Off Radar (BBC)
Sociopolitical Documentary hosted by Angela NicAoidh, published by BBC broadcasted as part of BBC Trusadh series in 2016 – Gaelic (Scottish) narration
On an isolated headland in the Outer Hebrides an unconventional community is on a mission to purchase an abandoned Cold War radar Base.
From a quiet crofting outpost to a Cold War listening post monitoring sky and sea, to one one of Britain’s most ususal modern day communities, or some might say – including themselves – ‘Curiousities’! Amongst the 30 or so pioneers who have come from far and wide in pursuit of new a different kind of life are Jill, a RADA trained actress, who now works as an artist and writer, and Martin and Elaine who gave up professional jobs to start a cliff-top gardening business.
We followed the newly formed Gallan Head Community Trust on Lewis – one of Britain’s most unusual modern day communities – over 6 months as they attempted to come up with a plan for the headland and the abandoned buildings and negotiate a sale.
