BBC ALBA PROFILES THE REMARKABLE CAREER OF JOURNALIST, POLITICIAN AND BUSINESSMAN BRIAN WILSON

A new BBC ALBA documentary is to provide a candid portrait of former UK government minister and prominent Scottish politician, Brian Wilson.

The programme, which will be screened on the channel on Friday, January 2, looks back over his remarkable career from his days promoting music bands in his hometown of Dunoon, his successful time in journalism onto life at Westminster and beyond.

Featuring contributions from former Chancellor Alistair Darling, one-time Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Forsyth, and political journalist Torcuil Crichton, the programme chronicles Wilson’s journey to election and also his involvement in the debate over Scotland’s constitutional future.

Wilson talks frankly about his political life, whilst his former foe at the dispatch box, Lord Forsyth, admits that Wilson’s forthright views on issues such as land reform and the Gaelic language influenced his own policies whilst he was in office. Torcuil Crichton argues that Wilson was ‘neither a Blairite nor a Brownite but a Wilsonite’ and this desire to follow his own path was a contributory reason to why Wilson didn't land a cabinet post in government.

Yet, his political life is only one small part of his multi-faceted career thus far.

Using archive footage and new interviews filmed with Brian at home and on the road, he recounts the days when he set up the West Highland Free Press in 1971 and broke the mould of the local newspaper, dealing with local, national and international issues with ease.

More recently, Brian talks about his continuing passion for Celtic Football Club, where he is a director, and the programme chronicles the contribution Wilson has made in reviving the fortunes of the Harris Tweed industry.

A candid portrait of a private man who spends much of his life in the public eye - Brian Wilson, produced by BeesNees Media for BBC ALBA - will be shown on Friday 2 January at 9.00 until 10.00pm.

Brian Wilson

Tha sgeulachd an neach-naidheachd, an neach-poileataics agus an neach-gnìomhachas, Brian MacUilleam, air innse tro chòmhraidhean, tro thasglann farsaing de dheilbh is fiolm agus tro bheachdan bho charaidean is eascharaidean. Bho làithean òige ann an Dùn Omhain, gu Oilthigh Dhùn Deagh na oileanach, gu Westminster na BhP, a’ gabhail a-steach an t-Eilean Sgìtheanach na neach-naidheachd, tha an stòraidh aige air a h-innse le caraidean, luchd-eòlais agus feadhainn a bha uair na ‘n nàimhdean phoileataiceach aige.

Tha seann Rùnaire Stàite na h-Alba, am Morair Forsyth à Druim Leathann a faicinn Brian mar, “…beagan de chomhaicheadh,” air a ghlacadh eadar na beachdan poileataiceach clì a bha e a’ leantainn na òige agus an tagradh a rinn e nuair a bha e na bu shine as leth an treas slighe agus margadh shaor. Tha an neach-naidheachd Torcuil Crichton ag radh nach e, "neach taic Blair no neach leantainn Brown ach na MacUilleamach" - duine a tha a’ deanamh a shlighe fhèin.

Fad a bheatha, bha sùil gheur aig Brian air cothroman, an còmhnaidh deiseil airson diofar a dhèanamh. Chuir e fhèin agus caraidean Am Pàipear Beag air bhonn an a 1971, agus le bhith a dèiligeadh le naidheachdan dùthchail, nàiseanta agus eadar-nàiseanta dh’ atharraich iad gu tur an ìomhaigh a bha air a bhith aig pàipear-naidheachd ionadail. Làidir na bheachdan agus tro na bha e a' sgrìobhadh, bhiodh e a’ sabaid as leth còirichean choimhearsnachdan iomallach air feadh Alba fhad’s a bha e na bhall phàrlamaid. Bho rinn e dhachaidh ann an Leòdhas, tha Brian air a bhi soirbheachail mar stiùiriche de chompanaidh Clò Mhòir, agus a’ toirt an aon lèirsinn is spionnadh gu caibideil ùr na bheatha.

"Brian Wilson,” a dèanamh dealbh fhosgarra de dhuine prìbheideach a tha a’ cur seachad cuid mhòr dhe bheatha fa chomhair an t-sluaigh.
