BBC Scotland

I have been contacted by a producer from BBC Scotland regarding a documentary they are making about how commodities like sugar, whisky and tobacco helped the Scottish economy and British Empire grow.

For the episode about tobacco, they are looking for a couple of Scottish pipe smokers who would be willing to be interviewed on camera by Brian Cox (the actor). Preferably ones with a knowledge of the mid 19th century, when briar and Balkan tobacco both became popular.

If you can help, please get in touch and I will pass on contact details.
