Manx Radio's weekly programme looking at Manx life from a different angle, exploring the historical, social, linguistic and academic issues. Fiona McArdle has been instrumental in organizing the Island's involvement in the Pan Celtic Festival, held somewhere in the island of Ireland each year in Easter Week. The main competition is for a new song in the Celtic language of each of the six participating nations - Brittany, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. We hear this year's Arrane son Mannin to choose a song for that, plus some young singers from the Bunscoill Ghaelgagh and the Island's winning entry in Ireland in 2014, Shenn Scoill's 'Tayrn mee thie'.
