Bill McCue was a TV star in the 70s and 80s and one of the founding singers with Scottish Opera. With his powerful bass voice and endless enthusiasm for all things Scottish, Bill introduced many a Scot to the songs of Robert Burns. As a teenager, his daughter Kirsteen felt that Robert Burns was an unwanted intrusion into her life: 'Burns was on such a pedestal in our house, it almost put me off'. Now a professor at Glasgow University and a leading expert on Burns, Kirsteen has changed her tune.

With Karine Polwart, Jamie MacDougall and rare archive footage.

We are currently hard at work on the first of the Ambisonically recorded Digital Adaptations series, John Buchan's The Thirty Nine Steps. Players will step into the world that exists in the book and experience the incredible adventure of Richard Hannay in an interactive-cinematic way. Set in 1914, players will be immersed in authentic settings, where they can explore locations and make choices as to how they wish to experience the story, orchestrating the action as it moves forward towards its thrilling climax. But this isn't a director's take on the classic novel. This IS the novel brought to life on gaming platforms, where all of the audiences' senses are used to tell the story.

Raydale Dower investigates sonic repercussion by dropping an upright piano from the ceiling of Tramway’s T1 theatre space and recording the unfolding composition.  The recording is re-presented as a sound and film installation, slowing the image and sound to highlight the inherent musicality present within this catastrophic and momentary act.

Recorded at 1000 fps on high speed Photon cameras, the impact is replayed as a continuous loop - at its most extended, 40 times (4000%) slower than the actual event. The accompanying sonic repercussions are captured and presented in a large sound installation combining  B-format recording within an ambisonic speaker array.

Piano Drop is realised in partnership with The Digital Design Studio/GSA, ARUP Acoustics and Tramway.  Supported by a Vital Spark Award, Creative Scotland, 2011.

Travellers

Travellers have been the focus of some intense media scrutiny recently, but what’s life really like for Travellers in Scotland? This two-part observational documentary series is the culmination of nine months filming with two families - headed by Sammy Stewart and his brother-in-law Donald (above) - who hold to the travelling life rather than ‘settle’. The families agreed to be filmed despite the fact that many Travellers rarely talk to anyone outside their community.

The series follows them over a travelling season as they and their families move from urban Travellers’ sites, to contested pitches, to rural encampments, meeting various people and attitudes along the way, including ongoing friction with ‘the settled community’ and police attention.

The Madness of Peter Howson

Hand Pict / BBC Scotland
25 November 2010 9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

Peter Howson is one of the world's most collected living artists – his work hangs on the walls of galleries and museums and in the homes of rock stars and actors. In the past he has battled with alcohol and drug addiction, had financial problems and, after years of mental illness, has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism characterised by difficulties in dealing with other people. In 2008, he received the biggest commission of his career – to paint the largest-ever crowd scene in the history of British art. The Archdiocese of Glasgow made the contentious decision to pick Peter, a protestant and a reformed addict, to paint a massive eight-metre-high canvas depicting the martyrdom of Saint John Ogilvie as part of the renovation of St Andrew's Cathedral in Glasgow. But the commission is fraught with so much funding difficulty that its completion is in jeopardy from day one. This film follows Peter over two difficult years; a journey that took him to the brink of bankruptcy; and also to the edge of his sanity. The Madness Of Peter Howson is narrated by Peter Capaldi, who was at Glasgow School of Art at the same time as Howson. The hour-long programme reveals that Peter destroys the canvas he has worked on for nine months but goes on to create a new Ogilvie in secret, which is unveiled at the end of the film.

Addicts - No Children Allowed (Scotland Investigates)

BBC Scotland
18 October 2010 19:30

Would it be better if 60,000 children in Scotland had never been born? That is the controversial conclusion of Barbara Harris who believes that Scotland's drug and alcohol addicts should not be allowed to procreate. This programme investigates Barbara's contentious American charity Project Prevention as it attempts to set up in the UK. The charity is devoted to paying every addict who agrees to either long term birth control or sterilisation 200 pounds to stop them having any more children. The social and economic cost of Scotland's current addiction problem runs to a staggering 2.6 billion pounds a year, and Barbara thinks she can solve it at its source. But critics have called her methods unethical, comparing her to Hitler and accusing her of practicing eugenics. With over 3000 addicts already signed up in the US, can Project Prevention help Scotland's serious and long-standing addiction problems, or is this modern day eugenics?

The bodies of Helen Scott and Christine Eadie were found in fields about six miles apart in East Lothian in October 1977.

Both of the 17-year-old girls were naked from the waist down, and had been horrifically beaten and sexually assaulted.

Two years ago, convicted killer Angus Sinclair, 64, was cleared of committing what had become known as the World's End murders after his trial collapsed.

The case led to the Scottish government ordering a review of the country's double jeopardy rule, which prevents someone standing trial twice for the same offence.

BBC Scotland investigations correspondent Mark Daly has spent the past four months examining whether Sinclair could be a serial killer responsible for murdering at least seven women.

It is often said that history is written by the victors. Arguably, the world's understanding of Africa's history has been filtered by European historians with limited appreciation of the continent's pre-colonial past. This intelligent and thought-provoking series reveals the extraordinary history of some of Africa's ancient civilisations, exploring spectacular ruins and investigating the myths and legends that surround these mysterious kingdoms. Historian and art expert Gus Casely-Hayford journeys through different regions of contemporary Africa, discovering the remnants of its pre-colonial glory with the help of some of Africa's finest minds. From the pyramids of the Sudan and the extraordinary history of Ethiopia, to the great trading empires of the East Coast and the Golden age of the Kingdom of Mali, this four-part series takes the viewer on a journey through the forgotten past of Africa.
