Join Alex Gordon & Maggie Dun for a look behind the headlines of the biggest stories of the last fifty years in Scottish Journalism.

Join us for a look behind the headlines of the biggest stories of the last fifty years in Scottish Journalism told by the people who were there and who broke the stories. Alex Gordon’s Jinx Dogs Burns Now Flu is a hilarious book in which some of the best stories are the ones that didn’t make it to print. Bill Anderson was the much-respected editor of The Sunday Post and Bill’s widow Maggie will be here to talk about his autobiography, a fascinating account of his childhood in working-class Scotland in the 1930s and 40s, and of his time at the best-read newspaper in the world.
