Manx Radio's weekly programme looking at Manx life from a different angle, exploring the historical, social, linguistic and academic issues. This week we visit the official opening of an exhibition by Mannin Quilters of pieces inspired by the Island's UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man status. We're in Castletown Civic Centre, where the Vice-Chairman of Castletown Commissioners, David Parnell, welcomes guests and introduces the Chief Minister, Howard Quayle. We then hear from Chair of Mannin Quilters, Chris Eastham, and also from Mannin Quilters' resident performance poet, Di Benson. Music is supplied by young harp player, Lucy Gilmore.
