Highland Airports on TV

There's a surprisingly well-done series called Puirt-adhair/Highland Airports on BBC Alba at 20.30 on Wednesdays. It covers activities at several Scottish airports and a gliding club and, best of all, has no presenter in vision, so no irritating emphasis on prepositions and pointless waving about of hands to distract the viewer. Obviously aimed at a lay audience, but doesn't treat us as imbeciles and pepper the programme with 'comic' interludes. Worth a watch, I thought.

Most episodes of Series 2 still, or about to be, available on iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b095vx57

An excellent series filmed in English, narrated in Gaelic and then subtitled in English again. Good use of my license fee BBC! Still a good series though.
