It was wonderful to have had the opportunity to speak about my Cold War Hockey film on Connie McLaughlin’s Morning show on BBC Radio Scotland, alongside Scotland player Jenna Park. There’s a link to the sequence here. Jenna and I are interviewed from around 2:20:00 to 2:30:00.

Cold War Hockey aired on BBC ALBA last night at 9pm and the response has been fantastic. It really has been a privilege telling this story. Women’s voices in history are so often hidden, and when it comes to sport women’s voices have been consistently marginalised, so it has been an honour to give my Scotland hockey players the platform they so richly deserve to tell their fascinating story.

The film is now available on iPlayer for 30 days. Enjoy!
