Hello and welcome to the Clyde Auditorium and to Music Nation: A

:00:29.:00:32.

Sporting Fanfare. Tonight, as part of the BBC's Music

:00:32.:00:35.

Nation weekend, we're part of a huge celebration of music that's

:00:35.:00:38.

taking place right across the country, counting down to the

:00:38.:00:40.

cultural extravaganza that runs alongside this summer's Olympic and

:00:40.:00:48.

Paralympic Games. We're going to be enteartained by some of Scotland's

:00:48.:00:52.

inspirational musicians and singers who have come from all over the

:00:52.:00:58.

country to the very, very young to those who would be pushed to do 100

:00:58.:01:03.

meters in ten minutes. That will be you then!

:01:03.:01:06.

It will be an amazing night of music.

:01:06.:01:16.
:01:16.:01:29.

With London 2012, we have over 300 musicians on stage.

:01:29.:01:31.

Performing alongside the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, it's a

:01:32.:01:34.

pleasure to welcome the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland,

:01:34.:01:36.

students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the

:01:36.:01:46.

National Youth Choir of Scotland. We have got the stunning Nicola

:02:01.:02:03.

youngest performers of the night, musicians from Big Noise in

:02:03.:02:13.
:02:13.:02:14.

Stirling. It is the greatest collaboration between music and

:02:14.:02:19.

sport since Chris Hoy in the Olympic Velodrome.

:02:19.:02:24.

Sportsmen and sports women who have dedicated their lives to achieving

:02:24.:02:29.

excellence and they have got the bling to prove it.

:02:29.:02:33.

A wonderful array of sporting stars ajoining us tonight. There is a

:02:33.:02:38.

sporting theme to the music. Oh yeah.

:02:38.:02:48.
:02:48.:02:49.

These things don't happen by accident. It is all planned!

:02:49.:02:51.

We start with John William's Olympic Fanfare and Theme and to

:02:51.:02:54.

lead all our performers, it's my pleasure to welcome our conductor

:02:54.:03:04.
:03:04.:03:04.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 288 seconds

:03:04.:07:53.

What a fantastic start, ladies and gentlemen.

:07:53.:07:58.

That was John Williams Olympic fanfare and theme written for the

:07:58.:08:03.

Los Angeles games in 1984 and led tonight by Daniel Bell. Getting off

:08:03.:08:06.

to a great start and Rory, I'm glad you could join me to present this

:08:06.:08:10.

evening, you are such a big sport and music fan.

:08:10.:08:15.

That's right, well we were going to have Gavin Hastings, but we've only

:08:15.:08:24.

got two hours! LAUGHTER

:08:24.:08:26.

The way I talk that's only about three sentences so I'm afraid

:08:26.:08:29.

that's all we've got time for this evening and... Now, are you looking

:08:29.:08:31.

forward to the Olympics? Hugely, as all of in Glasgow know we are

:08:31.:08:34.

talking about the summer's Games in London being the warm up event for

:08:35.:08:39.

the really big one, the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in

:08:39.:08:49.
:08:49.:08:51.

2014! APPLAUSE

:08:51.:08:53.

I'm old enough to remember when the Commonwealth Games were held in

:08:53.:08:55.

Edinburgh in 1970 when this generation's parents were still in

:08:55.:08:57.

short trousers. Well, someone who is always in

:08:57.:08:59.

short trousers is the first of our featured athletes tonight. If I

:08:59.:09:03.

tell you, it is a miracle he can fit those giant legs into any

:09:03.:09:07.

trousers, I am talking about the great I can Olympic male cyclist of

:09:07.:09:11.

all time. Sir Chris Hoy. Chris is deep in full-time training for the

:09:12.:09:15.

summer where he is hoping to add to his haul of four Olympic golds and

:09:15.:09:21.

one silver. We caught up with him - who am I kidding?

:09:21.:09:27.

