Nationwide was a national TV current affairs program, like the One show is now. This article was about the Brown & Root/Wimpey (later HiFab) yard at Nigg.

Great to see Gladys. I only knew her much later in the 90's. Is she still living at the library? My brother-in-law worked at Nigg at that time for Bechtel. He and my sister lived in Tain. Good on you, Paul. Comment left on 04 December 2014 at 06:53 by Alex Davidson

I watched Rigs of Nigg on BBC Scotland last night (you can get it on catch-up). Great memories from my childhood holidays. This clip of the Shepherd family was part of it. What are the names of Gladys’ children in the clip? Is one of them a girl called Liz? Comment left on 18 August 2021 by Graeme Scott
