Programme was this - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gbgx0. It's probably about half in Gaelic, but is subtitled, so I'll try and post here if it gets shown again. It doesn't appear to have aired since 2009 though. It was a nice alternative to all the other programmes simply romanticising the place I thought. I think I got some Ballboy in that one too.humblebee wrote: Sorry! I managed to miss that somehow. Yeah, I saw about the Puff Inn earlier too - it looks like the MoD weren't too happy when they found out that civvies had been using it:
What was the programme you edited?Some bloke in khaki with a handlebar moustache wrote:The ‘Puff Inn’ is a canteen facility for use by QinetiQ and MOD staff and their contractors, and NTS sponsored staff only. It is not open to members of the public. The name ‘Puff Inn’ is a colloquial term for this facility which has been used, misleadingly, for a number of years. It never was, or will be, a licensed public house or ‘Inn’.
Do you know if the MoD are still there? It looks like they were talking about taking the personnel away and just operating the radar remotely from the mainland or something.
The MOD are still there as far as I know. It would be nice to get rid of them in most ways, and especially to get rid of their incredibly ugly buildings, but they do provide the infrastructure that allows everything else to operate.
