GUEST,Strollin' Johnny BBC TV Hogmanay - Rusby etc (92* d) RE: BBC TV Hogmanay - Rusby etc 07 Jan 04

You're so right about the programme as a whole John, it was indeed below par (Phil, Aly and John McCusker excepted). Why have some washed-up yank, trading on her deceased father's fame, as the star turn? Where were Dougie MacLean, Archie Fisher, Dick Gaughan, Isla St. Clair, The Battlefields and countless other supremely talented, if less well-known South Of The Border, Scottish artistes? And who was the silly little pillock who co-presented the show? Embarrassing's not the word!

A few years ago 'Hogmanay Live' had the likes of Wolfstone, Bonnie Raitt, Rod Paterson and it was a great show and a credit to the Scots. Shame the same can't be said about the recent offering.
