PEAT & DIESEL DOCUMENTARY WINS INTERNATIONAL AWARD

BBC ALBA Autumn schedule

A BBC ALBA documentary about Hebridean folk-rock band Peat & Diesel has won a major award at a New York film festival.

Peat & Diesel: That’s The Way We Do It! received the prize for International Documentary Feature at the long-running Williamsburg International Film & Music Festival in Brooklyn, New York.

Produced by MacTV, the programme follows the Stornoway band as they gain momentum and fame ahead of the launch of their second album and a landmark gig at the legendary Glasgow venue, the Barrowland Ballroom.

Peat & Diesel, comprising of fisherman Calum ‘Boydie’ Macleod, electrician Innes Scott and delivery van driver Uilleam ‘Uilly’ Macleod, have taken the Scottish music scene by storm, capturing the country’s imagination through their infectious music and unique tales of island life.

The documentary was a huge success on BBC ALBA when it aired in early April, as part of an evening of Peat & Diesel music and antics which drew one of the biggest audiences of the year.

BBC ALBA Head of Service Margaret Mary Murray, who was also Executive Producer of the programme, said: “We had a feeling that this programme would be a hit with audiences and it certainly was. We received a huge amount of appreciative feedback from the audience when we screened the double bill of this fabulously entertaining roller coaster road movie charting the rise of Peat & Diesel plus coverage of their sell-out gig in Glasgow. It was a memorable night on BBC ALBA!

“We are delighted that the talent of the island-based musicians and filmmakers has been recognised on the international stage demonstrating that the local does have global appeal!”

The programme’s Producer/Director, the RTS Scotland award-winner Daibhidh Martin, said:

“Peat & Diesel are totally unique and it was great craic being on the road with them. They are captivating and it’s been brilliant to be there with them as they become more and more successful, watching the audiences react so positively to them.

“They celebrate Gaelic and island culture, mixing sincere and relatable subjects with comedic imagery and stylings. It was never difficult to film the band and capture something that audiences would respond to.”

BBC ALBA has seen significant international success in recent years, with both international co-productions and awards frequent fixtures, a testament to the quality and ingenuity of the BBC ALBA production sector.

clàr Foghair BBC ALBA

Tha prògram aithriseach mun chòmhlan chliùiteach folk-rock Peat & Diesel air duais mhòr a bhuannachadh aig fèis film ann an New York.

Choisinn Peat & Diesel: That’s the Way We Do It! an duais airson Prògram Aithriseach Eadar-Nàiseanta As Fheàrr aig Williamsburg International Film & Music Festival, ann am Brooklyn, New York.

Air a riochdachadh le MacTV, lean am prògram an còmhlan à Leòdhas fhad ’s a bha iad a’ dol bho neart gu neart is iad a’ sìor chosnadh cliù dhaibh fhèin air thoiseach air a bhith a’ cur air bhog an dàrna clàr aca, agus cuirm shònraichte ann an talla-chuirm cho ainmeil ’s a tha ann, am Barrowland Ballroom ann an Glaschu.

Sa chòmhlan Peat & Diesel, tha an t-iasgair Calum ‘Boydie’ MacLeòid, an neach-dealain Innes Scott agus an dràibhear-bhana-lìbhrigidh Uilleam ‘Uilly’ MacLeòid, a tha air saoghal ciùil Alba a ghabhail thairis, a’ glacadh aire is aigne na dùthcha len cuid ciùil tarraingeach agus sgeulachdan inntinneach mu bheatha sna h-eileanan.

Bha am prògram air leth soirbheachail air BBC ALBA nuair a chaidh a shealltainn tràth sa Ghiblean, mar pàirt de fheasgar sònraichte Peat & Diesel a’ sealltainn an cuid ceòl agus an sgeulachd beatha. Fhuair na prògraman na h-àireamhan a bu mhotha de luchd-amhairc aig an t-seanail am bliadhna.

Thuirt Mairead Màiri Mhoireach, Ceannard BBC ALBA, a bha na h-Àrd Riochdaire air a’ phrògram: “Bha beachd againn gun robh am prògram gu bhith soirbheachail le luchd-amhairc BBC ALBA agus gu deimhinne bha. Fhuair sinn tòrr theachdaireachdan bho dhaoine mu cho math ’s a chòrd an dà phrògram riutha, am prògram aithriseach agus cuideachd a’ chuirm iongantach ann an Glaschu. Abair oidhche a bh’ ann air BBC ALBA!

“Tha sinn air ar dòigh gu bheil tàlant an luchd-ciùil agus luchd cruthachaidh phrògraman sna h-eileanan air an aithneachadh mar seo air ùrlar eadar-nàiseanta, fìor theisteanas gu bheil ùidh fharsaing ann an sgeulachdan ionadail.”

Thuirt Stiùiriche/Riochdaire a’ phrògraim, a tha air duais RTS Scotland a chosnadh cheana, Daibhidh Màrtainn: “Chan eil buidheann eile ann coltach ri Peat & Diesel agus bha deagh chraic ann a bhith còmhla riutha air an turas. Tha daoine air am beò-ghlacadh le Peat & Diesel agus tha e sgoinneil a bhith ann rin taobh fhad ’s a tha iad a’ sìor fhàs nas soirbheachaile.

“Tha iad a’ cur an cèill cultar na Gàidhlig agus nan eileanan, a’ measgachadh cuspairean a tha dha-rìreabh a’ buntainn ri daoine le ìomhaigheachd èibhinn, aotram. Cha robh duilgheadas sam bith an còmhlan a chlàradh agus feuchainn ri rudeigin fhaighinn a chòrdadh ris an luchd-amhairc.”

Tha BBC ALBA air mòran soirbheachas eadar-nàiseanta fhaicinn anns na bliadhnaichean mu dheireadh, le co-riochdachaidhean agus duaisean eadar-nàiseanta ann am pailteas, rud a tha na theisteanas do chàileachd agus ealantachd roinn riochdachaidh BBC ALBA.
