New Astronomy Programme - Reul-Chuirt

Postby pbholmes » 22 Jul 2008, 21:39

There's a programme on STV called "Reul-Chuirt" which is about astronomy and archaeoastronomy. "Reul" means "star", and I don't know what "chuirt" means. ("Chart" sounds like a reasonable guess, but I can't find any confirmation of that.)

It's on Sunday nights at 6pm.

Some of it's in English, but it's mostly in Gaelic with English subtitles.

Reul Chuirt

Reul Chuirt - pronounced "rail choorch" with the first "ch" as if you were about to clear your throat and the second "ch" as in church.

Means " a wander around the stars", or, more likely, "star trek".

Highlands Astronomical Society featured in the 3rd programme holding a star party in my back garden.

Spotted this on the SPA forum, which backs up Eric's translation!
