LEGACY SHOW: Celebrating your Scot-Irish heritage with Homecoming Scotland


Aired on January 1, 2010

This broadcast is a favorite legacy show that we produced under our old name Travel’n On and before re-branding as WORLD FOOTPRINTS. David Gordon joins us from Ireland to talk about “Homecoming Scotland“, a festival that celebrates people from around the world who have Scot-Irish heritage.

Scotland returns 2009 is a yearlong celebration of a history that has changed the world, a thriving present, and an enthralling future. The year-long Homecoming Scotland 2009 schedule of events around the nation honours Robert Burns’ birth 250 years ago. Additionally, we’re honouring some of Scotland‘s greatest contributions to the world, including golf, whisky, brilliant brains, innovations, and Scotland’s rich cultural and historical history.

Participate in Homecoming Scotland, a year-long celebration of our country’s fascinating past and promising future, to show your love for it. Robert Burns, Scotland’s greatest poet, celebrated his 250th birthday in 2009, making it the perfect time for what looks to be an incredibly inspirational schedule of events and activities. The celebrations will highlight the finest of Scotland’s rich and diverse culture, produce, and more, promoting Scotland as the contemporary, self-assured, and dynamic nation it is today and inspiring tourists from across the world to visit.
