Talk by Ian Finlay
Ian Finlay, journalist, art critic, and broadcaster, steps into the monthly t Mdi lion of 'North of the Tweed' which has been, so competently built by George Blake. These soliloquies on Scottish affairs might be said to have touched the peak of good 'regional broadcasting', and those who have heard Finlay at the microphone will probably agree that he is just the man to maintain a standard of Scottish interest that is also acceptable ' South of the Tweed .
Finlay was born in New Zealand of Scottish parents, and was educated at Edinburgh. He has contributed to numerous periodicals and journals, writing chiefly on Scottish art, the importance of form and design in industry, and - his favourite subject - the infinite possibilities of museums in popular education.
