Sacré bleu! On Saturday 2nd November the popular mid-evening French TV magazine
programme “50 Minutes Inside” broadcast a piece called “Légendes d’Ecosse” (Legends
of Scotland), on the Scottish predilection for all things supernatural and spooky, especially at Halloween.
Amidst the Harry Pottering and the actors in ghost paint, some beardy bloke in a Doctor
Who scarf waffled on about ghosts and bodysnatching:
“50 Minutes Inside” (or “50mn Inside”) is broadcast on TF1, the French equivalent of
BBC1. My thanks to reporter Tania Meppiel and cameraman Pierre for an enjoyable two
days’ filming at Scone Palace and St Andrews.
