In 'Shiaght Laa' we're looking at the tourists en masse: at the target of the Manx Government to attract more in time to come, and on songs that were heard as entertainment for them in the old days. Phil Gawne is looking at words of a song and at the first two months of the year, as well as at an old wise saying connected with the Old Style Feast Day of the Water Well (or Epiphany, by the old style calendar), and that's all in 'Goll as Gaccan'. We find out about the way Jonathan Harker prepares to go to Castle Dracula in 'Claare ny Gael'.
