DC Thomson Founder Subject of Radio Documentary

Sports journalist, Roddy Forsyth, began his career working for Dundee newspaper, the Evening Telegraph, and last week, for BBC Radio Scotland, he revisited some of his old haunts, with a documentary about the paper’s founder.

His biography of DC Thomson is part of a BBC Radio Scotland series, ‘In the Footsteps of’. It can be found by clicking here, then the Radio Scotland section, then the ‘listen again’ button, and then by scrolling through the menu of programme options.

Among others, Forsyth interviews well-known Scottish journalist, George Rosie. The company itself declined to take part in the programme.
