Ed Jones Eskimo Republic Political Song Book (59* d) RE: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book 10 Dec 10


I agree with Ewan McVicar and Jim MacLean that the programme's title was misleading. There was a bit of lip service paid to the 'Eskimos' but the piece on a young precocious Dunoon girl's marriage to an American sailor and plenty of American pop music left me wondering why the title was chosen. If the producer/reporter had read Ewan's book, which I doubt, they were just sticking two fingers up at the anti-polaris movement. Speaking to the American ex sailor and Gordon MacCulloch was meant to mirror the meetings of German and British soldiers after the war. This was more like Popeye meets Donald MacDuck.
