Scope & Content: The film is entirely in the Manx language and is thought to be the first ever film made in Manx.

'Ny Kirree Fo Niaghtey' (The Sheep Under the Snow) is based upon the traditional Manx folk song 'Kirree Fo Niaghtey' about the loss of sheep after a heavy snowfall. The film examines the places and people mentioned in the song and gives biographical information about the Qualtrough family.

The film was shot in the Lonan area over Easter 1983 and features footage of the places mentioned in the song. It is narrated by Douglas Faragher and also features Brian Stowell singing Kirree Fo Niaghtey.

The film also references versions of the song that are found in manuscripts in the Manx Museum Archive, (MS 08307/MD 900)

There are a full set of credits at the end of the film.
