Old Wigtown jail seeks book festival captive audience

The 13th annual Wigtown Book Festival is under way in the Dumfries and Galloway town, running until 2 October.

Among the attractions this year will be Wigtown Jail - which will open to the public for the first time in more than 100 years to host a theatre piece created specially for the festival.

BBC Scotland's Willie Johnston went along to hear more from the unusual venue.
