© www.number98.net - 2014-2017 In 2016, the BBC produced a series of television and radio programmes to commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of the battle of the Somme. I was contacted by Louise Yeoman of Radio Scotland and asked to take part in a short radio piece about James Cooper's involvement. The piece aired on July 1st, 2016, exactly 100 years to the day that the Newfoundlanders went into battle. The BBC created a short video to go along with the piece which you can view on the link below. Additionally, Louise wrote an article about James and the link between Ayr and Newfoundland, click link below to view.
