Kenneth McKellar: Scotland's Great Tenor

Johnny Beattie leads this celebration of one of Scotland's finest singers, the tenor Kenneth McKellar, who died in April 2010. McKellar's career spanned 50 years and saw him become a household name in Scotland and beyond, but behind the public persona was a quiet man who regularly spurned personal honours and accolades and shied away from the trappings of show business. The programme features contributions from McKellar's friends and colleagues including Sir Jackie Stewart, the singers Eddi Reader and Jean Redpath and his daughter Jane McKellar.
