Did you go ‘doon the watter’ for your holidays? Do you remember dancing in the Pavilion? Donkeys on the beach?

If so, Raise the Roof Productions would love to talk to you for a new BBC One show which will feature Rothesay as it takes viewers on a trip down memory lane, courtesy of celebrity guests.

Presented by Len Goodman, the show - ‘Holiday Of My Lifetime’ - will feature archive footage of some of the UK’s most popular holiday spots from days gone by, as well as interviews with local historians - and the production team behind the show is hoping that Bute residents might be able to assist prior to their visit to the island for filming.

Anyone who remembers Rothesay, in particular back in 1959, or perhaps is a former holiday maker who has now settled in Rothesay and can provide an eyewitness account of what the town was like back then, is asked to get in touch with Raise the Roof Productions by phoning 0141 427 5880 or 07462 435 597, or by emailing Stuart.Burnett@raisetheroofproductions.com.
