Viva Variety

It’s been almost 2 years since since we were first approached by lovely producer Ruth Reid about taking part in a fly on the wall documentary about the entertainment business in Scotland.  We are happy to announce that “Viva Variety” will hit our screens from Monday 3rd November 2014 on BBC1 and will run for 4 weeks.

The show will give viewers an insight into the world of variety entertainment, the wide array of talent, what goes on behind the scenes and the amount of work involved in producing a show for your entertainment. If only it was as simple as just turning up at a venue and plugging in a microphone.

You will see the highs and lows of the entertainment industry which is sure to be fairly colourful we would imagine.

Our very own Roberta Childs will appear on the first episode and you can catch Jim Smart, Dionne Hickey, Chris De Rosa and Mr Onkel within the next 3 weeks. To find out a little bit more, see the official BBC advert below with our very own Roberta.

Make sure to set your reminders so you don’t miss us all on Viva Variety – we are looking forward to seeing the finished result

For those of you that love watching talent shows, there's a new series coming up on BBC Scotland that will be right up your street...
