46. Shetland with Christine De Luca

Broadcast 21st September 2010

We welcome our very first studio guest to Voice On Record, the Shetland poet Christine De Luca. Christine reads some poems from North End Of Eden in English and in the Shetland dialect, and talks to me about a record I found in Orkney, a copy of which she hasn't seen since she was a child growing up in Shetland.

Also, to stick with a broadly Scottish theme, we begin our four part serialisation of Shakespeare's Macbeth.