We stopped him in training! We asked him what role music played in

:09:27.:09:32.

his success. He was the undisputed king of the

:09:33.:09:40.

velodrome in Beijing four years ago, but Chris Hoy's Olympic Olympic

:09:40.:09:43.

glory started in 2004, when music played a crucial part in bringing

:09:43.:09:48.

home the gold. You get one shot. It is one time

:09:48.:09:52.

trial event and as world champion, I was last man off and the world

:09:52.:09:58.

record had gone two or three times before I was up there. There was an

:09:58.:10:01.

amazing atmosphere and normally I would be listening to the Foo

:10:01.:10:05.

Fighters or The Chemical Brothers, something that fires you up a bit,

:10:05.:10:13.

but I put on Massive Attack, Angle which is a dark, slow track. I

:10:13.:10:18.

remember putting it on and I got goose bumps on me arm listening to

:10:18.:10:21.

t it put me in the right frame of mind for that particular moment and

:10:21.:10:26.

it seemed to work all right back in 2004.

:10:27.:10:36.

COMMENTATOR: Oh Chris Hoy is the Olympic Olympic champion, the

:10:36.:10:37.

Commonwealth champion, the world champion.

:10:37.:10:41.

Until Beijing, no Scott had won three gold medals in one Olympic

:10:41.:10:51.
:10:51.:10:51.

Games which meant we were soon referring to him as Sir Chris Hoy.

:10:51.:10:55.

So never unestimate the power of music. It could inspire Chris Hoy

:10:55.:11:05.
:11:05.:11:14.

to Olympic gold once again this Ladies and gentlemen, Chris Hoy.

:11:14.:11:15.

APPLAUSE So Chris Hoy there with probably

:11:15.:11:17.

the only mention of the Foo Fighters you will hear tonight!

:11:17.:11:20.

Thris is our most -- Chris is our most successful medal winner.

:11:20.:11:26.

Tonight, we won't just be strolling down memory lane, we will be

:11:26.:11:29.

:11:29.:11:32.

and for Scotland. To be that good, you have to start at the age of

:31:38.:31:46.

four! LAUGHTER

:31:46.:31:48.

Well, time to meet another world beating Scot, the first of our true

:31:48.:31:50.

sporting heroes to take to the stage tonight.

:31:50.:31:53.

If I tol you he was the fastest Scot of his generation, you will

:31:53.:31:58.

have a clue. The only Scot who was faster was Jackie Stewart!

:31:58.:32:08.
:32:08.:32:10.

LAUGHTER And he was in a car!

:32:10.:32:12.

LAUGHTER Before we meet him, here is a

:32:12.:32:15.

reminder of the brilliance of the of the sprinting legend that was

:32:15.:32:17.

and is Allan Wells. It is one of the iconic moments in

:32:17.:32:19.

It is one of the iconic moments in the history of Scottish sport.

:32:19.:32:25.

COMMENTATOR: Wells got away well. And possibly one of the loudest.

:32:25.:32:33.

Come on! Allan Wells going for Olympic gold

:32:33.:32:39.

in the Moscow 100 meters, supported every step of the by his wife and

:32:39.:32:49.
:32:49.:32:49.

coach, Margo. It was close. It was too close to call

:32:49.:32:53.

straightaway and a nation held its breath while the outcome was

:32:53.:33:03.

decided. Was Scotland about to have its first 100 meters champion?

:33:03.:33:09.

He did it. He won it! And so on his first appearance at

:33:09.:33:16.

the Olympic stage, Allan took the gold medal and prime position on

:33:16.:33:22.

the podium. The Olympic theme replaced God save the Queen as he

:33:22.:33:27.

was presented with his medal. Of course, it should not be

:33:27.:33:33.

forgotten that Allan Wells came within inches of a gold double

:33:33.:33:38.

taking silver in the 200 meters. How good an athlete was he? Over 30

:33:38.:33:46.

years on, Allan Wells sprint records stand to this day.

:33:46.:33:53.

Ladies and gentlemen, 100 meter gold Olympic medal winner, Allan

:33:53.:34:02.

Wells. APPLAUSE

:34:03.:34:06.

Huge appreciation here. They say behind every successful man is a

:34:06.:34:09.

very supportive woman. We saw that. There was no way you were going to

:34:09.:34:15.

lose that. You would have slept in the car. I would have been chucked

:34:15.:34:24.

out the family. A big big inspare ration -- inspare

:34:24.:34:29.

ration? Margo was very strong and she was doing all the running about.

