Members of the 145th Glasgow (Eastwood) Boys Brigade are set for their TV debut after filming a segment for BBC documentary I Belong to Glasgow.

The series follows four celebrities who grew up in the city, including actor Alex Norton — also known as DCI Burke in Taggart, who began his acting career as a member of his local am dram group at Eastwood Parish Church, and was also a member of the BB group.

Bryan Sinclair, of the Eastwood company, told The Extra: “Alex dazzled the boys with his snare drumming skills, learned as a boy in the BB pipe band.”
