Produced and directed by Kirsteen Cameron, the story is described on the website:
... set in 1939, a couple are bemused by their son's gift of a wireless set, but when he leaves the small island community for service in the Navy, they and their neighbours keep a close ear upon the news it brings of the war's progress.

There is something very satisfying about having a story read to you and it must be many years since George Mackay Brown's stories have been broadcast. So it is to Kirsteen Cameron's credit that she has decided to bring these three stories to life on the airwaves.
At the heart of Orkney's literary community, George Mackay Brown lives on in the work of the George Mackay Brown Fellowship which was set up to promote writing in Orkney and bring new authors to the attention of the Orkney reading public.
