NEW FILM AND TV talent will benefit from a production scheme launched by Scottish Screen, the Scottish Media Group and the SAC. The New Found Land project will see six scripts turned into half hour television dramas, with a not-to-be- sneezed-at budget of £45,000 each. Shot on the digital format, the dramas will subsequently be broadcast on Scottish and Grampian and, it’s hoped, shown at film festivals at home and abroad. For more details of how to enter your script, contact Scottish Screen Production and Development on 0141 3021752.

WANNABE ON TV? Thought that might get your attention; but if not, here's another incentive - two weeks basking in the Spanish sun, free of charge.

GLASGOW BECOMES CENTRE of the cyberspace universe this month when the inaugural interactive City conference comes to town. Organised by entrepreneur and agent provocateur Anthony Wilson and his business partner, former beauty queen Yvette Livesey, the event explores the commercial implications of electronic communication. The pair formerly collaborated on the hugely successful music biz seminar, In The City. 'The internet is not just a passing fad,’ said the former

Factory Records guru. 'It will change completely the way we all do business. It's already revolutionising the music industry and every other aspect of leisure business.’ A full programme of events can be found at

STAFF AT THE LIST are celebrating the capture of a prestigious award, The Royal Bank of Scotland's Magazine Sales Team Of The Year. The team triumphed in the category supervised by business/ media publication The Drum who commissioned Market Research Scotland to survey 65 of the country's biggest advertising spenders. They were awarded points for innovation, professionalism and helpfulness, and promise not to let the gong go to their heads.

TOONSPEAK, NORTH GLASGOW’S theatre company for young people, conclude a successful tour of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple Of Innishmaan with dates at Adelaide's Theatre (13 & 14 May, 7pm) and Balgrayhill Community Hall (15 May, 7.30pm). The show is only the latest production in the company's twelve year history, during which time they've given invaluable experience of creating and performing theatre to young people between the ages of 14 and 25. It's a testament to their collective sense of adventure that they should be the first company in Scotland to tour McDonagh’s story of a young Irish boy and his desire to star in a Hollywood movie shooting near his hometown.
