"We will also be looking to film a couple of short interviews with some Kirkcaldy experts to get an insight into what makes the town tick and what events visitors can expect to enjoy in the town throughout the year.

“As well as this, we will also be looking to chat to a couple of general Fife enthusiasts who can tell us about all the wonderful things the county has to offer.”

Sam said that the production team are also looking for places and businesses to visit while in Kirkcaldy and has urged locals to get in touch.

“We will also filming extensively throughout Kirkcaldy when we visit so it would be great to know which buildings, businesses and areas show off the town in the best light so we can make sure we get lots of shots of them,” he said.

"We would also like our contributors to drop into a some kind of local independent eatery throughout the day to pick up a snack (coffee, ice cream, sweets, sandwiches etc.) so any suggestions for that would be welcome. Always happy to hear great lunch options too!

“We will be filming in Kirkcaldy for one day only on Tuesday, April 5, so please only put yourself forward for a chat if you are available then. We will need no longer than 15 minutes of your time.”
