School set for a star­ring role on Coun­try­file

We ask what is your favourite TV pro­gramme

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

As Ru­glo­ni­ans tuned in to watch Trin­ity High School on BBC’s Coun­try­file, the Re­former took to the streets to ask lo­cals what their favourite TV show is.

We re­ported last week that the high school’s eco-gar­den and new bee hives were filmed as part of Coun­try­file’s visit to La­nark­shire.

The pro­gramme saw pre­sen­ter El­lie Har­ri­son chat with Trin­ity stu­dents, while Matt Baker vis­ited the Clyde Val­ley, once known as the ‘fruit bas­ket of Scot­land’.

Speak­ing to the Re­former just be­fore the pro­gramme broad­cast, Cather­ine McCann said: “I watch Coun­try­file ev­ery week. I like the sto­ries from the coun­try­side es­pe­cially when you live in an ur­ban area.

“I’ll be keep­ing an eye out for the school this week.”

Avid gar­dener Mary Quinn is also a fan of the show.

“It’s re­ally in­ter­est­ing, you get to see the an­i­mals and dif­fer­ent things,” Mary said. “La­nark has a lot of gar­den cen­tres, with all the dif­fer­ent flow­ers and green­houses, it’s pretty pop­u­lar up that way.”

Nor­man Rae said he en­joys na­ture pro­grammes, ad­ding: “I favour doc­u­men­taries cer­tainly. I bought Planet Earth in 4K, that’s four times higher than high def­i­ni­tion.

“I find it all ex­tra­or­di­nary and re­ally fas­ci­nat­ing.”

Jackie Wood said: “Now I know the school is fea­tur­ing, I’ll be watch­ing this week.

“Home­land, that’s my favourite pro­gramme on TV at the mo­ment.
