If you have already signed up to be part of the Doric TV community, that’s great news, but please take time to send details of this great new service from Doric Future to anyone you think might be interested.

Since launching Doric TV last year in a bid to lift spirits amidst the chaos caused by Covid 19, we began by introducing ordinary people who did extraordinary things, usually with some connection to the Doric language or culture. However, we have also featured a number of celebrity guests including Dame Evelyn Glennie who were keen to get involved and support what we were doing.

We soon found that we had such a variety of talented and interesting people to introduce you to, that we could arrange our Doric Future Blog content and Doric TV interviews into the collections shown here to enhance your visitor experience, we hope you quickly find your way to articles you enjoy, and that you will visit us time and again to explore the ever-growing content of our sites.

Jill has also interviewed many of these amazing people, and their stories can be found in this section of the Doric TV archive.

People

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.
