Radio Scotland record programme on Elspeth Buchan at Newhouse

A BBC Radio Scotland production team were at Newhouse in November to record part of a programme about Elspeth Buchan called "Women with a Past." 

Pictured from left to right: producer Louise Yeoman, Hamish MacDonald playwright and author of "The Heretics Tale", a play about Elspeth Buchan, Presenter Susan Morrison, comedian and organiser of the History Festival, and archaeologists David and Maggie Connolly. 

Maggie seems a bit camera shy....she can just be seen ducking behind Susan!
