About Murdoch Rodgers
Murdoch Rodgers is 70 and is a retired television producer and journalist and former Panel Member. He was born in the Gorbals before he moved in the mid-1950s to a new council house (with a bathroom) on the outskirts of the city - Barmulloch. He was the first member of his family to go to university.
During his career in television, he worked for the BBC on a string of award-winning films (BAFTA, Royal Television Society, Foreign Press Association, British Journalism Awards) including investigations into the care industry and historical child abuse. He believes he was fortunate to have worked with some great people who shared his passion for using the medium to expose injustice and the conceit of the powerful.
He has contributed to this project because the one thing that separated him from his childhood peers, with whom he shared so much, was the love and support of his family. A gift he has carried with him throughout his life.