:34:29.:34:36.

She was doing all the running about? We were very much a team and

:34:36.:34:41.

I think that as you saw, at the end of the day, we were successful and

:34:41.:34:44.

you know... You are not just saying that because she is here tonight?

:34:44.:34:47.

Yeah. Looking back, I don't know how many

:34:47.:34:51.

times you have watched the Moscow run, but what's the feeling you get

:34:51.:34:55.

when you watch it? Well, the thing is, as an athlete

:34:55.:34:58.

you are building up to a major championships and so you are

:34:58.:35:02.

conditioned for it mentally and physically. Obviously, we like

:35:02.:35:05.

winning and I won quite a few things and you know, I was out

:35:05.:35:12.

there to win and, you know, it has been able to keep the, keep relaxed

:35:12.:35:16.

and keep the pressure away from you and use that.

:35:16.:35:21.

You were at the time people were asking you who were you running for

:35:21.:35:27.

you? After the final and the ceremony and so forth, we had the

:35:27.:35:29.

press conference and there was a chap that stood up and he said,

:35:30.:35:39.
:35:40.:35:43.

"You did it for Harold Harold Abrahams." I said if I did it for

:35:43.:35:48.

anyone, I did it for Eric for Eric Liddell.

:35:48.:35:55.

Were you inspired by a book he wrote? I picked up a, it was a

:35:55.:35:59.

second-hand book. It was the first thing I picked up, it was a small,

:35:59.:36:04.

thin book and it was all about Eric Liddell. I was about 15 or 16 at

:36:04.:36:09.

the time and I just thought I'm going to have this book. It was

:36:09.:36:18.

inspirational. Allan, we know you have to run!

:36:18.:36:28.
:36:28.:36:33.

Ladies and gentlemen, Allan Wells. APPLAUSE

:36:33.:36:35.

After hearing about Eric Liddell, there is only one piece of music we

:36:35.:36:41.

can play. It is not Adele, is it? LAUGHTER

:36:41.:36:44.

It is the theme of the movie that told the Games.

:36:44.:36:54.
:36:54.:36:57.

We have rare archive film of Eric Liddell competing in Paris. Ladies

:37:07.:40:30.

:40:30.:40:37.

Chariots of Fire. The proceeds from the royalties

:40:37.:40:47.
:40:47.:40:48.

from that song, of course, going to support the Greek economy!

:40:48.:40:49.

LAUGHTER Tonight is all about celebrating

:40:49.:40:52.

our Olympic Olympic heroes. And if you are in the audience, you could

:40:52.:40:54.

be sitting next to one of them because they are all here this

:41:39.:41:40.

And 1964 silver medal winner swimmer, Bobby McGregor.

:41:40.:41:42.

APPLAUSE That was the first one you remember.

:41:42.:41:45.

That was the first one I remembered was Bobby McGregor.

:41:45.:41:48.

You always wanted to be Bobby's girl.

:41:48.:41:52.

We have nearly 300 performers on stage. It is time we used all of

them or nearly all. Brought together by choirmaster

Greece afloat. Athens, can we have your votes, please?

:47:26.:47:30.

We're coming to the end of the first-half of our concert and we

:47:30.:47:34.

are come to go a piece of music associated with the Olympics.

:47:34.:47:38.

Olympics, wouldn't be the Olympics checkout cheating. This isn't from

:47:38.:47:43.

the summer Games, it is from the winter in Sarajevo.

:47:43.:47:48.

Neither Torvill or Dean were Scottish!

:47:48.:47:58.
:47:58.:48:17.

But neither was Ravel. Tonight we are going to enjoy the

:48:17.:48:27.
:48:27.:48:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 288 seconds

:48:27.:03:41.

Welcome to the second part of Music Nation: A Sporting Fanfare at the

:03:41.:03:47.

Clyde Auditorium. Has anyone not got the Bolero in their head? We

:03:47.:03:53.

are here to celebrate Scottish talent from music and sport and

:03:53.:03:59.

like Donald Trump's hairdresser, pulling the strands together to

:03:59.:04:01.

create a unique and crowning spectacle.

