The Glenmorangie Annual Lecture series explores links between contemporary art and archaeology.  The Glenmorangie Research Project’s current archaeological research is focused on Scotland’s earliest silver (AD300–800). Join us for a very different perspective on this precious metal as engraver and silversmith Malcolm Appleby discusses the experimentation that is characteristic of his work and the inspiration behind it.

The press are off on a jolly today and our John Hislop will be there to conduct some interviews. The Borders Railway is now on the point of opening and a press train will run between Edinburgh and Tweedbank this morning to allow us a little preview.

Access to the new route tomorrow will be restricted to Golden Ticket holders but you can keep up to date with what is happening by following the hashtag #MyBordersRailway campaign on the @BordersRailway Twitter account.

On 6 September the new line will open to the public and you can find more information about available services below.

Her Majesty the Queen will conduct the official opening ceremony next Wednesday morning on the day she becomes the longest reigning British monarch, overtaking Queen Victoria in the process.

The Queen will be joined then by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on a historic steam journey from Edinburgh to Tweedbank.

We will bring you more reports on the new service later today.

Here is the timetable with the Tweedbank to Edinburgh services further down the page!
