Dotaman

Dotaman (Scottish Gaelic for 'spinning top') was the first Scottish Gaelic children's TV programme for pre-schoolers. It began 17 October 1985 and was written by and starred Donnie Macleod.

Donnie had a different silly hat for every song, with something relevant to the song on it. One of his most famous was a hat with a red telephone on it. The songs were about things every day to the children watching, while the style and structure of the songs were traditionally gaelic.
