When Did Viv join the BBC? was it before or after her husband?
After! Alan Douglas was at the BBC (as a reporter) long before Viv arrived. Alan has to fill in one day in the studio when Malcolm Wilson was taken Ill. And he became a regular-ish presenter thereafter. Alongside his passionate niche of reporting on MotorSports.
Viv arrived during the BBC Sixty Minutes era, where she appeared only on a Friday during a 15mins segment called Inside Outside Scotland, embedded into the last fifteen minutes of Scotland Sixty Minutes on a Friday. Viv co presented from a soft sofa set alongside someone called Roddy McDonald (if I’m not mistaken), and shortly thereafter started presenting the main and revived Reporting Scotland on Friday’s only.
In summary: Alan was there long before Viv.
