Alistair Moffat and James F. Wilson

Alistair Moffat was born and bred in the Scottish Borders. A former Director of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Director of Programmes at Scottish Television, he now runs the burgeoning Borders Book Festival as well as a production company based near Selkirk. He has written several books published by Birlinn.

Dr James F. Wilson is a population geneticist. His DPhil is from the University of Oxford where his initial studies with Professor David Goldstein led to the identification of the first genetic signatures of Norse Viking ancestry in the British Isles. This led to the BBC series ‘Blood of the Vikings’, which traced the legacy of the Vikings in the British Isles through a genetics survey. A keen genealogist, Jim is a native of Orkney but also has roots in Shetland.
