Robin A Crawford & Donald S Murray

Robin A Crawford & Donald S Murray

Robin A Crawford’s Into the Peatlands explores how they have come to be and examines how peat has been used from the Bronze Age onwards. He also talks about the wildlife and folklore associated with these lonely, watery places.  Donald S. Murray spent much of his childhood either playing or working on the moor, chasing sheep across empty acres and cutting and gathering peat for fuel, and his book The Dark Stuff: Stories from the Peatlands is an examination of how this landscape affected him and others. They are joined by Shetland singer-songwriter Donald Anderson. Chaired by Gabriella Bennet, Reporter, The Times Scotland
