2:32 am
and 2008 when it's a child to beauty so it was a much smaller slate to jimmy not point out say. it was a clever well read in the self-taught in the main an issue say here norton some of the great towering figures of the of the 20th century have and i know that one of his great friends was with paul robeson the great american based center and civil rights activists were what exhibit tell you about paul robeson well into schildt. on a passport called him when jimmy was walking through the communist party in london and the 1960 s. and they function with his wife joan it was approached by paul lopes in themselves who says i want to speak to jimmy reed college and soldier. and sang to him profusely for helping the son so it was quite an experience and it got to a polo person and consumption of quite such an admirable man. well with paul
2:33 am
robeson was the toting figure of the civil rights movement before martin luther king passed security during the mccarthy period but also whether the greatest singer in the world but he had a particular affection for scotland then the paul robeson is a dead jimmy with talk of the only obstacle found in law school at scottish audiences and of course had bidden songs bum's some of the jewel held the scots loved him of course and his film the film felice. is activism of the slip. but everybody went on a political journey from the communist party if ur the labor party events they joined the scottish national party did a i signed them up with any of your conversations with jimmy reflect the political job me yes emotional from a 994 new little project to who and began
2:34 am
a process for journey of disenfranchisement from little to do little party always easy a little movement none. it become projects simply too tensed at that point it would stay in little toy only to see a scottish parliament take place for all his adult life and campaign for without talent been achieved it in understood motos should come to town and finally when he joined this impi even believed it schoolchildren and in the country and we should seek a place amongst the nations. of the greatest things that there's a member for perhaps of the year c.s. what can the upper quite shipbuilder of what can of almost 50 years ago and then the amazing wreck tauriel address when he was elected rector of glasgow university
2:35 am
tell us 1st about what jimmy told you about the the inside story of your c.s. jimmy such just a new concept which was not luck and it wasn't going straight it went on a 2nd it would continue to pull to ships and when jimmy vault onto the platform john plans and made an incredible and come to our in call well you know it's in tallinn through the agent we have signals of the shots because pierce used except a feast was made in will devastate a life of its reception ity even to tea when. he didn't want me speak it's absolute mismanagement and then of course reg toilet breath asked me to verify. the rat races for raw not for human beings without a resonance internationally the not yes absolutely silly reprint of new york times and janine reveals who that came to be there or paid
2:36 am
editor in the new york times have meant dang he was an authority of course on it one can get written many books and went in and a stage play so when my dang cold cases speech to skate he spoke it was an authority who was seeing us and of course to this day and rightly says from rocks we're not run ins and such powerful lessons to the ages i'm wondering brian mcguigan what we have a fee the likes of jimmy the gammon the sense it was a self-taught self-educated working class hero the days of heavy industry are almost behind us will we ever see someone like that again i think it's highly unlikely alex someone of jimmy's until late seems thought officiously to all his life as a young man highly trained spy by people who are active in his community i think
2:37 am
that jimmy was. a singular figure the unique trigger island light lots of seas light and in. and of course when germany became a celebrity as he did after you see s. on television and a newspaper columns i think people were pretty well astounded i'm sure some of the the dawn said glass butte of asked him who were taken aback by the level of nature of his totally were dressed and i know the kind of woolly a misperception i think about back in the pockets i'm sure when he found us working class guy seemed better read than he was. yes absolutely i think that people who perhaps expected term jimmy a highly political speech which would not encompass the elements dead which were humanity elements of christianity and appeal across the board which meant the tones of classiness the city along with
2:38 am
