When Clare Grogan Met John Gordon Sinclair

I smiled all the way through this Artworks Scotland programme last night, in which the two Gregory's Girl leads return to the school where the seminal 1980s coming-of-age comedy was filmed, Abronhill High in Cumbernauld (a school which, shamefully, is now earmarked for closure), to reminisce about their thirty-year careers in showbiz.

Both turned 50 this year and both are now published authors - Clare writing fiction for young girls in Tallulah & The Teenstars and John Gordon/Gordon John having recently had his debut crime thriller, Seventy Times Seven, published to rave reviews. No, I never saw that one coming either. Fair play though!

Anyway, if, like me, you're nuts about everything Gregory's Girl-related, you can watch the whole thing here (UK readers only again, alas):

It was very good Kippers like you I smiled all the through. Need to watch Gregory's Girl again

Me too! Funnily enough, I'd just been re-watching Comfort & Joy a few hours before that programme went out, and lo & behold a clip of it appears in this.
