SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2009

SAT 19:00 The Great Ossian Hoax: McCall Smith Investigates (b0074sp5)
Crime writer Alexander McCall Smith investigates one of the greatest literary frauds in history. When James Macpherson uncovered heroic Scottish poems dating back more than a thousand years, they caused a sensation. But they sparked a 20-year war with the literary giant Dr Johnson, and left Macpherson with a reputation as a calculating swindler. McCall Smith travels through the Highlands to uncover the true story of the poems of Ossian, and how they changed the course of European art forever.


SAT 19:30 Mrs Brown (b0078lkb)
Dramatisation of one of history's most unusual love stories. Queen Victoria is grieving over her husband's death and finds herself unable to carry out public duties. John Brown is summoned from Balmoral to walk the Queen's pony in the hope that she will start to become herself again. The confident Highlander displays a distinct lack of respect for court protocol and quickly becomes the Queen's most trusted companion.


SAT 21:10 Balmoral (b00mqg2c)
Documentary telling the story of Balmoral, the royal family's most private residence. For over 150 years this Scottish castle has been home to royal traditions of picnics, stag hunting and kilts. From prime ministers to Princess Diana, life at this tartan-bound holiday home has not appealed to everyone.

But there is another story of Balmoral, of how the royal family has played a role in shaping modern Scotland and how Scotland has shaped the royal family. Queen Victoria's adoption of Highland symbols, from tartan to bagpipes, helped create a new image for Scotland. Her values, too, helped strengthen the union between Scotland and England. Ever since, Balmoral has been a place that reflects the very essence of the royal family.

Boswell and Johnson's Tour of the Western Isles

In this doctored version of events, an insubordinate manservant accompanies the acerbic Johnson and his pompous companion as they wend their way through breathtaking Hebridean landscapes.


SAT 23:10 Samuel Johnson: The Dictionary Man (b0074snf)
Drama-documentary telling the story of Samuel Johnson's creation of the first English dictionary, in an attic room just off Fleet Street in Georgian London. The depressive writer-for-hire with Tourette's syndrome did for the English language what Newton had done for the stars, classifying words, fixing their meaning and bringing order to the chaos of language. It took him nine years, but in the process an anonymous writer became a literary superstar.

SUN 20:00 Tweed (b00mvb0l)
Harassed Tweed

Harris Tweed is gasping for breath.

Yorkshire textile baron Brian Haggas still owns the biggest mill on the islands, but he is not making any more tweed before he has sold the thousands of jackets he still has. With sales not going as well as expected he has had to lay off all the freelance weavers. Now, as the islanders finish celebrating Christmas, he flies in for another dramatic act to completely close down the mill and lay off the workforce.

At this very low point in the Harris Tweed story, a new chief executive of the Harris Tweed Authority begins work. She is charged with getting the cloth out of the doldrums and back onto the world stage.

So do the new owners of the remaining two tiny mills - the only places on earth left making Harris Tweed. Alan Bain, co-owner of the smallest operation, Carloway Mill, is making overtures to an Italian car manufacturer - will the Europeans swoon at the prospect of Harris Tweed car seat covers?

At the Shawbost Mill they are backing the young Scottish designer Deryck Walker to produce groundbreaking tweed in Mediterranean hues.

Meanwhile, a posse of London tweed fanciers comes to the islands in search of Harris Tweed to see if it is still available or gone forever. They find a fabled source of ancient cloth, the Turin Shrouds of Harris Tweed

The fight-back has begun.


SUN 21:00 Munro: Mountain Man (b00mwgyq)
Little more than 100 years ago, Scottish mountains standing at more than 3,000 feet were virtually unknown. Today they are familiar terrain to many thousands of climbers, thanks to Victorian adventurer Hugh Munro's determination to list the high peaks which now define the highlands and islands of Scotland.

This documentary tells the story of the magnificent peaks that bear his name and the people who have been possessed by them.

The birth of this obsession - now known as Munrobagging - is a twisting tale of intrigue, which presenter Nicholas Crane unravels high on the ridges and pinnacles of some of Scotland's most spectacular mountains.

MON 19:30 Cambridge Folk Festival (b00mwhxn)
2009

Oumou Sangare

Oumou Sangare, the 'Songbird of Wassoulou', and her vibrant band of musicians and dancers delight the Cambridge Festival audience with their bold, seductive and funky take on traditional Malian music, resulting in a spectacular stage performance.

Mali's great Wassoulou diva is a talent to be reckoned with. Sangare's songs have always caused a stir - her chosen rhythm is the resonating jittery sound of the kamalengoni (the hunter's harp) - and her songs focus on subjects not publicly expressed in Malian culture. Outspoken and fearless, her lyrics highlight the issues that women in Mali face, as she constantly strives to better the position of women at home and throughout the world.