:04:01.:04:07.

We are proud to introduce a piece the BBC has commissioned by one of

:04:07.:04:14.

the foremost come composers, James MacMillan. Please welcome back,

:04:14.:04:24.
:04:24.:04:24.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 288 seconds

:04:24.:07:27.

Stephen Bell. APPLAUSE

:07:27.:07:33.

That piece by James MacMillan. When it comes to London 2012, it is

:07:33.:07:37.

about dedication, determination, will power, stamina and a refusal

:07:37.:07:47.
:07:47.:07:49.

to give us and that's just trying to get the tickets!

:07:49.:07:50.

LAUGHTER Two more of Scotland's sporting

:07:50.:07:52.

heroes, who demonstrated all those characteristics and more are our

:07:52.:07:56.

next special guests. Please welcome, David willk key and Liz McColgan --

:07:56.:08:06.
:08:06.:08:09.

Wilkie and Liz McColgan. APPLAUSE David, Scotland, but you

:08:09.:08:12.

were born in Sri Lanka, is this right? I was and that played a

:08:12.:08:16.

great influence in my swimming career because that's where I

:08:16.:08:19.

learned to swim. I started very, very young.

:08:19.:08:22.

Warmer water? Much warmer than in Edinburgh.

:08:22.:08:26.

I was there. It was warm when I was there.

:08:26.:08:29.

If Rory was powering past you at that point.

:08:29.:08:32.

I remember you very well. You were the guy in lane two!

:08:32.:08:37.

We have heard a lot about dedication and stamina and the will

:08:37.:08:42.

to keep going. You were always lazy in training, weren't you? Sadly, I

:08:42.:08:45.

have to admit that, but the times where that you have to put the hard

:08:45.:08:49.

work in. But when I was a little kid, swimming was not fun. Can you

:08:49.:08:53.

imagine going up and down all the time and when you have come from a

:08:53.:08:57.

country like Sri Lanka and you are stuck in a pool in Edinburgh that

:08:57.:09:02.

was built in 1896, it wasn't conducive... Is it still there?

:09:02.:09:08.

Now we have the wonderful Commonwealth pool. Did you find a

:09:08.:09:12.

lonely thing. You talk about it is not much fun getting up at that

:09:12.:09:16.

time, particularly swimming, that dedication of being on your own all

:09:16.:09:22.

the time? Being at boarding school was harder. Women something an

:09:22.:09:26.

individual sport. And you have to be moat motivated and you have to

:09:26.:09:29.

swim four hours every day and if you can't get the motivation, it is

:09:29.:09:32.

tougher. We talked about the loneliness of

:09:32.:09:36.

the swimming regime. You know about it Liz from long distance running

:09:36.:09:40.

people talk of the loneliness of the long distance runner. Did that

:09:40.:09:45.

ever affect you? No, I have always liked my own company so, you know,

:09:45.:09:48.

I relished the fact that I could get out there and push myself and

:09:48.:09:54.

test myself and I never felt that I sacrificed anything to get to the

:09:54.:09:57.

levels that I was at. You were your own trainer, not at

:09:57.:10:03.

first, but you decided you wanted to to do that.

:10:03.:10:09.

I was coached from 12 to 18 from a guy guy who died of a heart attack

:10:09.:10:15.

whilst out running. I coached myself. I learned the trade as they

:10:15.:10:19.

say so it was really good fun. But it is about what you were doing,

:10:19.:10:21.

it is about that mental preparation? You know, it doesn't

:10:22.:10:25.

matter what you do in life, if you are going to be successful, you

:10:25.:10:28.

know, you have got to be motivated, dedicated and and believe in

:10:28.:10:32.

yourself and I think that kind of fits into whether it is music or

:10:32.:10:37.

sport and I think that anyone that is successful has those traits.

:10:37.:10:41.

And you have to do that if you are a musician as everybody here knows.

:10:41.:10:45.

You have to put in the hours, but not in swimming trunks.

:10:45.:10:49.

