i was watching the documentary on the scottish rock band runrig entitled 'there must be a place'on sky arts and they showed some rare footage on the band performing on BBC scotland's gaelic light entertainment show 'se ur beatha' & on grampian TV's children's programme 'cuir car'.looking at the footage of them performing on both series i was wondering if there's any more footage or any editions of these series exist.i also remembered seeing calum kennedy and his daughter fiona performing on se ur betha in a documentary on calum's career on BBC scotland in 2006.can anyone check the database on which editions of both gaelic series in existance.i think there isnt a lot of 'cuir car'still around in the STV archives as a number of STV & grampian material are not complete like 'garnock way'(4 episodes now exist) & 'shammy dab'(4 editions exist).
I can't find a listing for Se Ur Beatha, though obviously the programme with Runrig's appearance still exists. As to Cuir Car it appears unfortunately that there's only one extant edition. Grampian apparently distributed Cuir Car to schools on domestic video formats so there's a possibility there are more out there, but none have come to light as far as I know.
There seems to be very little footage of the band from their earlier years. I was hoping there would be some surprises in 'There Must Be A Place', but it was just the same old clips we're familiar with. Good documentary nonetheless.
