Jim Thorburn and Denis Mochan

Tonight at 9pm on BBC Alba the eagerly anticipated documentary on the life of ex Raith favourite Jim Baxter will be broadcast.

The documentary features many of Jim’s playing colleagues such as Willie Henderson, Pat Crerand and Denis Law.

However there are also notable interviews with his Raith team-mates Jim Thorburn and Denis Mochan, as well as contributions from director Val McDermid who’s father Jim discovered the raw talent at Crossgates Primrose, and from Ally Gourlay.

The documentary also covers Crossgates Primrose, and Raith Rovers were instrumental in arranging this part of the programme.

The hugely enjoyable programme strikes the correct balance with lots of rare footage and is not to be missed.

BBC Alba is available on Freeview (Channel 8), Freesat (110), Virgin Media (161) and Sky (143).
