For most of us, our home is our haven. It’s where we feel safe and secure. However, there are hundreds of children across Scotland who are scared to go home because they are experiencing abuse or neglect. Through abuse and trauma recovery services, CHILDREN 1ST staff help these children to express their feelings and rebuild their confidence through play and art therapy. Therapeutic support such as this is vital in helping the child overcome the trauma they have experienced

Tonight’s Hosts

TONIGHT’S SPECIAL GUEST

Catriona Shearer

Dougie Vipond

Jonathan Watson

Catriona Shearer is best known for waking up the nation – as the face of BBC Scotland’s Breakfast TV bulletins. She also anchors the flagship news programme Reporting Scotland on a regular basis and has hosted the programme live from Wimbledon.

Dougie is the main presenter for BBC Scotland’s Sportscene and is a reporter and presenter for Reporting Scotland and Sportsound.

Born in Glasgow, Jonathan trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. On leaving College he joined the Glasgow Citizens’ T.A.G. Theatre Company and went on to work with the Traverse, Borderline, 7:84, Royal Lyceum, Perth Rep., and the Scottish Theatre Co., while returning to the Citizens’ on many occasions.

His love of sport is most evident in the extreme sports series which he also hosts, The Adventure Show. In addition to his sports presenting he has also reported on BBC Holiday, Summer Holiday and Holiday’s Out. Dougie has co-presented The Kirsty Wark Show and presented The Big Country, BBC Scotland’s guide to leisure activities north of the border. He has also been a guest presenter on ITV’s This Morning.

Out with the news agenda, Catriona has presented a BBC One documentary on the Pope’s visit to Scotland and, as a keen music fan, has covered T In The Park live for television and has hosted the New Music Zone for BBC Radio Scotland. Newscaster-turned-quizmaster Catriona presented a radio quiz series for BBC Radio Scotland called Soundbiters.

In a past life, Dougie was founder member and drummer with the band Deacon Blue with whom he recorded and toured for eight years.

Shearer fulfilled an ambition by making her comedy debut on the BBC’s Only An Excuse programme at New Year.

Special attracts an audience of over a million viewers each year. The show has also enjoyed great success when transferred to the stage. Television work also includes, The Bill, Casualty, the award winning New Town, and Garrow’s Law. Film work includes - Local Hero, Girl in the Picture, The Match, and Solid Geometry.

While featuring in many television dramas earlier on in his career, it was his involvement with BBC Scotlands’ Comedy Unit that brought him to the public’s attention. Naked Video, City Lights, and Rab C. Nesbitt are just some of the programmes he has been involved in.

This year sees Jonathan returning to the theatre in Iain Heggie’s King of Scotland at The Tron, then touring. Plus, The Return of Watson’s Wind up at The Citizens - as part of The Magners International Comedy Festival.

However, it is the satirical look at Scottish football - seen through the eyes of Only An Excuse? - for which he is best known. Transmitted just before the bells, BBC Scotland’s Only An Excuse? Hogmanay
