The Technical Team
Many of the tapes from St Georges Tron church relied on technology installed by Ian MacDougal. Ian had spent much of his early Christian Life at Finlay Memorial Church, previously called Finlay memorial Tabernacle. He had been involved in the beginnings of Gospel Radio Fellowship still existant as GRF Radio. He was very involved in the building of the Hospital radio Network in Glasgow and in 1974 when I met him, began broadcasting the Tron Morning Service over the Hospital Radio Network. Ian was trained and spent his working life with BBC Scotland.
The recordings at Holyrood Abbey Church were masterminded by David Stay who was an engineer at Ferranti's.
The William Still tapes were recorded by a person or persons not known to me but we are grateful for their contribution
After Bruce's death in 2008 the collection was removed from Broughty Ferry by the Revd Harry Mealya and the Revd Martin Allen. They asked me to put this site together so that Bruce's ministry would continue
The digitsation work is being done by Phil Critchley. Phil is a recently retired broadcast systems engineer who has worked in studios and with high power transmitters. He has worked with several Christian broadcasting agencies. When not processing audio cassettes for 'Tapes from Scotland' he is studying for a degree in Information Technology and Computing. Phil and his wife Brenda are members of the New Life Church in Retford, Nottinghamshire. They have two grown-up children and three grandchildren.
Stephen Carter has put this site together. I joined the BBC in 1975 partly at the inspiration of Ian McDougal and have been recording Christian ministry audio and video since. I continue to record the Crieff fellowship conferences and other jobs that come my way.
I want to express my thanks to all the people who contributed to this project over the years: The recordists who faithfully taped the services week after week, Ian who did so much to make sure that the technology was right and not least to Phil who has spent the last months transferring the 7000 messages from Cassette to Internet.
I am pleased we have been able to continue Bruce's ministry this way and hope that you will be blessed by it.
