James MacMillan travels to St Kilda to play the traditional music that was so nearly lost forever. It's an extraordinary story. Trevor Morrison was the last person alive who knew the traditional music of the tiny Scottish Island of St Kilda, the inhabitants of which were forced to evacuate the island in 1930, leaving it uninhabited. Morrison recorded the music at a care home in 2006, music that otherwise would have been lost forever. He had been taught the pieces by his piano teacher, who was originally from St Kilda. His teacher would place Trevor's hands over his own as he played in order to teach him the music. Now those haunting recordings by Morrison, who died in 2012, have been released alongside orchestral arrangements of the music by composers including James MacMillan (who also conducts on the album), Craig Armstrong, Rebecca Dale, Francis Macdonald and Christopher Duncan. In the video below, James MacMillan travels – with a piano! – to St Kilda to play this precious music. Details

A key film in the career of director Michael Powell, The Edge of the World was his first original idea to be realized onscreen, and its success attracted the attention of producer Alexander Korda. Korda's bankrolling of Powell's next several films catapulted the filmmaker into the first rank of British directors. Powell was attracted to the idea of building a dramatic story around the evacuation of St. Kilda, an island north of Scotland, whose aging population could not sustain life there. Forbidden from filming on St. Kilda, Powell and his crew journeyed farther north to Foula, an island whose sheer cliffs play an important role in the story. Two young men, Robbie Manson (Eric Berry) and James Gray (Niall MacGinnis), disagree on their island's economic future. James loves Robbie's twin sister Ruth (Belle Chrystal). The rivalry between the two men and their strong-willed fathers threatens to tear apart the island community, but an unexpected pregnancy and a rescue in dangerous seas serve to unite the islanders in common purpose. Powell took full advantage of the magnificent locations to tell this simple but affecting story of survival and adaptation to changing times. Details

When the skipper of a tourist yacht (Niall MacGinnis), lands reluctantly on the remote shores of Hirta - the now-deserted Hebridean island of his birth - he is overwhelmed by memories from a time before its evacuation. A powerful story of love, rivalry and survival against the harsh elemental realities of island life and an ever-encroaching modernity, The Edge of the World is the first independent production by legendary British director Michael Powell.

Coast continues to uncover the secrets of our shores, through untold tales of explorers from as far apart as Cornwall and Australia; it reveals little-known gems, including a coastal walk that takes in the history of Britain; investigates the clandestine sex trade that scandalised Victorian Britain and decimated the Royal Navy; discovers how Greenwich became the global centre of sea navigation and reveals what becomes of our coast in winter. Coast also crosses the Atlantic to find out why Nova Scotia, in Canada, appealed to its Scottish settlers, and it ventures to the French channel coast to unearth its connection with the birth of Britain's Ordnance Survey maps.
