A fast-paced, upbeat travel entertainment series on all things Scottish: scenery, celebrities, Celtic music, castles & battles, crafts & customs, food & drink, 21st century Scotland, and, lest we forget - golf. Fiona Kennedy, one of Scotland's best-loved singers and broadcasters, hosts the programs from outdoor locations across the land, sharing her love of her country and taking viewers on a joyful journey of discovery.
This series was produced by an Aberdeen company for the North American market, primarily PBS.
Royal Highland Show #304 [TV-G]
First aired: April 27, 2006
Manager David Dunsmuir shares the history of the Royal Highland Show, held in Ingliston near Edinburgh. Fiona and Fergus take a look at ponies, cattle, and sheep shearing; Robert finds out what makes prize-winning bees buzz; Fergus presents a tribute to the sheepdog; and Fiona meets Syrup, the bald eagle.
Note: There is some clicking in the audio this week. Since it happens at regular intervals I suspect that my local station needs to clean their tape heads. I've corrected it as best I can. It's only really noticable if you listen with headphones.
