Curling Featured on Great British Railway Journeys

Posted on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 4:05pm

We were delighted to work on a curling feature for Great British Railway Journeys which was broadcast earlier this year on BBC 2 as part of the first episode of the new series, Ayr-Stewarton.

In this journey Michael Portillo passes through southern Scotland from west to east. From Ayr, he admires Ailsa Craig before getting to grips with curling. A short feature on how curling stones are made is followed by  RCCC Development Manager and former World Champion Sheila Swan who takes Michael through the basics of the sport on ice.
