Some Other Scotland - Ep12 - UFO


This Week:

  • Erica keeps attention away from the village.
  • Razer comes to a decision about his future.
  • Tania takes Erica on an unusual trip.

This week’s news story:

Pitlochry's UFO taken seriously by MOD

changed to the alternative:

Harrier pilots didn't see UFO

Documents about UFO sightings, recently released by the Ministry of Defence, include details of photographs showing a large diamond-shaped UFO hovering above a harrier jet. Commenting on the released information, the MOD clarified their earlier statement by saying that although jets were operating in the area, the pilots saw nothing and flight records showed no unusual activity was encountered.

Mick Bordet's Facebook Profile

Everybody has their own preferences for communication, whether it be phone, email, twitter, or something else. You can already leave feedback for us in the comments of each week's postings or by emailing me direct, Twitter is one of our most important ways of letting you know that there is a new episode or poll available or something unusual is about to happen, as well as being a way to bring some more of the story in the form of character tweets.

However, I know plenty of people who would never use Twitter, but use Facebook regularly, so for their benefit I have set up a 'Some Other Scotland page on Facebook. There's not a lot there so far apart from a couple of pictures, but there is plenty of new material to come that will appear there, so you can follow that page for more details. There are spaces for discussion and special events too, so you can let us know your thoughts on the plot, the characters or where the podcast is going.

We hope you can join us and bring the Facebook page to life!

Some Other Scotland - Ep11 - Safe Conduct

Safe Conduct

This Week:

  • Tania and Erica work on a plan.
  • Sykes and Hayston visit Charles and make another link.
  • Razer causes a little more than a shaving cut.

This week’s news story:

Demands for return of letter to Wallace

changed to the alternative:

Wallace letter taken

The letter of Safe Conduct, sent to William Wallace by the King of France, has been stolen from the National Archives in London. Scottish MPs had recently been calling for the return of the letter to Scotland, as one of the few remaining possessions of Wallace in existence. The letter was found on him when he was captured at Robroyston and taken to London.

Personal Effects: Dark Art

Some time ago I featured a promo for J.C. Hutchins' Personal Effects: Dark Art in the podcast. The book is now available and it's more than just a book: it comes with a collection of 'personal effects' that provide clues that add to the story in a way that word alone cannot. Intrigued? Here's a video featuring some people who have already read the book. If this doesn't grab your attention then probably nothing will!
