Peter Alliss starts Borders Book Festival events


The 10th Borders Book Festival got under way in Melrose on Thursday.

Those enjoying the festival atmosphere this year include Tom Conti, Joanna Lumley, John Sessions and Neil Oliver.

The man who teed the whole event off was legendary golf broadcaster Peter Alliss.

BBC Scotland's Richard Gordon caught up with him and asked if he was a book festival enthusiast.
