: AUL' EEL

A programme of Old Yule
Customs held sixty years ago in Boddam on January 5
Bran Loaves
Aul' Eel Mornin'
The Sailin' o' the Shippies
Ran Dan
Devised by Kathleen M. MacLeod
Advisers, S. Cordiner and M. J. Stephens
Produced by Howard M. Lockhart
This programme, devised by the author of the popular ' Fisher Wedding ', will tell of the Yule-tide customs of an Aberdeenshire fishing village. The bran loaves were baked on New Year's Day, to be eaten at Aul' Eel, January 5, when the people in the village visited one another. On this day, too, an effigy was stuck on the house of the skipper who had landed the smallest catch on the previous day, and great were the efforts made to avoid this ignominy. ' The sailin' o' the shippies ' was a race for models, and ' Ran Dan ' was the celebration held in the village hall. Not so long ago, 'in fact, Aul' Eel was the chief festival in many country districts in Scotland.
In this programme Alan Melville will bring to the microphone several of the Boddam people who took part in the ' Fisher Wedding

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.
