and he is rugby correspondent for ITV Border,
where he presents, edits and produces regular bulletins.
He was producer for the award-winning Scotsman Rugby
Show which won the top prize at the 2014 Scottish
Press Awards in the "Innovation of the Year" category,
while in the same year the "Borders Railway - From Start To
Finish" radio show produced by Stuart was nominated at
the Bauer Media Awards in the "Innovation of the Year"
category. The Six Series TV version of that project took
nearly three years to make and is regarded as the
most comprehensive work on the Borders Railway. The 34
episodes are now included in an 8-disc DVD Box Set.
There's a film, "The Story of the Borders Railway" now
released - his fourth feature-length movie - the others
being a docu-film following St Boswells Rugby Club as

different projects as a media and PR consultant and
video journalist specialising in news, documentaries,
music and sport. His TV and radio production company is

Stuart has launched "Golden Memories" which can
best be described as a cross between "This Is Your Life"
and "Desert Island Discs." It gives ordinary
people the chance to put someone in the spotlight, be
interviewed about their life, and end up with a
television programme on DVD which makes the perfect gift
for loved ones. It brings to life a person's story
talking about key elements of their life, their
favourite music and providing families with a unique
gift which can be handed down to generations after.
