The Live Borders Podcast
Welcome to the Live Borders Podcast – a podcast from Live Borders showcasing the projects we are running over the lockdown and beyond.
Episode #2 – April, 2021
This time Local History and Archive Assistant Kathy Hobkirk from the Heritage Hub on what we learned from a collection of diaries written by a Selkirk GP in the early 1900’s. And we ask assistant curator Phoebe Stewart what does it taken to look after the collections we have across our museums and galleries, make them accessible for us to see and enjoy now, and to preserve them for future generations.
Phoebe mentions the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, you can read more about him and his work here. You can find out more about the Selkirk born explorer Mungo Park here. Transcripts from Dr. Muir’s diary are available to read on our Tumbler page here, and thank you again to actor John Nichol for bringing the words to life.
