with The MacDonald Sisters
The Island of Lewis, largest of the Outer Hebrides, lives by its tweed industry - an industry which has evolved a vast cycle of Gaelic work songs.
This documentary is based on these songs and attempts to give an impression of an island that is still steeped in its Gaelic tradition.

£10,000 for the winner
Gary Player, South Africa v. Jack Nicklaus, U.S.A. at Muirfield
The play-off for supremacy following The Big Three in Japan, in which Arnold Palmer was eliminated and Player and Nicklaus finished all square after fifty-four holes. Player won his first British Open at Muirfield. So did Nicklaus. Now these two great rivals, vividly contrasting in build and technique, who have both won the Open on each side of the Atlantic, return to these Scottish links for this special match. A total of £16,000 is at stake.
