The Scottish Mountaineerer, Alastair Borthwick

August 8, 2019 - Author: steph

Alastair was born in 1913 in Rutherglen, Scotland. When he was 16, the iconic Scottish writer Allistair Borthwick dropped out of high school and began work as an editor and journalist for The Glasgow Herald. There he became in charge of editing and writing for the Women’s Page, Children’s Page, Film Reviews, Readers’ Letters, and the crossword puzzle. In 1935 he moved to London to write for The Daily Mirror for a year, then moved back to Glasgow and began working for BBC. After discovering that Alastair has experience in and a deep love for mountaineering, he had him develop a series of shows about it. 

He would remain with them until the 60s. In 1939 he used a series of his earlier newspaper articles about the growing mountaineering movement of the Glasgow populace as the basis for a novel called “Always a Little Further.” It is considered one of the greatest classics of the 20th century. This Scottish mountaineering movement had originally been inspired in the early 30s by the “Wandervogel” movement in a German state. Borthwicks articles and book further inspired it and encouraged its continued growth. 

It was also encouraged because the 1930s Glasgow area saw mass layoffs at the shipyards, which meant that lots of people had lots of free time on their hands. In time these masses of unemployed mountaineers formed informal hiking clubs. All of this was a revolutionary thing because while mountaineering had been a recognized pastime for many years prior to this point, it was always considered the domain of the rich and famous. In 1940 two huge events happened for Alastair Borthwick: 1) He got married to Anne Corbett and 2) a few months after marriage he joined Scotland in World War II. 

In 2003, Anne died. Alastair died the same year just a few months later.

Alastair Borthwick And His Career As A Radio Broadcaster

April 16, 2019 - Author: steph

Alastair Borthwick was born in Tyroon, Ayrshire and later moved on to Glasgow at a young age of eleven. After high school, he joined the Evening Times as a copy-taker and would later graduate to work for the Glasgow Weekly Herald. He had to work under a variety of departments as there was not enough workforce at that time. There were only five official employees by then. Through the newspaper open-air page, Alastair discovered mountaineering. He said it had turned to be a common thing for leisure for just about everyone in Scotland at that time as most of the people were jobless.

In the year 1935, he went to work for the Daily Mirror in London but left soon enough to running a press club and then later joined the BBC. He loved radio broadcasting and finally made a career out of it. During one of his interviews at the BBC, the producers fell in love with his story and immediately created a 15-minutes talk on the radio, and that was simply Alastair Borthwick’s take off point for his radio broadcasting career. From the previous experience in mountaineering, he talked much about it in his shows and enjoyed lots of compliments and appreciations in his presentations. He stood out as a good speaker, and this earned him more admiration from his producers on the radio. Unlike many other radio presenters, Alastair Borthwick never focused much of his attention on becoming a radio superstar or making a fortune from it and proud. He kept it on the low and as modest, friendly and formal as possible. To him, this was the best he would want from his job, and it was because of this, he broadcasted from the year 1935 to 1995.

Amongst other things Alastair did was running the press club in the year 1938 for their Empire Exhibition. He was supposed to do is a performance from the top of the tower hosting the exhibition during a rainstorm. He was supposed to do all this wearing just a top hat and morning coat. Work for him became even more exciting during the Second World War where Alastair got to see too much action than he would have wished to see.

Alastair Borthwick: Scottish Highland Writer

January 28, 2019 - Author: steph

Alastair Borthwick was well-known for the life that he lived full of adventure and numerous experiences and had the ability that he had for storytelling. It has been said that there are few humans who have ever reached the ability of storytelling that was possessed by Alastair Borthwick. He would write on the human condition both the good and the bad. He was also able to transition into a career as a media personality in both broadcasting and television where he was deemed a natural. Many people have described Alastair Borthwick as a storyteller who was captivating and transcendent. However despite the success that he experienced he was never an individual who was seeking fortune or fame. All that he truly desired was the ability to live a simple life where he would be capable of telling the stories that he wished to tell.

He dropped out of high school at the age of 16 in order to pursue a career working at the local newspaper the Glasgow Herald. It was during his time working at the Glasgow Herald hiking through the mountains and hillsides of the Scottish Highlands that he would spend thinking about beginning his literary career. He was capable of becoming friendly with just about anyone that crossed his path during these adventures through the Highlands.

In the year of 1935, Alastair Borthwick would move to the city of London in England to work at the Daily Mirror. He only worked there for one year before looking for other opportunities. He would eventually find the chance to work at the press club at the Empire Exhibition before he would later go on to join the BBC as a scriptwriter for several of the broadcasting stations programs.

While Alastair Borthwick has left behind a rather impressive legacy he himself was not too concerned with payment status. In fact, he would likely be appalled to look at the way that the world for members and now as he simply considered himself a journeyman writer. Someone who is capable of doing an all right job on most subjects. However, it does seem as if he has outdone himself more than he was aware of.
