In 'Shiaght Laa' we hear a tune associated with a tradition of 17 January, by the modern-day calendar. It's a version of Mylecharane. W H Gill used a version of that tune for a Manx national song, with words in Manx by J J Kneen. Official recognition was given to Gill's work as the National Anthem on 22 January 2003. And in 'Claare ny Gael' we hear another extract of the story, Dracula, by Bram Stoker.
