Thanks for this, Francis - it's interesting. I think there's internal evidence to date the programme fairly specifically. The commentator says that the new bagpipe museum at The Chantry opened "last year". If The Chantry museum celebrated its 21st anniversary last year (2008) then the programme must have been made twenty years before that, which suggests 1988.
Just for interest, one of the artifacts rescued by Anne Moore and her helpers from the floods last year was a photo of Jack Armstrong taken while he was in Hollywood, presumably on the trip during which he made the recording with Burl Ives.
