: The Clans: Tuesday's Documentary

The Truth Behind the Tartan
The Clan Chiefs of Scotland were not only doughty fighters - as adept with the sgian dubh on a winter's night as the claymore in battle - they were also men of no small conceit.
The Macneils had a chief druid who mounted the battlements, sounded a horn and proclaimed: 'The great Macneil of Barra has finished his dinner. The Princes of the Earth may dine now.'
Macdonald chiefs regarded where-ever they sat as head of the table - much to their hosts' annoyance. And the gathering song of Clan Cameron started in a suitably murderous way - Sons of the hound come here and get flesh!
Whether you live in Surbiton or Scrabster, there is a sporting chance that you have a Granny called MacLeod or Macpherson or Mac-'Something'. Do you care? An American tycoon came to Scotland - to find to his delight that he was a long-lost Clan Chieftain. Another Clan Chieftain is a West Indian living in Jamaica. So what price the Clan system in Scotland today? Is it a sentimental memory of Jacobite days - or a tartan tinted tourist trap? Magnus Magnusson meets the people who keep the Clan idea alive.
Written and produced by MAGNUS MAGNUSSON.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
