BBC Alba An La Script

Unread postby Dun Eideann » Thu Jun 23, 2016 4:30 pm

Feasgar math,

I often listen to BBC Alba, and especially An La.

I am wondering if anyone would be so kind as to help transcribe the following?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rcOrg6k630&t=0m50s

In the first part, I understand 'priomh naidheachdan An La'.
In the second part, I can only get 'Breatannach' and 'fichead bliadhna'.
In the third part, unfortunately only 'Alba'!
In the next part, I think I can hear 'Ruisia' and 'Breatainn', but they seem to be talking about fish?!
And in the last part, I can get 'sgoil Gaidhlig', 'Dun Eadeann'
Then after the titles, 'Feasgar math', 'Breatainn' and 'Eaconomaidh'.

Unfortunately, I am still very much a beginner so am unable to write in Gaidhlig coherently!
Thank you for any help!

You can find videos with transcripts of some programs on learngaelic.net

Transcribing a whole program is a lot of work - trying to identify which words you can is actually already a good exercise in itself :)

Just wondering if anyone can help with the very first phrase which they always say at the start of the programme?
I would expect something like:

"Tha seo na prìomh naidheachdan an là."
(Here are the headlines of the day.)

But what they say is a little bit different and I can't work it out at all!

I think it's:

Tha ochd ùirean, seo dhuibh prìomh naidheachdan an là.
It's 8 o' clock, these are today's top stories.
(lit. these for you are the top news items of the day)

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that would make sense. I had to listen to another example to get that though, I couldn't make it out in that video above.

NB: "prìomh naidheachdan an là" is a noun phrase so you'd only use one definite article (before the final noun)

Thanks!
That definitely seems to make sense as they now seem to say seachd (seven) instead of ochd (eight) :D
