Le Sunnd a’ Seoladh

 

BBC (1 x 45)

le_sunnd2.jpgThis documentary, filmed in Scotland and New Zealand, tells the story of the many islanders who worked in the post-war Merchant Navy. For many of them, New Zealand became the favoured destination and it was common for three quarters of the deck crew on these voyages to be Gaelic speaking Scottish islanders.

The personal stories of these former seafarers are supplemented by unique access to hitherto unseen archive.
