[edit] Information

Interesting and unusual stories from Scotland, originally transmitted on the BBC series, Nationwide. Nationwide was the BBC's long-running news and current affairs show which was broadcast on BBC One Television from September 1969 to August 1983. It was a magazine show with a remit to cover regional stories across the whole of the United Kingdom. During these years, the team of reporters regularly visited Scotland to bring viewers a wide variety of local and national stories - from the serious to the light-hearted and entertaining. Many of these stories have only been seen once and BBC ALBA is offering viewers the opportunity to see some of the best of Nationwide's Scottish content. Alasdair Fraser presents a selection of stories from the west, east and the islands of Scotland.

[edit] West (An Taobh an Iar)

Alasdair focuses on the west and his highlights include droving cattle 200 miles from Skye to Crieff, an insight into the work of Glasgow's Air Ambulance Service and why Ballachulish was regarded by some as the dirtiest village in Scotland in 1973.

[edit] East (An Taobh an Ear)

The focus is on the east and highlights include a look at the work of the Nimrods in patrolling Britain's fishing limits, Londoners making their way to Aviemore for a weekend of skiing and a Glasgow crane driver resigning to become a shepherd in the Scottish Borders.

[edit] Islands (Na h-Eileanan)

The focus is on Scotland's islands, where Luke Casey visits Rockall in an attempt to raise the Nationwide flag on the rock, there is discord in Harris at Sir Hereward Wake's plan to build a bypass around Amhuinnsuidhe Castle, and Shetlanders consider the effect devolution would have on them given the benefits of the oil boom.
