Border Life: Episode One

The first episode of Border Life looks at Hawick's close relationship with horses, with the town traditionally hosting the first ride-out of the Common Ridings.

Now one man wants to make that link more formal by having the Borders town recognised officially as Scotland's horse town.

We have also been looking at the role of the textiles industry and how Borders tweed is taking the world by storm.

Border Life starts its look at Robert the Bruce and the Scottish King's life, and what link he had with southern Scotland.

Fiona Armstrong has been finding out more - watch the first episode now.
