Go, 4, 5! (1993)

Posted by in Childrens, Shetland on TV

Go, 4, 5! was a programme designed for Scottish Primaries 4 & 5.  They were in Shetland in 1993 for a feature on the Braer and visited Hamnavoe.  Quite painful to watch really but I am sure it will trigger a memory or two for some.

Insiders (1991)

Posted by in Shetland on TV, TV Shows

Insiders was co-hosted by Gordon Kennedy in the early 90’s.  An interesting look into Shetland from a comedy viewpoint.  I had forgotten all about this programme until Philip Hunter reminded me of it (cheers!).  If anybody has any more information about the programme or remembers it being filmed then please let me know as Google has failed me on this one. 🙂
