The first Gaelic language television, other
than the Mod, was made in 1962, two new television studios were opened
in Aberdeen and Edinburgh and BBC 2 came to Scotland in 1966, with the
introduction of the Blackhill transmitters. We showed the opening of Glasgow
Airport, The Queen Of The Clyde, the first episode of Reporting Scotland
with Mary Marquis in 1968 and in December 1969, we broadcast the first
