We have come almost to the end of the recording made by Jack Gell of the Manx paraphrase of Paradise Lost - there is only one extract remaining after this piece that was to be heard in 'Traa dy Liooar'. After one or two bits from 'Shiaght Laa', we are asked nine questions again as James Harrison is Quizmaster in 'Jamys Jeheiney'. We hear a little song done to demonstrate the phoneme / l / in 'Goll as Gaccan', and Phil Gawne tells us the words, as well as gives us another lesson. Our short story in 'Claare ny Gael' is about a man who won the Lottery - but how was it that he got those numbers?
