Remembering SoundTown


While researching the book, I opened a flight case of old video tapes and have spent some time resurrecting them into a new digital life-form.  Among them was about an hour of footage from a fun run that BBC Radio Scotland organised with the villagers of Dalmellington in March 2004.

This was one of the final events of our SoundTown collaboration with Doon Academy and, despite the rain (which hampered my best efforts to capture any useful shots on my little camera) a host of BBC staff and presenters joined local people for the 5K race around this former mining town. See how many you can spot.

For me, watching the video is a bittersweet experience. I see lots of old friends and colleagues, but also some people we have lost in the past 14 years.

Good memories, though.
