Glasgow applicants wanted for BBC’s Repair Shop

The award-winning BBC One programme Repair Shop features a team of the country’s most skilled craftspeople, who restore items that their owners fear may be beyond saving.

Ricochet Productions, who make the show, have urged Scots to come forward for the new season.

The team are keen to hear from anyone who has a beloved object in need of salvaging, with a particular focus on anyone looking to repair some bagpipes.
