John Nicolson 's Gaelic lessons last winter were welcomed by a large audience, not only in Scotland but as far afield as Paris. In response to many requests he begins tonight a new series. The books used in these lessons will be the same as those used last year - MacLaren's ' Gaelic Self-taught' and Blackie's ' First Gaelic Reader '-both to be had from Messrs. MacLaren and Sons, 268, Argyle Street, Glasgow, C.2.

Two of the tales of that household word in Scotland-Para Handy-will be read in this programme by R.B. Wharrie. Listeners will hear of Dougie the mate, of Sunny Jim the second mate (and crew), of Macphail the engineer, of Hurricane Jeck, and of 'The Vital Spark' herself-that paragon of 'puffers'.
The stories show Neil Munro's understanding of the sailors of these small gallant boats and of their trade, and his love of the coasts they served.
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.
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.
