A Hollywood actor from Fife is to narrate a TV series about the day-to-day operation of Fife Council.

Dougray Scott, from Glenrothes, will narrate the BBC Scotland programme that puts Fife Council under the microscope in a three-part documentary.

Scott describes the council as “The organisation everyone loves to hate.”

The fly-on-the-wall documentary will follow housing and roads staff on their day-to-day tasks.

Steve Grimmond, Fife Council Chief Executive, said: “The film is not only about Fife, it’s about any and all councils.

“With its size, and diverse demographics Fife is the perfect example of the challenges facing all public and council services.

“We agreed to take part in this documentary in the hope that we could give residents a greater insight into the council and help them understand the difficult budget decisions which we are all facing.

“The programmes feature a variety of Council services in action. It looks at the challenges and pressures local councils are facing with greater demand for services and budgets increasingly squeezed.

“The dedication and commitment of our staff, to continue to provide the best service for the people of Fife shines through in every episode of the show.”

The first episode will air on Wednesday, December 7 at 9pm.
