My Radio Play – This Solitary Bird


This Solitary Bird, my first radio play went out today on BBC Radio Scotland.

It’s a fictionalised story of an unusual friendship formed at the margins of society, based loosely on my late friend Will McMillan. I met him soon after I arrived in Edinburgh 18 years ago to work as a cub reporter on the Edinburgh Evening News.

I’ll be blogging shortly about the experience of writing and recording the play. But here’s my article in today’s Herald about the friendship that lay behind it.
