Seems strange that recently the New Zealand company, Infratil, rebranded the Ayrshire airport near Robert Burns Birthplace, as Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
Surely, The Robert Burns International Airport, Prestwick, would have made more chests fill with pride than that?
Scots rename a part of New Zealand as Mosgiel and New Zealanders rename a part of Ayrshire as Glasgow; wierd!!

Many years have past since working on this program, I'm so proud to have been a part of John's vision and the history of the Scots here in New Zealand.

The video is quite a large file and if your internet connection isn't that great it could be that you need to click pause and let it load (the blue bar moves along until it's all loaded) and then click play.

Alternatively there is a low resolution version that you can choose by selecting the Lo/Hi button just under the player - if you select the low one then it should play better for you.

Let us know if you still have problems!

The link to this was sent to me, as convener of the Auckland Gaelic Society, by Lisa Preston.
I'd love to be able to watch it but I think it's drunk & plays a second or two bit at a time & then stops.
I've even typed it into my WIE address bar, hoping that would help, but to no avail!
Is it you or is it me. I've not had a dram today yet.
