Trump’s Mother headlines BBC ALBA autumn schedule

BBC ALBA Autumn Launch

A fascinating documentary about President Trump’s Scottish mother is one of several programmes screening this Autumn which demonstrate BBC ALBA’s confident transition into its second decade.

The documentary, Màthair a’ Chinn-suidhe: Trump’s Mother, uncovers the story of Mary Anne MacLeod Trump’s early life, and her emigration from the Hebridean island of Lewis to the ‘land of the free’.

The feature-length documentary includes unprecedented access to correspondence with her childhood pen-pal Agnes Stiven, which reveals the adversity overcome by Gaelic-speaking Mary Anne MacLeod Trump.

The popularity of Gaelic medium education in urban Scotland is seeing a new generation of Gaelic speaking millennials which the mini-series Na Millenni-Gaels has captured.

Across four programmes the channel follows seven next generation Gaels over six months, experiencing life-changing rites of passage like parenthood, learning to drive and even dabbling in a little pole-dancing.

Strong and engaging factual programmes are a hallmark of BBC ALBA’s schedule. The award winning Trusadh series resumes with an exploration the challenges of living in rural and small-town Scotland for the LGBTQ+ community.

BBC ALBA continues to highlight inspirational sporting life stories with an emotionally charged programme on the life of Elena Baltacha, the British No1 tennis star who died from liver cancer in 2014 aged just 30.

The documentary will feature contributions from Elena’s mentor, Judy Murray as well as family and friends.

BBC ALBA’s trail-blazing coverage of Scottish women’s sport will deliver regular coverage of domestic and international women’s football fixtures charting the progress of Scotland’s teams in the Champion’s League and Euro Championship qualifiers.

An impressive array of new Gaelic talent has contributed, on screen and in the production of, the rich mix of BBC ALBA’s autumn programmes.

Actor Màiri MacLennan stars in headline shows Trump’s Mother, and in the eagerly anticipated new series of Bannan, alongside Lana Pheutan, who also appears in the Royal Television Society of Scotland award-winning comedy sketch show FUNC.

The hit comedy FUNC has become must-see TV for the BBC ALBA audience, and with its rambunctious young cast and flourishing writing team, fans can expect the new series to be a runaway success on TV and social media.

Margaret Mary Murray, BBC ALBA's Head of Service, said: “It is really inspiring to see this next generation of talent in front and behind the camera, creating fabulous content for BBC ALBA. I hope audiences will enjoy the thrilling drama, the landmark documentaries and the continuing brilliance of FUNC, all of which will be on offer this autumn on ALBA.

BBC ALBA’s new autumn programmes start from Monday 16 September and Màthair a’ Chinn-suidhe: Trump’s Mother will broadcast at 9pm on Tuesday 17 September.

Clàr foghair BBC ALBA

Tha prògram aithriseach mu mhàthair Albannach a’ Chinn-suidhe Trump am measg nam prògraman a’ dearbhadh neart clàr BBC ALBA, is an t-seanail a’ dol a-steach dhan dàrna deichead bliadhna.

Tha am prògram, Màthair a’ Chinn-suidhe: Trump’s Mother, ag innse sgeul beatha Mhàiri Anna NicLeòid Trump, a h-òige agus a h-eilthireachd à Eilean Leòdhais gu na Stàitean Aonaichte.

Tha am prògram a’ toirt dhuinn criomagan sònraichte à litrichean eadar i fhèin is a caraid Agnes Stiven. Bha an dithis nighean a’ sgrìobhadh gu chèile nan òige agus bha Màiri Anna ag innse mun àmhghar a thachair rithe.

Le àireamhan de sgoilearan ann am foghlam tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig a’ sìor fhàs ann am bailtean mòra na h-Alba tha ginealach de ‘millennials’ Gàidhlig a-nis air a’ Ghalltachd.

Thar cheithir phrògraman, tha sreath Na Millenni-Gaels a’ leantainn seachdnar dhiubh sin thairis air sia mìosan, a’ faicinn amannan cudromach nam beatha, bho a bhith ri ‘pole-dancing’ gu ionnsachadh draibheadh, agus a bhith nad phàrant airson a’ chiad uair.

Tha prògraman aithriseach làidir a ghlacas d’ aire an còmhnaidh aig teas-mheadhan clàr BBC ALBA. Tha an t-sreath leantainneach Trusadh a’ dèiligeadh le na dùbhlain beatha aig luchd LGDTC+ ann an cuid de choimhearsnachdan na dùthcha.

Tha an t-seanail cuideachd a’ taisbeanadh sgeulachdan brosnachail bho shaoghal spòrs, le aithris shònraichte air a’ chluicheadair-teanais soirbheachail Elena Baltacha, a bhàsaich le aillse ann an 2014 nuair nach robh i ach 30 bliadhna a dh’aois.

Cluinnidh sinn sa phrògram bho a caraidean, a càirdean, agus cuideachd bho Judy Mhoireach, a bha na meantor dhith tro a beatha.

Mar dhachaigh spòrs nam ban ann an Alba, tha BBC ALBA a’ craoladh ball-coise nam ban aig an taigh an Alba ach cuideachd gu h-eadar nàiseanta le bhith a’ leantainn nan sgiobaidhean Albannach ann an Champions League nam Ban agus sgioba Alba tro chuairt ro-fharpaiseach na Euros.

Chithear farsaingeachd de dhaoine ùra a’ nochdadh air an sgrìon as t-Fhoghar air an taiceachadh le sàr chruthachdas far an sgrìon a tha le chèile a’ toirt fìor bheartas gu clàr ùr BBC ALBA.

Tha an cleasaiche òg Màiri NicIllinnein a’ nochdadh ann an criomagan dràma Màthair a’ Chinn-suidhe agus san t-sreath ùr de Bannan còmhla ri Lana Pheutan, a tha cuideachd ri faicinn ann am FUNC, a bhuannaich an Comadaidh as Fheàrr aig duaisean RTS Alba na bu thràithe air a’ bhliadhna.

Bidh FUNC na tharraing do shluagh às dèidh leantainneachd a thogail tron a’ chiad sreath agus le cleasaichean òga, sgairteil agus sgrìobhadairean ealanta, bidh an luchd-amhairc toilichte gum bi a cheart-uiread de sceadsaichean èibhinn rim faicinn san dàrna sreath, air telebhisean agus air nam meadhanan sòisealta.

Thuirt Ceannard Seirbheis BBC ALBA, Mairead Màiri Mhoireach: “Tha e na bhrosnachadh mhòr gu bheil ginealach ùr de thàlant againn a’ cruthachadh prògraman airson BBC ALBA. Chithear iad a’ nochdadh air beulaibh camara anns gach gnè phrògram agus tha iad cuideachd a’ cur ri cruthachas riochdachaidh is grinneas teicniceach ar meadhanan craolaidh. Tha mi an dòchas gun còrd ar dràma, is na prògraman-aithriseach agus an sàr-chomadaidh FUNC gu mòr ribh cuide ris am pailteas de neamhnaidean eile a bhios rim faicinn ann an clàr foghair BBC ALBA.”
