BBC Four is running a three part documentary on the challenges facing Harris’s Tweed industry. Here’s how they describe episode one:

1/3 Trouble Looms:

The islanders take steps to protect their heritage - a beautiful, sustainable and ethnic British cloth, as much part of island culture as the Gaelic language - but are they too late?

Can this be the same BBC whose staff professed to being baffled at the BNP’s claim that alongside those things which are ‘British’ in a legal sense, are also things British in an ethnic sense? It be. Shame on ’em.
