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.


History of Bullseye TV Programme


The original Bullseye was on TV from 1981 until 1995. The host and question master was Jim Bowen and the darts scorer was Tony Green. It was broadcast on Sunday evenings. It attracted approximately 15 million viewers each week.
Teams of two would compete with other contestants to answer questions and play darts for prizes such as cash, cars, powerboats and motor homes. Losers of Bullseye would get a bully toy and a bully tankard.


Jim Bowen Catchphrases


Jim had some cracking catchphrases such as saying to losing contestants "come and look at what you could have won" before showing them a gleaming speedboat or caravan. His favourite catchphrase was "You can't beat a bit of bully" which he'd say several times during the show.


Bullseye Challenge TV


The new Bullseye programme will be shown on Digital Television Challenge TV channel. Sadly Jim Bowen will no longer host the programme. Instead the question master host will be comedienne Dave Spikey who has appeared on TV comedies such as 8 Out of 10 Cats and Phoenix Nights, which he co-wrote with Peter Kaye. Tony Green will be returning to count the dart scores.
The first episode will be on 17 April 2006.
