I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Aberdeenshire lass Sandi Thom has the honour of singing favourite Scottish song Caledonia. If she looks a bit wind swept it is because she had to take a last minute helicopter flight to Edinburgh from Aberdeen where she performed live at the Castlegate Aberdeen Hogmanay concert. Sandi Thom is due to sing Caledonia just before the 2008 Hogmanay bells that herald in the 2009 New Year.

The 2008 BBC Hogmanay Live Show will once more be presented by Jackie Bird and co host Hardeep Singh Kohli.
