The Rt. Hon. Jeremy
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
It sounds almost like a letter home from a little boy at prep school. It is, in fact, the often-rewarded cry of a pair of wildly successful American millionaires. In fifteen years Kemmons Wilson and his business partner Wallace Johnson have built the biggest hotel chain in the world - accumulating personal fortunes of Â£30 million each in the process. Both devout church-goers, they have clung to the simplicity of their cotton state beginnings. To direct their hundred companies from Memphis, Tennessee, they work seven days a week, fly everywhere by private jet - and open a new hotel every two days. They also combine business and God with a fervour unique to the American Bible Belt.
A series of programmes presenting music in the folk idiom from many parts of the world.
This week, from Scotland: Matt McGinn in a film presentation of some of the songs created by this popular Scots writer and singer,
accompanied by Tom Harvey (guitar) and Billy Connolly (banjo and autoharp).
