BBC Radio 3 Sunday Feature

18 November 2016

Dr Peter Mackay presented a Sunday Feature on BBC Radio 3 on 13 November.

This 22-minute feature based on his new anthology, An Leabhar Liath / The Light-Blue Book, explores euphemism, innuendo and eroticism in Scottish Gaelic songs; how these songs were expurgated and censored during the 19th century; and how – if you know how to read it – the Scottish landscape can be seen in a more suggestive and bawdy light.

The programme was originally broadcast on Sunday 13 November at 1845, and is available on the BBC iPlayer.
