Author S R Crockett's work reprinted on 100th anniversary

In his day, S R Crockett rivalled Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson as a best selling author.

Unlike them, the native Galloway writer's popularity did not endure. His work is now out of print and largely unknown.

On the centenary of his death, 32 of his novels inspired by the people and places of the region are being re-published.

BBC Scotland's Willie Johnston reports.
