The Proclaimers

It’s 15 years since The Proclaimers made their legendary TV debut on The Tube, performing the classic song Letter From America. Back then, the charts were dominated by the likes of Rick Astley and Sinita and the response to Craig and Charlie Reid, two impassioned brothers singing their hearts out in their own accents about serious political issues was extraordinary. The Proclaimers were unlike anything we had seen before and Channel 4’s switchboards jammed with curious callers. It was the beginning of a phenomenon.

Evelyn Glennie

Evelyn gives more than 100 performances a year all over the world to universal critical acclaim from the toughest of reviewers in many of the world's most esteemed publications. The fact that Evelyn has performed with virtually all of the world's finest orchestras and greatest conductors in the most famous concert halls only proves that Evelyn is one of the world's top international concert soloists and the most in demand solo percussionist in the world. What takes Evelyn a step beyond the ranks of the elite is that she combines her superb technical abilities, a profound appreciation of the visual elements of percussion along with her astonishing musicality to create performances of such stunning vitality that they almost constitute a new type of performance. To this end Evelyn has commissioned over one hundred new works for solo percussion from many of the world's most talented composers. Despite all the advice to the contrary, Evelyn is not only the first person to successfully create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist in the history of classical music but is redefining the goals and expectations of percussion students, orchestras, concert promoters and the general public the world over.

Jack Bruce
Jack Bruce
The composer, the singer, the multi-instrumentalist, the Legend. Hailed as one of the most powerful vocalists and greatest bassists of his time, his improvisational skill and utterly unique, free-spirited approach to composition and performance would forever change the face of electric music. His pioneering, full-toned, free-wheeling playing on the electric bass revolutionised the way the instrument is used and influenced the playing of countless bassists to today, including Sting and Jaco Pastorius. His work with bands such as Cream and the Tony Williams Lifetime, as well as his solo material, unlocked the doors to the pent-up energy of a new approach to the art of sound, breaking the barriers of tradition and creating a kind of music that had never been heard. This is his story.

South Rotunda - Glasgow
Hidden Glasgow
This website exposes the secret and hidden side of Glasgow through photographs, maps and images.
Glasgow was once the mighty second city of the empire, but the collapse of heavy industry saw the city fade into urban decay and dereliction.

This is a trend that is being reversed by a concerted effort to regenerate the city, however this inevitably means the complete obliteration of what once made up the fabric of the city.

There are still remnants of the past visible, and this site asks you to stop and look more closely at what you see every day. Take a little more time to look and appreciate the architecture.

It stretches from Grantown on Spey to the heads of the Angus Glens, from Ballater to Dalwhinnie and Drumochter including much of the Laggan area in the southwest and a large area of the Glen Livet estate and the Strathdon/Glen Buchat area.

The National Park area is home to a quarter of Scotland's native woodland with the biggest continuous stretches of near-natural vegetation in Britain. It is a refuge for a host of rare plants and creatures, including 25% of the U.K's threatened species.

The Bell Rock Lighthouse
The Bell Rock Lighthouse
This site commemorates probably Scotland’s greatest single engineering feat of the early 19th century; its creator and builder, ROBERT STEVENSON; the workmen and seamen who were engaged on its construction; and to JOHN RENNIE, who was appointed Chief Engineer to the project.

It also remembers Capt. David Taylor (1768-1843), who was Master of the Sir Joseph Banks tender during progress of these Works; who later commanded the supply vessel (the Smeaton) on completion of the lighthouse and eventually the new Pharos of 1816; finally taking up the post of Lighthouse Storekeeper in Leith when ill health forced him ashore.

The Hunterian Museum - William Hunter
The Hunterian Museum
In 1783 William Hunter bequeathed his substantial and varied collections to the University of Glasgow.
Hunter also bequeathed £8000 for the construction of a suitable museum. Designed by William Stark, the building, classical in style with a dome on top, was erected in the gardens of the College behind the High Street. The heating system was designed by James Watt. The Museum was opened to the public in 1807 ‘from twelve until two every day, except Sunday.’ The Hunterian is thus Scotland’s oldest museum.

St Kilda
The archipelago of St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles, lies 41 miles (66 kilometres) west of Benbecula in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. Its islands with their exceptional cliffs and sea stacs, form the most important seabird breeding station in north-west Europe. The evacuation of its native population in 1930 brought to a close an extraordinary story of survival.

This site tells that story and also explains activities taking place today in this special place.
