BBC Scotland's first live children's television
show launched in 1982 and you can watch an early excerpt of 'Tiger' Tim
and the gang below. John Byrne's Tutti Frutti was the biggest hit of the
1980s and launched the careers of Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson and Richard
Wilson. BBC Scotland opened its subtitling unit, The Boy David, part of
The Visit, won a New York Film and Television Festival Award and we broadcast
for five months from the Glasgow Garden Festival site in 1988. More of
