Major BBC Alba TV Six Part Series on – An Aghaidh an t-Srutha/Celtic Radicals

The successive episodes will cover the history of Celtic radicalism from a Scottish perspective and from the episode guide below seems pretty wide ranging in content.

Episode titles:

The struggle for civil/social rights of Gaelic communities.

Land struggles in Scotland and Ireland, and the Easter Rising.

Land stuggles and Highland history after the Battle of Culloden.

The Celtic influence on the birth of the Labour Party.

The Celts influence on the Spanish Civil War and the introduction of the NHS.
