Maralyn Crellin introduces a programme in which we meet Yn Greinneyder, the newly-appointed Manx Language Development Officer to Culture Vannin, Ruth Keggin Gell.

Culture Vannin began its Bree sessions in 2006 to inspire young musicians, singers and dancers. This year's Big Bree Weekend will be coming up at the end of this month, but this week was an important deadline. Manx Music Development Officer, Yn Greinneyder Kiaullee, Chloe Woolley, tells us about that.

With the importance of the Island as the birthplace of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, we hear about a stirring and gallant rescue on 6th October 1889 - when Charlie Cain and the Peel lifeboat crew saved all aboard a Norwegian ship, the St George - you can still the figurehead in Peel Lifeboat Station today.
