    I'm wondering if anybody knows the exact date this series starts up again? According to the IBEW, it's meant to start on 23rd July at 4pm, but no listing appears on the Radio Scotland site.The LivingstonAlive site is a bit vague on dates, so I wonder if anyone has accurate information? Amongst things covered this time round is this year's West Lothian Challenge Contest that was won by the Scottish Co-op (conducted by Alan Ramsay).
