The Nasheed Factor is coming to Dundee
The Nasheed Factor is coming to Dundee with auditions already having taken place in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Organised as part of Islamic Relief it aims to raise money for one village as a sustainable project for its charity work. The competition features Islamic songs with a format loosely based on The X Factor and aims to promote the positive perception of Islam challenging the stereotypical images. The Dundee team Shaista Ali and Samina Nasir spoke to us outside the Caird Hall in Dundee to explain more about the competition and to invite people to take part in the Dundee auditions to be held at the Dundee Community Centre in Guthrie Street on saturday 8th September.

Dundee company helps make Glasgow greener
Motorists will be able to test-drive and hire electric vehicles at a new dedicated facility which is set to open in the heart of Glasgow.
The facility will open alongside a permanent renewable energy exhibition at power firm SSE’s Scottish Hydro Centre for Renewable Excellence.
Cars, electric scooters and bikes will be available to rent from the centre, close to Glasgow Central train station. The Greenway electric scooters and Freego electric bikes used were supplied by Electric Bikes Scotland who are based in Dundonald Street Dundee.
The facility will be next to an interactive renewable energy exhibition run by SSE.
The Power of Now exhibition will include a display showing how a hydroelectric dam works and a simulation of the electricity network, showing how renewable generation connects to the transmission network and is then transported into the home.
There will also be a visual display of a “smart home”, featuring the latest technology in heat pumps, electric heating and boilers.
The Dundee Channel’s supernatural series returns this week with “The House of Five”. Part two of “The Rise of Darkness” story line which sees a team of investigators sent to look into the mysterious House of Five which Tourk warns has provided a portal for four more spirits to enter our world.
There’s more good news too as another episode is planned to shoot before Christmas and another in January though the storylines are top secret at the moment The Dundee Channel intends to produce an episode every month in the new year.
More new characters are introduced in this episode and remember there’s the opportunity for everyone throughout Scotland to become involved with the continuing storyline both in front and behind the camera. Actors from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Fife have already taken part.
