For those that have "Catch up on demand" (or something similar) on their telly options, it's worth keeping an eye on BBC ALBA. From time to time they have some really good Celtic music on. There's a programme available at the moment called "Horo Gheallaidh".

Unless you're a Gaelic speaker you'll have to click on the programme information button to see the English translation of what's exactly in each programme.

I live in London and can receive BBC Alba on Ch 110, Freesat.

If you live in the UK, install "TV Catchup" (http://www.tvcatchup.com/), and you can watch BBC Alba, along with a whole range of channels on your PC, for free. And the program is free as well as the programmes.

(It seems to have gone down just now when I tried to open ity up to give a link - I hope that doesn't mean it's gone belly-up, it's a very handy facility.)

It's come back now - TV Catchup - a misleading name, because it's not actually a "catch up" site, the access is to whatever happens to be on at the time.

But you don't get the English subtitles for the Gaelic programmes when you see it this way.

You can also get it on BBC iPlayer, even if you don't have Freesat: it should, of course, be available on FreeVIEW, but isn't!!

Listening to it right now, as I always do while trying in vain to study math in this noisy house. Not understanding Gaelic is an advantage, because I can enjoy the music without being distracted by the words. I LOVE to hear Morag McDonald talk about "current events", the incongruous English words and her wonderful rich laughter.

Here's the link for the BBC iPlayer:

Radio Nan Gaidheal

I listen to the program "A Mire ri Moir" by clicking "Eist A-Rithist" and then selecting the program. They archive a week's worth of shows so I always listen to the oldest ones first.

Actually when I stumbled in here I was hoping somebody could tell me if any of these shows have been released for sale by the BBC . . . anybody know?

Thanks,
Eman

I've been enjoying watching this channel on my Sky box (in Ireland) ever since it started, it's the Scottish equivalent of TG4 (or TG4 is the Scottish equivalent of BBC Alba - but been going much longer).

S4C (Welsh-language channel) also has quite a bit of folk music at times, and is on Sky Digital and Freesat across the UK.

The BBC's scottish gallic radio service (Radio Nan Ghadheal - please excuse my dodgy spelling) is also available on those services and has a fair bit of both traditional and contemporary gallic music, apart from Sundays when it's not allowed!
