Landward - BBC Scotland 
I appeared on Episode 24 December 2021 which is still available to view on BBC iplayer.  Filmed at Strathpeffer Station, I was speaking about the railway line to Kyle of Lochalsh

World's Most Scenic Railway Journeys 

 This was on My5. The programme was about a journey from Inverness to Edinburgh. My contribution was at the Culloden Viaduct in the snow. There were some great aerial shots of the wonderful viaduct - the largest stone structure in Scotland and Murdoch Paterson's last great masterpiece.  If there is a repeat it is well worth watching.

I have contributed twice to Radio Scotland's family history programme Digging up your Roots.

I appeared in Series 5 of Great British Railway Journeys when  Michael Portillo interviewed me about Murdoch Paterson and the design and construction of the direct railway line from Aviemore to Inverness which opened in 1898. I also contributed to a programme on the history of the Highland Railway shown on BBC Alba.

In WW1 around twenty-five shinty players from my village, Beauly were killed in the conflict. I contributed to a programme about this which was shown on BBC Alba and BBC2. I have also appeared in concerts on this subject.

Please contact me if you think I can make a contribution to programmes you are planning.
