‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ Paisley Special!


MSP George Adam is urging all Paisley Buddies to watch a very special episode of ‘Who do you think you are?’ to be broadcast in October. The show will feature Bee Gees member Robin Gibb who visits Paisley to uncover parts of his ancestry.

Bosses at the BBC have so far been tight lipped and have also ensured a wall of silence from staff at the Museum and Library where Gibb is thought to have visited during the filming of the episode.

Commenting on the programme, George said:

“It’s not yet clear exactly what Robin Gibb will uncover when ‘Who do you think you are?’ airs in October, but I would urge Buddies with an interest in ancestry and of course the music of the Bee Gees to tune in. I would also encourage anyone who wants to explore their roots in more depth to do so and to take advantage of the excellent service provided by the Local Studies Library located within Paisley Central Library.

“We are very fortunate to have a number of people who are involved in the arts who come from Paisley. We already know about Paulo Nutini, David Tennant and Gerry Rafferty, but interestingly, we may also be able to lay claim to a number of musical and theatrical greats through their ancestor.”

‘Who do you think you are?’ broadcasts on Wednesday 5th October at 9pm on BBC1 Scotland.
