Borders Rugby TV began in 2008 when we started producing TV highlights and reports from rugby games in the South of Scotland. Our aim then, as it is now, is to give as much support and coverage to the Borders Rugby scene as possible at all levels.
BRTV stopped in 2017 with founder Stuart Cameron contracted to produce programmes for Scottish Rugby and build up his production company StuMedia, but the plan was always to return. If it was going to come back it had to be bigger and better than before. With our re-launch BRTV now brings a weekly highlights programme as well as reports and highlights throughout the season at the weekends.
We also have a new service – Borders Rugby Radio – which produces a three hour live rugby programme featuring commentary on a local game as well as bringing score updates and results throughout the afternoon. Borders Rugby Radio also has a Friday night show previewing the next day’s games.
Our social media service is also very active. All our TV and radio programmes are posted on our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts as well as at this website, and any breaking news and score updates will be updated there too.
If you have a story you’d like us to cover then get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org – We have a team of enthusiastic contributors who are passionate about Borders Rugby and they help us to cover the rugby scene in the South of Scotland better than ever before.
We would of course like to thank our main sponsors, Borders Distillery and BE Uniforms/Canterbury as well as all the Borders Clubs who have supported us on this venture.
All Borders Rugby TV coverage will always be free to air for everyone. We want to grow the game and get as many people as possible involved and enjoying what this heartland of rugby offers, and we want to create a buzz so that people will get out on a Saturday afternoon to support their own clubs rather than become armchair viewers, so please help us spread the word by watching and sharing our videos. This helps support what we do.
As well as promoting the clubs and players from the Scottish Borders we aim to help people who want to be involved in media by supporting them and providing them with the tools to do that. We have invested in top broadcast cameras, equipment and technology so if you’re a budding reporter, commentator, camera operator, or just want to help out then we would be delighted to hear from you. Everyone’s efforts to make this project happen are very much appreciated and we hope you enjoy the content which we will be producing regularly. This really is your one-stop shop for everything to do with Borders Rugby at club level.
