BBC Alba on Virgin

The BBC's Scottish Gaelic channel, BBC Alba, will be available on the Virgin digital cable platform as of tomorrow (Wed), though there's no word as yet on an appearance on Freeview.

BBC Alba is one of the few areas on TV where you will still find history programmes not obsessed with presenters or cheesy docu-drama formats, just good stories well told. But in Gaelic! The programmes are always subtitled though, and you will find some absolute gems - there was a good one on explorer Martin Martin just a few nights ago, for example.

There's a story on it in Gaelic on BBC Scotland's Naidheachdan page at www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/alba/naidheachdan/story/2011/05/110517_bbcalba.shtml