You are training your own family. Your own daughter, is she going to

:10:49.:10:55.

be at London in in 2012. My daughter Eilish is one of the

:10:55.:11:00.

top leading distance runners for the 3 K cheeple chase and --

:11:00.:11:05.

steeplechase and she has the opportunity to qualify for the

:11:05.:11:07.

London Olympics. Ladies and gentlemen, two of the

:11:08.:11:17.

greats, David willk key and -- Wilkie and Liz McColgan.

:11:17.:11:20.

APPLAUSE Like many of our sporting heroes, the musicians here tonight

:11:20.:11:25.

are at the top of their game. None more so than BBC Scotland's young

:11:25.:11:30.

traditional musician of the year, 2011, Kristan Harvey who is going

:11:30.:11:34.

to play us a medley of Scottish pieces arranged for this evening.

:11:34.:11:44.
:11:44.:11:44.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 288 seconds

:11:44.:24:18.

Kristan Harvey. Kristan Harvey and Nicola Benedetti.

:24:18.:24:23.

Our final guest is another example. She won three gold medals at the

:24:23.:24:28.

Paralympic Games and hopes to increase her total as thee competes

:24:28.:24:32.

most successful par a ra Olympians. She was born partially sighted, but

:24:55.:25:02.

less than 10% visibility, she has a pilot to steer, but she provides

:25:02.:25:07.

equal power. Aileen had a gold and silver in the bag when she headed

:25:07.:25:12.

off to Beijing four years ago. It is two Olympic golds.

:25:12.:25:17.

Double gold at the Beijing Paralympic Games meant Aileen

:25:17.:25:25.

McGlynn had to get used to being in the spotlight. Her idle and

:25:25.:25:35.

inspiration was Chris Hoy and she is only one behind his haul.

:25:35.:25:39.

Outstanding From Aileen McGlynn and Ellen Hunter and words are

:26:38.:26:43.

win a gold at the 2002 Commonwealth Games inspired me to take up track

:26:48.:26:50.

cycling. You are training a lot at the

:26:50.:26:53.

moment, but you are training with a simulated route and training at

:26:53.:27:01.

home? Part of my training is a lot of session on the bike, on the

:27:01.:27:06.

turbo turbo in the house and I don't have to go out on the road.

:27:06.:27:10.

It simulates the route. I get all the routes.

:27:10.:27:15.

And the potholes? No, I avoid the pot moles.

:27:15.:27:18.

What -- potholes. What keeps you going? I really

:27:18.:27:22.

enjoy the training and I enjoy standing on the podium with a gold

:27:22.:27:29.

medal around my neck! APPLAUSE

:27:29.:27:34.

Well, let's hope you do this summer. Thanks once again to Aileen McGlynn.

:27:34.:27:44.
:27:44.:27:48.

And we have time for one last interview with a sportsman man.

:45:17.:45:21.

Andy Murray however has had high hopes of a special double in double

:45:21.:45:29.

He is a man on an Olympic mission. A first round defeat in the Beijing

:45:29.:45:34.

Games four years ago, means London 2012 gives Andy Murray a big chance

:45:34.:45:38.

to make amends. I look back on that as being one of

:45:38.:45:43.

the best experiences in my career. I was around some of the greatest

:45:43.:45:46.

athletes. Going to the opening ceremony was unbelievable and that

:45:46.:45:51.

was over in Beijing and now that it is on home soil, I think it is

:45:51.:45:55.

going to be great. I'm really looking forward to the tennis. It

:45:55.:45:58.

is at Wimbledon as well so that will make it more special too and

:45:59.:46:05.

the players view it as being huge. It is alongside the Grand Slams now

:46:05.:46:11.

in terms of its prestige and I look forward to playing.

:46:11.:46:15.

Right then, Andy, we have seen you lift plenty of trophies over the

:46:15.:46:19.

years, so what would you prefer next? A Grand Slam title? Or an

:46:19.:46:23.

Olympic gold? I don't know which one would be better. I have never

:46:23.:46:27.

done either, but now the tennis has got big in the Olympics and I'll

:46:27.:46:32.

try and hopefully this year win Wimbledon and the Olympics.

:46:32.:46:42.
:46:42.:46:46.

And we are rooting for him to do both. Andy Murray.

:46:46.:46:47.
