Sàr-Sgeòil - Classic Tales

BBC ALBA Diardaoin 20 Sultain 8.30 - 9.00f

Cathy Sunset Song

Four of Scotland’s most cherished novels - Kidnapped, The Silver Darlings, Sunset Song and The Thirty-Nine Steps - have their roots firmly entrenched in the Scottish landscape.

How successfully, then, did the authors of these books manage to portray this remarkable landscape and culture that was a source of inspiration for the heroes and heroines within this fiction?

In a new BBC ALBA series, Cathy MacDonald explores four areas of Scotland but instead of taking a guide book, she travels with a classic novel.

In the first programme, Cathy explores Kincardineshire, or the Mearns, visiting some of the locations featured in the book that’s been voted ‘Scotland’s favourite novel’ - Sunset Song. This agricultural landscape - the heartland of the Doric language - formed the backdrop to Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s famous novel and it was here that his central character, Chris Guthrie, developed from an innocent young girl to a wife and mother who experienced love, loss and tragedy.

Ann an sreath ùr air BBC ALBA, tha Cathy NicDhòmhnaill a’ rannsachadh ceithir àiteachean ann an Alba ach an àite leabhar-iùil, tha i a' cleachdadh an nobhail ainmeil.

Anns a' chiad phrògram dhen t-sreath, th...a Cathy a' rannsachadh Kincardineshire, no am Mearns, a' tadhal air cuid dhe na h-àiteachan a nochd san leabhar a chaidh a thaghadh mar 'an nobhail as fheàrr le Alba' - Sunset Song. Bha an nobhail ainmeil aig Lewis Grassic Gibbon air a shuidheachadh anns an tìr seo - far a bheil an talamh cho torrach agus an cànan Doric cho làidir. B' ann an seo a dh'fhàs prìomh charactair an nobhail, Chris Guthrie, bho nighean òg neo-chionntach gu bean agus màthair a dh' fhairich agus a dh'fhuiling gaol, call, agus bròn.
