Dundee Channel New Year 2014 look back to October 2013

In October thoughts turned to Halloween and a story of superstitions in Lochee. Dundee Channel New Year 2014 look back to October 2013 For a piece of architecture which should have had the purpose of warding off evil the gargoyles in Peel Street Lochee appear to have evoked a different response from generations of school children. Only one of the gargoyles now remains on one of what were four cottages build by workers from the nearby Dryburgh Quarry in a time before such things as planning restrictions existed. But to generations of Lochee school children the beady eyed gargoyle became the face of the Devil and it became commonplace to spit before you past him, to ensure yourself safe passage and show your revulsion of his kind. Residents in the street were well aware of the superstition attributed by local school children to the gargoyle and during our visit residents showed us the remains of other gargoyles on the building which all made for a creepy approach to Halloween. We visited Peel Street on our way to investigate the case of the White Lady of Balgay Bridge.

The Dundee Channel prepares to release Time Capsule video series

Posted onJanuary 17, 2012

The Dundee Channel prepares to release Time Capsule video series.

10 years ago a 30 episode series was recorded in Tayside, Perthshire and Fife capturing many aspects of the towns and cities and was the forerunner to The Dundee Channel. In fact the original S-VHS video series was mothballed until the internet ran fast enough to allow streaming video over10 minutes long.

In preparation for this The Dundee Channel has created a login area on its site where it intends to post these decade old video tapes which feature Dundee, Lochee, Broughty Ferry, Perth, Monifieth, Carnoustie, Arbroath, Forfar and St Andrews – all before anyone had heard of video streaming or You Tube (2005).
