A roving reporter from the BBC was touring a remote part of the Scottish Highlands looking for material for a documentary about the way of life there.
Hello there, excuse me, I’m from the BBC and I’m gathering material for a documentary about the way of life in the remote parts of the Scottish Highlands. You look like an interesting fellow, perhaps I could interview you?
Well, perhaps you could start by telling me your name?
Well now there’s a story. Y’know I deliver the mail round here, but do they call me Donald the Postman? No they don’t.
You see those fine crofts up on the hill there, well, I built more than half of them myself, but do they call me Donald the Croftbuilder? No, they don’t.
And did you pass the nets down in the harbour? Well, I made several of them, but do they call me Donald the Netmaker? No, they don’t.
But, I tell you, a moment’s weakness with just ONE sheep….
