Compelling stories in the documentary series.
Documentary in which Jon Hearach MacDonald journeys through Scotland discovering the secrets of its carved stones, monuments that hold the key to the country's history. These stones are accessible to the public and although in plain sight, the information some of them represent has been all but forgotten. From the Pictish stones of the north east of Scotland, to the carved footprint on the inauguration stone at Dalriada, the site where the ancient kings of Scotland were crowned. There are the forgotten stones that reportedly mark the grave of a mermaid, and the cairn built to the exact height of the Bernera Giant. Jon also explores the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie - an event in Scottish history which has merited a number of memorials peppered throughout the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Documentary examining the importance of peat and how it has been intrinsically linked to life for many in rural Scottish communities. Artist, broadcaster and crofter Calum Angus MacKay was born and brought up in Lewis, where he still lives today, and sets out to find out more about peat's unique relationship with people, as well as to create a new piece of work that truly reflects what it means to him. In the past, cutting peat was something that was done out of necessity and was a crucial part of family and community life. Nowadays the need for it has lessened, but it is still very much part of the social fabric of rural life, and has a special place for many. The programme explores that relationship through the experience of those who have been involved with peat over the years, and find out about how it differs from island to island, and indeed from community to community.
Documentary telling the story of Aviemore, a unique mountain town located in the Scottish Highlands. Its story is told through anecdotes and the tales of those who live and work there, as well as nostalgia-tinged archive.
Documentary examining the organisation and planning behind the Royal National Mod. After three and a half years in the planning, endless meetings and no fewer than 25 fundraisers, the Royal National Mod took place in Stornoway in October 2016. But with an estimated 8000 attending, how does an event of this scale all come together? This programme takes a look behind the scenes and meets some of those who help organise the event, as well as following the journeys of some of those competing.
