BBC Scotland through the ages

BBC Scotland - the wireless to the web

BBC Scotland has come a long way since the early days of Station 5SC back in 1923 - from national radio to the advent of television in 1952 to the recent online and interactive developments - we've brought news, current affairs, education and entertainment into the homes of generations of men, women and children.

We've trawled the archives to take you on a fascinating journey through some of the best and more notable programming highlights, some dating right back to the '20s. This is by no means a definitive list but it's bound to set you on an exciting nostalgia trip! Click on the timeline on the right to choose a decade and listen to vintage Tammy Troot and The McFlannels and watch classics such as Old Man of Hoy and The Untied Shoelaces Show.
