Scots on the Box



Fred MacAulay


BBC One Scotland, 31 December 2012


A panel of Scottish television greats - Ronni Ancona, Alex Norton, Sanjeev Kholi, Neil Oliver, Susan Calman and Mark Nelson - test their memories of Scottish television. Essentially it was video clip (both BBC and independent archives were raided), question or two about it, bit of banter, repeat until time runs out. Pretty much A Question of TV Goes to Glasgow.

A Hogmanay special, shown in two half-hour parts.

Key moments

Neil Oliver getting on a roll with food puns. And then not knowing when to shut up.


Fred MacAulay managed to turn up as the presenter of Hogmanay specials on BBC One Scotland and STV on the same night, thanks to this and a documentary called "Fred MacAulay's Highland Wahey" (following his charity trek along the Highland Way).

Likewise, Susan Calman and Neil Oliver appeared as teammates on two different quizzes that night, as they'd turned up a couple of hours earlier as half of the Glasgow team on Christmas University Challenge.
