'Homecoming' for St Kilda evacuee


It is almost 80 years since St Kilda was abandoned, and the last islanders left their home 40 miles out into the Atlantic. In "An t-Hiortach" or "The St Kildan", a documentary to be shown on BBC Alba at 2200 BST on Saturday 29 August, the last evacuee still able to tell his story has been back one final time.
