Callanish for Scotch-heads
Feb 26, 2001, 20:44
Just had a phonecall from Margaret Curtis to let me know that there's a one hour prog on Callanish on BBC2 this thursday at 6.25pm. It's in Gaelic (hopefully with subtitles)- so I reckon it's only being shown north of the border. She doesn't know the content, but they did a lot of filmimg with her & Ron - I happened to be there during part of it, when the filmmakers set fire to a bundle of hay behind the stones "for atmosphere".
Should be a good watch anyhow...

Hey, any chance you can video it and give us a loan ?????.
Sadly in the midlands we have The new Adventures Of Superman on Thorsday (Hmmmm, are they cosmically connected???).

Program was actually pretty good - lots of excellent images, quite a nice bit from Margaret & Ron and assorted locals. What surprised me was the attitude of the locals to something that breathtaking "they're just stones". Well, no they're not! But I suppose if you'ver been brought up in a religion that's contemptuous of the Mother and had any free thinking knocked out of you by the Wee Frees then it may be understood.
Drood - mail me your new address & I'll send the tape down to you on loan.
