Watch and Listen 60s
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 colour transmissions. These are a selection of our programming highlights from the 1960s.
