Fiona McArdle presents this programme, and it it we hear about the Rev John Quine again from the author of a new book about him, Julie Quine. Then we hear about a story from the Island's history that was such a great love of John Quine, and we find out from Allison Fox of Manx National Heritage about a troublesome time for the Kings of Man and the Isles, and the way a battle that wasn't too important per se in Largs between the Norwegians and the Scots, constituted the beginning of the end for King Magnus and his kingdom.
