BBC covers Seafield House story

David Miller, BBC Scotland’s environment and transport correspondent, returned to his roots on Friday to cover a story on the future of Seafield House.  Having had his tonsils removed at Seafield Children’s Hospital, David had a personal interest in the story of the building.

Committee members of Friends of Seafield House (FoSH) together with Robin Ghosh of econstruct,who recently bought the house, gathered in the grounds of Seafield to be interviewed for radio and TV.

FoSH committee members were asked about the importance of the house and what had inspired em to campaign to save it, whilst Robin Ghosh, was asked about his plans for future development of Seafield House and it’s grounds.

The recent introduction of the Clydesdale Bank £5 note, bearing the portrait of Sir William Arrol, has helped raise his profile in the public domain. It is exciting to see that now the house he built will also have it’s profile raised through these radio and TV features.

We don’t yet know when the items will broadcast but we will be sure to post it on the website, facebook and twitter feeds once we do know.
