Acting on the radio is challenging, inspiring, delicate and always a privilege.

This episode of Songlines was broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland on June 16, 2008 from 11:30am to noon.

Listen to David's introduction to the show and his thoughts and feelings on his favourite band!


He was asked to sing a few bars during the show and he declined, BUT he did sing with The Proclaimers for a special Doctor Who Christmas online video. You can practically feel the joy flying off the screen! 

Songlines is a popular BBC Radio Scotland program that explores the story behind popular songs. 

"It’s been 15 years since The Proclaimers’ 'I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” appeared in the film Benny & Joon and became a U.S. smash — which, incidentally, was five years after it had already been a smash everywhere else. 

Though some are quick to write off this band as a one-hit wonder, they’ve been churning out delightful releases for decades, and all have been marked by their quirky sense of humor, their palpable politics and passions, and their effervescent joy.

The new one, Life With You, is no different, and boasts a terrific self-titled first single." - BBC


At the 2009 Doctor Who wrap party the entire cast and crew participated in this great lip synched video to 500 Miles, made by Jennie Fava & edited by Geraint Huw Reynolds.
