Le Populaire du Centre (Creuse) - - Creuse -

There are cer­tain­ly things which are so part of our culture that we for­get that to others they may seem a lit­tle strange. For ins­tance, this year is the 150th an­ni­ver­sa­ry of the ship­ping fo­re­cast. If you lis­ten to the BBC on the ra­dio then this fo­re­cast is part of your life. The Ship­ping Fo­re­cast re­ports and fo­re­casts the wea­ther in the seas around the coasts of the Bri­tish Isles – so im­por­tant for an is­land – these war­nings can save lives. There are four broad­casts per day at 0048, 0520, 1201, and 1754.
