Scottish TV looking for Brigaders’ families

Post date: 24/04/2016

Are you related to a Brigader from the Spanish Civil War? The STV would like to hear from you.


The STV's The People’s History show is doing a number of pieces on the Spanish Civil War and would like to interview Brigaders' families for this show.


Ian Hendry of STV said: ‘I’m aware that the last Scottish veteran, Thomas Watters passed away in 2012 but I was wondering if there were any Brigaders' family members that would be willing to be interviewed. 


‘We would also use the content for our daily magazine show Live@Five.’


If you are the relative of a brigader and interested in being interviewed you can contact Ian at


Meanwhile the newly published Aberdeen Trades Union Council Annual Report features on its cover the march of International Brigade and trade union banners through Aberdeen city centre on 18 October last year during the IBMT’s Annual General Meeting weekend in the city. Inside there are reports and more photos from the AGM.
