BBC news report on 1911 Scots census

The BBC has been covering the Scottish census launch today. Radio Scotland featured it in its Good Morning Scotland show this morning, which can be heard again via the iPlayer for the next few days (UK only) at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00zt6y3/Good_Morning_Scotland_05_04_2011/ - the feature is one hour and fourteen minutes in from the top. Some dodgy Ulsterman pops up half way through the proceedings to confuse the audience, try to ignore him and instead listen out for the Registrar General Duncan MacNiven say the word "manure" with relish - possibly as rare as a census release itself! lol

BBC television news has also covered the above in a shorter form at lunchtime and undoubtedly will show it again this evening on Reporting Scotland at 6.30pm. The lunchtime piece can be found on the Beeb's news website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-12971075
