Fruit On Branches

Can I recommend a wee programme I watched last night on BBC Alba -


Angus Peter Campbell, the award-winning poet, novelist, journalist, broadcaster
and actor discusses his life and his work, in a frank and open interview with
Father Colin MacInnes for BBC ALBA.

Starting with Angus Peter's roots in South Uist, he charts his early success as
a journalist at Grampian TV, through turbulent years battling alcohol addiction,
to his acclaimed success as a novelist, actor and poet.

The programme features dramatised re-enactments of Angus Peter's novel, Tilleadh
Dhachaigh, which tells the story of a WW1 ghost returning home from the Somme.
The ghost, representing the Gaelic language, is given the kiss of life.

With performances from Mary Ann Kennedy, Michael Marra, Cathy MacDonald and AL
Kennedy, this celebration of modern Gaelic writing is a treat not to be missed"

The programme is being repeated on Monday 25 October 2010 at 10.30pm. You can watch it
live on the BBC iplayer.
