It is heartening to receive feedback on how many of you enjoy looking at the videos of times past. Especially as I know that many were not even born when the games shown were being played! 1991 seems like yesterday to me though. For your 'enjoyment' today is a clip from the final of the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Ladies Curling Championship at Kirkcaldy in 1991.

The game matched Christine Allison and her team of Claire Milne, Mairi Milne and Margaret Richardson against Kirsty Addison, Karen Addison, Joanna Pegg and Tara Brown.

The problem for me is what to show from the game. The original BBC broadcast was thirty minutes or so. The final went to an extra end, so that's what I've uploaded. The YouTube limit is ten minutes, so even one end of a game has had to be cropped a little. And the quality is not 'high definition'! However, I hope it gives you a flavour of the time.

The commentators are Richard Harding and Judy Mackenzie.
