Highland Heartbeat


Recommended Posts

That's the "first episode" (although, to me, it appears to be some sort of highlights program...) of the Highland Heartbeat program thingy featuring Jillian Isbister.

 

It's clearly produced for the American market. I couldn't work out though if the concert scenes were filmed in the UK, or actually filmed in America.

 

I'm not sure exactly what is Scottish about "Bridge Over Troubled Water" though, any ideas?

There is a sort of a Scottish connection though. In 1969, when writing Bridge over Troubled Water (and many of the other songs on the album of the same name) Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel were staying in a cottage near Oban.

 

Of course, the bridge the girls walk across in the video is at Eilan Donan Castle in Dornie in Wester Ross.

Scotland I think, this article confirms it was filmed in Scotland for the American market and provides some interesting background. It is also quite interesting to Google the program name and see all the American station IDs link to it. :wink:

The songs weren't exclusively Scottish; there was 'contemporary' and 'popular' songs too

 

 

Here's a couple of links:
