Baubles and Bells

Celebrating 60 years of television in Scotland with a look at Christmas and Hogmanay programmes. From the BBC's White Heather Club with Andy Stewart to the disco dancing specials of STV, the broadcasters engaged in 'the battle of the bells'. Hogmanay shows have, for better or worse, defined our culture at this very Scottish time of year. Duncan Macrae's Wee Cock Sparra set the comic tone before Scotch and Wry, and Jimmy Shand kept the ceilidh reeling long before Phil Cunningham. And as the world celebrated the millennium, strange forces terrorised the locals of High Road.
