Lots of people in Leith have been helping the research team for the Radio 4 show ‘Mark Steel’s in town’ this week. Mark’s job is to get inside the history and the character of wherever he goes and make it funny, stand-up style. They are recording on Saturday; it goes out at 6.30pm on Tuesday 21 August and online at www.bbb.co.uk/radio4. There’s also a film version on the BBCtv red button. We have fed them a few good gags, and they’ll have some more of their own. They can’t miss out Trainspotting and Leith’s most famous son… can they? Bound to be good fun. Don’t miss it.
