One of Scotland’s best-known broadcasters is making a series of films to mark Crathes Castle’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Frieda Morrison, a presenter, producer and broadcaster of 25 years experience with BBC Scotland, has been commissioned by the the National Trust for Scotland to showcase the charms of Crathes garden to a global audience.

The online series began this week with the first instalment going online just after Crathes Castle’s big celebrations marking its Diamond Jubilee on June 16.

With the project, Frieda is directing and shooting the films herself. It is a skill that she’s been keen to develop for years and builds on her background as a talented producer and presenter. Working with talented video editor Martin Symons from Banchory, she’ll make six short films showcasing Crathes garden through the next few months.

Since leaving the BBC three years ago, Frieda has been busy with a diverse range of projects and she’s got herself an MSc and an HNC in Garden Design.
