Autumn Watch 2012

Autumn Watch came to a conclusion last night and I had the honour of being invited on the set and to see how the program is made. 80 staff, five thousand cups of coffee and five hundred donuts! Seriously though it was an intriguing look behind the scenes and to see the truth behind the screen. Good news is they are coming back after christmas to do Winter Watch. This can do no harm for Highland Tourism. Those that saw the fantastic photos and the beautifull scenery, that is what I see every morning. What I couldn’t help but notice was that the BBC, that dedicated supporter of renewable energy and acolyte of Anthropogenic Climate Change, managed to produce four days of filming without a single turbine. Just like Visit Scotland do. Do our Scottish Ministers really want destroy the beauty that we have for an industrialised landscape. Go to the south of Scotland and see the impact and there really is no excuse. Only greed and ambition. Oh, and total stupidity and culpability!






About Dougal Quixote

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    Funny you should mention that. The other day I watched one of those daytime BBC TV shows featuring couples who want to relocate to the country. It was based in Scotland, looking at properties in the £500k bracket. Lots of camera scans of rolling countryside and distant hills, with not a single turbine in sight!
