'SUIBHAL NAN SALM - The Gospel Truth'
An investigation of Professor Willie Ruff's claims that gospel music and the tradition of "lining out", is actually rooted in the Gaelic music traditions of the Scottish slave-owners rather than in African culture. Ten Gaelic psalm singers from the Isle of Lewis go to a church in Alabama to sing before a traditional gospel congregation.
