Privileged to have been at the BBC Scotland studios watching live filming of brand new sit-com “Mountain Men”. I went along to support our very own Sharon Rooney fresh from her success as Ray in Channel 4’s My Mad Fat Diary. Not that she needs our support as this girl is going places. Fair knows her way around a bar and that showed in her feisty portrayal of Jules the barmaid.
Mountain Men is described as ‘a hugely energetic studio sitcom’. It is set around the antics of Jimmy and his ragtag family of Mountain Rescue volunteers.
When the naïve and enthusiastic Conor reports for his first day as a volunteer, Jimmy, the shambolic old rescue hand takes it upon himself to teach him the ‘ways of the hills’. When the actual mountain rescuing begins, things go from bad, to worse, to even worse than that.
