The BBC's Clydebuilt documentary about Cutty Sark could not cover all my new evidence about the notorious 1st Mate, Sidney William Smith. I'm planning a series of blog posts to share what I've found and, hopefully, present him as a more rounded and human character than the "bucko mate" of legend.

BBC Scotland's documentary about the Cutty Sark was broadcast nationwide for the first time on 29 May. It is the first programme in the Clydebuilt series which looks at four iconic ships, built on the river Clyde, that helped forge links with countries throughout the world.
