: ' Aitealan O'n lar'

During the coming spring and summer months there will be broadcast under the above heading a regular Gaclic transmission. It may be a talk, announcements of interest to Gaelic-speaking Scots, a story, a short play, or songs, but the actual nature of the broadcast will not be revealed until the announcement. This twenty minutes on Tuesday nights will therefore be in the nature of a Gaelic surprise item.

: The Trial of Thomas Muir

Before the High Court of Justiciary at Edinburgh, August, 1793
The account of the trial has been freely adapted from existing records by W. CUMMING TAIT
The play has a prologue and epilogue with the main scene in the High Court of Justiciary, Edinburgh
Characters in order of their speaking
Production by GORDON GILDARD
Thomas Muir , younger, of Huntershill, was tried on August 30, 1793, for ' wickedly and feloniously exciting by means of seditious speeches and harangues a spirit of disloyalty and disaffection to the King and the established Government', and so on, and was found guilty of the crime libelled. The Lord Justice Clerk and Lords Commissioners of the Justiciary adjudged Thomas Muir to be ' transported beyond seas to such place as His Majesty with the advice of his Privy Council shall declare and appoint and that for the space of fourteen years'.
In preparing this trial for the microphone, Mr. Cumming Tait has made fairly free use of the existing records and suggests that there was more behind the evidence of Anne Fisher than was apparent at the time of the trial. Anne, who was a maidservant to Thomas Muir and was in love with him, appears both in the prologue and the epilogue. When her love was not reciprocated she decided on vengeance. Mr. Tait suggests that this was the reason why she was so vindictive in her evidence.

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.
