There are nine questions for us in 'Jamys Jeheiney' again, and James Harrison tests our store of knowledge and our memory again. We hear a rhyme or little song in 'Goll as Gaccan', and Aalin Clague sings and Phil Gawne tells us the words of it. And in 'Claare ny Gael' we have a story in the form of a myth, but written recently in English by Neel Rana about Shorys, the Invincible King, and translated into Manx for the programme.
