The Call of the Isles

If you belong to a generation that recalls the BBC's Tonight Programme, which ran from 1957 until 1965, and television personalities such as Cliff Michelmore (1919 - 2016), Alan Wicker (1921 - 2013)  and Fyfe Robertson (1902 - 87), a recent showing on BBC Alba, available on BBC iPlayer, may be of interest. It's The Call of the Isles presented by Fyfe Robertson (above) and made in 1963. The voice will resonate; the images impress and the now archaic technologies intrigue.
