Although Doric Future and Doric TV are relatively new services that were launched late in 2019, Jill had previously amassed an impressive collection of video interviews featuring a wide variety of ordinary 'Doric' people who were happy to share their stories and reminiscences which have become an important archive of the folks who live in North East corner of Scotland. More recently with the launch of Doric TV, Jill has added to this content with some amazing interviews, many still come from the ordinary people who have always been at the centre of her work, but professionals and academics have been willing to support Jill's work by giving their own interviews and adding to the breadth of content available to Doric TV viewers.
