Buchanie editor Morag Kuc experienced a blast from the past last week while checking her Facebook newsfeed.

She had been tagged by a friend asking if she was featured in a YouTube video of Songs of Praise filmed in Peterhead.

A quick check confirmed that the footage did indeed feature our editor as she sung her heart out along with her fellow Peterhead Academy choir members!

Morag said: “I really didn’t expect my singing talents to find their way onto social media, but it was really fun to see the video and many, many well-known faces, some of whom are sadly no longer with us.

“The video was filmed in the Old Parish Church back in the 1980s, although I can’t recall exactly which year it was.

“However, I do remember there was a fair buzz of excitement around the town when it was announced that Songs of Praise was coming.

“We practised for weeks beforehand and on the night I remember all the girls in the choir worrying about getting their make-up right for telvision.

“Ah...the memories!”.

If any of our readers can enlighten us as to which year it was - and name a few well-kent faces - we'd love to hear from you.
