A new documentary focusing on the River Tweed and the people who live and work on and alongside it will be broadcast next week.
‘The River’ will be shown on BBC One Scotland weekly from Monday 7 November and has been produced by the company behind the successful documentary on Aviemore and the Cairngorms – ‘The Mountain’.
The programme will be available UK-wide on the BBC iPlayer after broadcast.
Scottish Borders Council Councillor Stuart Bell said: “The River Tweed is known across the world for its salmon fishing and it plays a key role in our local economy on that basis. However, this new series will tell the much wider story about the role the Tweed has in so many people’s lives in the Scottish Borders.
“This is a unique opportunity to promote the Scottish Borders to a nationwide audience and I hope it will encourage even more people to come and visit this area, take in our stunning scenery and outdoor activities, enjoy our many attractions and our fabulous food and drink.”
