an unusual claim. Each story required Johnny to travel to some distant locale, usually within the United States but sometimes abroad, where he was almost always threatened with personal danger in the course of his investigations. Johnny's file on each case was usually referenced as a "matter," as in "The Silver Blue Matter" or "The Forbes Matter." Later episodes were more fanciful, with titles like "The Wayward Trout Matter" and "The Price of Fame Matter" (the latter featuring a rare guest-star appearance: Vincent Price). Each story was recounted in flashback, as Johnny listed each line item from his expense account. Most of the items related to transportation and lodging, but no incidental expense was too small for Johnny to itemize, as in "Item nine, 10 cents. Aspirin. I needed them." Johnny usually stuck to business, but would engage in romantic dalliances with women he encountered in his travels; later episodes gave Johnny a steady girlfriend, Betty Lewis. Johnny's precious recreational time was usually spent fishing, and it was not uncommon for Johnny's clients to exploit this favorite pastime in convincing him to take on a job. The episodes generally finished with Johnny tallying up his account, making final remarks on the report, and traveling back to Hartford, Connecticut, where he was based.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daniel-lantz/message