An icon and role model for modern African women, Sangare is both keen to encourage and embrace new ideas through her music whilst at the same time holding a deep respect for tradition and those who came before her. The result is a musical and visual spectacle which has brought her worldwide recognition and success.


MON 20:00 Mr and Mrs Mackintosh (b007hwzt)
Charles Rennie Mackintosh is one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, but the contribution of his wife and artistic partner has often been overlooked.

This film sets out to redress the balance by exploring their enduring relationship. Shot on location in Scotland, France and Austria, the story is told through a re-examination of the Mackintosh legacy and the extent of Margaret's influence on his work, from the Glasgow School of Art to the Hill House and Scotland Street School.

With contributions from John Bellany, Benedetta Tagliabue and Jonathan Meades.


MON 21:00 The Glencoe Massacre (b007hx8n)
Documentary telling the story of the Glencoe massacre. In the early hours of 13th February 1692, 38 men, women and children of the clan MacDonald were slaughtered in their homes. Despite popular belief, this was not a typical clash between two highland clans but a planned attempt at eliminating a community by government soldiers.

The Glencoe massacre is one of the most famous and emotive legends in Scottish history, yet one of the most over-simplified and misunderstood.


MON 22:00 What Darwin Didn't Know (b00h6sbt)
Documentary which tells the story of evolution theory since Darwin postulated it in 1859 in 'On the Origin of Species'.

The theory of evolution by natural selection is now scientific orthodoxy, but when it was unveiled it caused a storm of controversy, from fellow scientists as well as religious people. They criticised it for being short on evidence and long on assertion and Darwin, being the honest scientist that he was, agreed with them. He knew that his theory was riddled with 'difficulties', but he entrusted future generations to complete his work and prove the essential truth of his vision, which is what scientists have been doing for the past 150 years.

Evolutionary biologist Professor Armand Marie Leroi charts the scientific endeavour that brought about the triumphant renaissance of Darwin's theory. He argues that, with the new science of evolutionary developmental biology (evo devo), it may be possible to take that theory to a new level - to do more than explain what has evolved in the past, and start to predict what might evolve in the future.


MON 23:30 The Dark Heart of Italy (b0074rdl)
Italy has been likened by writers to 'falling in love with a prostitute'. British journalist and writer Tobias Jones takes this as his starting point in his adopted home city of Parma. In celebrating the uniqueness and vitality of Italy, he also reveals its darker heart - highlighting the frustrations and characteristics of the country that both infuriate and charm.

Alongside this, and as a further illustration of Italy's darker heart, Jones tells the story that has rocked Parma in recent times Parmalat - the dairy company and owner of Parma football club, which turned out to house the biggest corporate fraud in history.


MON 00:00 The Best of Youth (b00b3ypm)

TUE 21:00 Tweed (b00mwl6l)
Hanging by a Thread

The Harris Tweed industry is recovering slowly.

Textile tycoon Brian Haggas left the island and is still trying to sell tens of thousands of jackets. The two small mills have stepped into the breach to make all the Harris Tweed and are unexpectedly working flat out - it seems there is a real market for Harris Tweed after all.

The small mills want to market their tweed, but how? Shawbost Mill send their star designer Deryck Walker to Japan to consult with a marketing guru. Is his new clothing - traditional yet edgily modern - on the right track? At the smaller Carloway Mill, Scottish-American owner Alan Bain wants to tinker with the very DNA of the tweed, softening it and even considering adding cashmere. But is he committing tweed heresy?

The Harris Tweed Authority will try to stop him. They are charged with defending the cloth and the famous orb trademark from all corners, and chief executive Lorna McCaulay is deluged with examples of counterfeit tweed, and even a pop group who want to name themselves after the stuff.

The film ends with the stark conclusion that, despite the success of the small mills, unless Haggas reopens his mill and undertakes to make large amounts of tweed, Harris Tweed will never get back to where it was. Will he change and adapt his firm views to help Harris Tweed succeed?

THU 19:30 A Poet's Guide to Britain (b00k99tf)
William Wordsworth

Poet and author Owen Sheers presents a series in which he explores six great works of poetry set in the British landscape. Each poem explores a sense of place and identity across Britain and opens the doors to captivating stories about the places and the lives of the poets themselves. This episode features Composed upon Westminster Bridge by William Wordsworth.

In 1802, Wordsworth, the great Romantic poet of nature and the man famous for writing about the Lake District, daffodils and clouds, penned a short but electrifying poem about the stinking, filthy, heaving city of London. In fact, the poem was a captivating, sublime portrait of the city at dawn which still has the power to catch one's breath.

