In this talk Mr. Polson will describe some of the ways in which Highland magicians could make themselves invisible. He will tell the story of Black Bodach, who could carry off a millstone on his shoulders and disappear in the mist.
Holiday-makers in Caithness who climb Morven may find the millstone on the hillside. Should they tell their story to another, however, and volunteer to point out where the stone lies, they will learn the oft repeated experience that those who have seen the stone once and heard the legend can never see it again. It has not been seen for over forty years. Mr. Poison has collected a great mass of interesting folk lore during his travels on the mainland and in the islands, and has written a number of papers and books on the subject.
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.
