The White Heather Club took up the baton from Draw in Your Chair and ran from
1958 to 1968. Andy Stewart presented and sang in the Scottish country dance music
show, which, at its peak, drew in an audience of 10 million people and turned
Stewart into an international star. This very Scottish image, awash with kilts
and fiddles, is one which the rest of the network took to be a true representation
First televised on 7 May 1958, Robert Wilson was supposed to present the first
ever edition of The White Heather Club but the telerecording was faulty and Andy
Stewart had to step in as presenter.
