For lots of people Christmas is not a time of joy and celebration but a time of sadness, for people who are alone or in mourning for those they have lost especially in the previous year. However when someone you love dies at Christmas, Christmas Day itself is forever changed.
Over The Lyne favourite and star of BBC Scotland’s Scots Squad Chris Forbes talks about losing his father on Christmas Day 2010 in The Scotsman newspaper.
To everyone feeling blue this Christmas, Over The Lyne sends love, peace and hoping you find laughter.

Billy Connolly was honoured with a knighthood this week. For Scots, Billy is universally adored. OTL grew up listening to Billy Connolly. OTL remembers parents secretly laughing (despite their official disapproval of his swearing).
When anyone asks OTL about comedy heroes, Billy is always top of the list. The thing OTL loves the most about Billy is his sense of fun. As much as dark comedy, political comedy and satire are important, Comedy should be fun and Billy does fun in abundance. The twinkle in his eye, his cheeky delivery and the enthusiasm he uses to bring his stories to life are without equal. OTL aspires to bring a fraction of the joy and happiness, Billy has brought to the world.
Below are some of Billy’s greatest words of wisdom.