Sheers investigates what Wordsworth was doing when he wrote the poem on a summer morning in 1802, and uncovers a story that involves three different women. Wordsworth lived in Grasmere in the Lake District, sharing a small cottage in an unusual domestic arrangement with his sister Dorothy. In the spring of that year he decided to marry an old schoolfriend, Mary Hutchinson. However, in order to do so he first needed to clear the air with his French ex-girlfriend and mother of his daughter Caroline, a nine-year-old girl he had yet to meet.

In July 1802, William and Dorothy set out from Grasmere to Calais via London on the intriguing journey that would lead them across the bridge. Sheers follows their journey, discovers how the poem came into existence and examines exactly what Wordsworth wrote. He talks to Wordsworth fans including that epitome of Northern cool, poet Simon Armitage, the writer-in-residence at the Wordsworth Trust, Adam O'Riordan, and some of the commuters who cross Westminster Bridge every morning on their way to work.


THU 20:00 The Three Lives of William Wallace (b0074sh5)
Documentary which looks at the various images and portrayals of Scottish icon William Wallace over the last 700 years, from the 15th Century poem by Blind Harry to Mel Gibson's role in Braveheart.


THU 21:00 Watching the Dead (b00mwr1v)
Documentary which explores television's fascination with forensics, revisiting classic shows like Quincy and Marius Goring's The Expert and looking at the appeal of contemporary dramas such as Silent Witness, Waking the Dead and CSI.

The film examines how scientific advances like genetic fingerprinting have been reflected in the crime drama, finds out how pathology got so sexy, how accurate the science shown on screen actually is, and how TV cops solved crimes before DNA.

Contributors include Sue Johnston from Waking the Dead, Tom Ward and William Gaminara from Silent Witness, and old Quincy himself, Jack Klugman. Plus comment from crime writers, scientists and detectives.


THU 22:00 In Love with Barbara (b00f7zg2)
Drama inspired by the life of arguably the most prolific author of the 20th century, Dame Barbara Cartland, which looks beyond the pink facade to tell the story of what made her the resilient and renowned Queen of Romance.

Despite her devotion to true love, her own life was blighted by heartbreak, with her first marriage ending in a scandalous society divorce. In the aftermath of this humiliation, she successfully campaigned to have her beloved brother Ronald elected to parliament, but he was killed at Dunkirk before he could fulfil his promise.

In the 1970s, at the height of her commercial powers, Cartland formed an unlikely friendship with Lord Louis Mountbatten and they collaborated on a romantic novel.


THU 23:30 Robert Burns: The People's Poet (b00h6s23)

Martha Wainwright, Mairead ni Mhaonaigh, Karen Matheson, James Taylor and Donal Lunny are among the featured stars.


FRI 21:00 Classic Albums (b00mwr5r)
The Doors: The Doors

The Doors' eponymous debut album alone assures them a place in rock and roll history. Together with the voice and lyrics of Jim Morrison this mix of blues, rock and jazz has made it one of the greatest debuts ever. In less than a year after its release, the Doors would go from Los Angeles favourites to one of the biggest bands in the world.

With the use of interviews, musical demonstration, rare archive footage and live performances, the documentary tells the story behind the conception and recording of the album and the creation of their distinctive trademark sound, and charts the transition of Jim Morrison from reticent vocalist to one of the most electrifying and sexually-charged performers in rock music.

Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore, the surviving members of the Doors, share memories of the band's early days and the making of the album, and throw light on to living with the lyrical genius Jim Morrison.

Other contributors include manager Bill Siddons, beat poet Michael McClure, record company guru Jac Holzman, musicians Henry Rollins and Perry Farrell and Los Angeles DJ Jim Ladd, who add insight to the Doors as musicians, composers and leaders of a generation.

Bruce Botnick, the engineer on every Doors album, examines the original multi-track tapes and gives a guide through the recording process of such classic songs as Break on Through, Light My Fire, End of the Night, Alabama Song, The Crystal Ship, Back Door Man, Soul Kitchen and The End.


FRI 21:50 The Doors: No One Here Gets Out Alive (b00mwr5t)

FRI 22:30 Hogmanay on TV: The Glory Years (b0074t7c)
A look back at how Hogmanay has been celebrated on television over the years. From the early 50s until the early 80s Scottish Hogmanay shows were a fixture of the festive schedule. A mixture of woozy sentimentality, big-hearted bonhomie and traditional toe-tapping music these extravaganzas still persist in the popular imagination as much for their failures as for their triumphs. Live TV and alcohol-soaked party-going don't always mix, after all.

Bringing together the best clips from ratings-winners of yesteryear and from the reinvented street-party shows of more recent times, the programme raises a brimming glass to a TV phenomenon.
