: Runes of the Hebrides: The Change-House

by John Brandane.
A Play of the Hebrides.
Performed by the Cymro Gaelic Players.
Scene: The Change-House at Croggan. Eilean Aros. late on a September night in 1752; a large, mean. dimly-lit room-half kitchen. half drinking-chamber. Donnacha MacLean; the old innkeeper, is making some pretence of clearing the table. Alasdair, his gillie, is really working hard at the same task. yet at times he goes to the moonlit window and peers out at the driving clouds. Eventually, as the moon breaks through, he sees the gibbet prepared for Callum MacLean, a tacksman arrested for shooting a "red-coat".
Iain MacLean, Master of the Brig Margaret, and cousin to Callum, enters the scene and becomes the hero of the story. Soon after his entry. two travel-stained and weary girls. Flora MacLeod and her cousin, Seonaid MacLeod, seek a lodging within the Change-House. Flora is the sister of the soldier who has been shot and comes expecting to find him merely ill or wounded. The plot is complicated by her love for Iain and by the antagonism between the clans MacLean and MacLeod.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
