Fad coir is ceud bliadhna tha am faclair Dwelly air a bhi na thaic do Ghàidheil agus iadsan le uidh anns a chanan. Ach cha b' ann ri sùil ris a' lethid de dh' fhoillseachadh a chaidh Eideard Dwelly an sàs anns na h-obrach. Tha am prògram sa a' rannsachadh an duine agus a dhìleab.

Dwelly's Gaelic Dictionary is one of the most important works of Scottish scholarship, and an indispensable reference guide for a century of Gaels since its first publication in 1901. This programme examines the amazing achievement of Edward Dwelly, who originally undertook the compilation for his own private use.
