In The Life of Alastair Borthwick

 Undiscovered Scotland takes a look into the life of Alastair Borthwick, a distinguished author, broadcaster, journalist, and war historian. He was born on February 17, 1913 in Rutherglen. Although Borthwick lived out most of his life in Glasgow, he lived briefly in Islay and London. At the age 16, he became a copy taker for the Glasgow Herald. He then went on to become an editor for some of the Herald’s featured pages

During his time as a journalist, Borthwick reflected on the working class of Glasgow and Clydebank. This could be said to be the most enjoyable and memorable times of his career as a journalist. While still working for the Glasgow Herald, Borthwick became involved in the paper’s “Open Air’ page. It was then that he became involved in Glasgow’s beautiful nature scene. In the time he spent mountaineering, he recollected how the working class retreated to the hills of the Highlands on weekends to live carefree lives. Borthwick briefly worked for the Daily Mirror in London, however, the lifestyle did not suit him, so he moved back to Glasgow to work as a radio broadcaster.

Borthwick is highly acclaimed for what is considered to be two of the greatest novels written in history of his field. One of Borthwick’s most notable works, “Always A Little Further,” is a compilation of works he had written during his time working for the Glasgow Herald. Ironically, the publishing of the book was met with resistance by the publisher; however, it was the insistence of director T.S. Eliot that the book be published. Borthwick’s second novel, “Sans Peur” came to life when he was asked to write about the battalion that he was commissioned into during the advent of the Second World War. He reflected on the journey of the battalion as they went through enemy territories. Borthwick was a hero in his own way and is still remembered for his broadcasting talent, depictions of the war, literary works, and his mountaineering memoirs.
