Run by volunteers, Doric TV is passionate about keeping the northeast Scotland dialect of Doric alive and flourishing. What began as a humble vision to preserve the language via a contemporary approach, has steadily developed to encompass the Doric Future YouTube channel, Doric Future website and now, Doric TV.

The organisation focusses on a wide range of ideas and topics, including interviewing elderly members of the community to capture their life stories, liaising with Aberdeen University to archive videos for the future, highlighting good causes in the north east, interviewing proponents of northeast Scottish culture, and providing videos for Visit Aberdeenshire to help promote the area.

“We use various mediums to reach different age groups, to bring our culture and language to as wide a range of people as we can. Our motto is ‘Preserving the past, informing the future’ and to introduce ordinary people who do extraordinary things, usually with some connection to the Doric language or culture.” Jill McWilliam, Doric TV
