A note to mainstream and independent television producers in Northern Ireland - here is an example of how a programme on the value, positivity and power of a minority language can be made that provides access to all and a sensible use of celebrity to broaden the audience.  Congrats to BBC Scotland.

Scottish-made programmes like this should really be broadcast in Northern Ireland under the Ulster-Scots umbrella (and vice-versa).

Reconciliation sites like this are always obsessed with north-south cooperation, but very rarely do we see demands for Ulster-Scotland cooperation. Is it not time that parties like Alliance opened up to this more? I think better uses of resources could be made through more cooperation between the Ulster Scots and Scots language bodies and the Irish Gaelic and Scottish Gaelic language bodies too.
