Bear Story Covered
On Tuesday 1 April, Channel 5 will be screening a film on the events surrounding a performing bear on Benbecula and Wiay (above). The media attention, of 34 years ago, became something of a circus, giving amusement to locals and bemusement to audiences. A detailed account and video may be accessed via the Stornoway Gazette. Suffice to say, it's not a joke for Andy (left) and Hercules were real enough. The view on the television screen will not be as calming as that through the window on Wiay.
