Look, Stranger!

MUSTY MAN ALIVERY with a doff of a whimsy-sized hat to ABOUT BRITAIN. Regional slant on craft activities, its content forever escalated out of all propotion by a tantalisingly existing computerised map of the country in the opening titles.

    BBC Alba are repeating this on Monday nights at the moment, the Scottish episodes from the 1970s at any rate, introduced by a man who looks like a very awkward Tintin who tells us what the places featured are like now (usually the population has dwindled). The films themselves bring new meaning to the word austere, lots of fishing and sheep farming and one TV between them.

    Also Bernard Sumner did the music for an episode I saw. Probably not THAT Bernard Sumner. No instructions for looking stranger, sadly.
