Geansaidh a Phàpa / The Pope’s Eriskay Jumper

Denise modelling her own Eriskay ganseyDenise: Really interesting programme on BBC Alba last night, all about the gansey tradition to the Isle of Eriskay – Eilean Eirisgeidh.  Filmed recently largely in Eriskay, it features many people from the island and South Uist. It’s a social documentary, local history, and cultural documentary all rolled into one.  In Uist Gaelic, with English subtitles. Watch on BBC iPlayer until 20 October. 1hr. Highly recommended.
