James Harrison poses us nine questions in 'Jamys Jeheiney', in the programme which is a BBC/Manx Radio co-production. In 'Goll as Gaccan', Phil Gawne tells us the words of a rhyme connected with an old custom close to the start of this month, and of another rhyme connected with the Christmas time and with the New Year - perhaps some of those words will be useful for writing a message in Christmas cards. We have the opportunity to hear a short story that was written originally by Matsuo Basho, but called Yn Chenn Voir (The Old Mother) in a translation into the Manx Gaelic in 'Claare ny Gael'.
