The script collection from 95 episodes of the hit show, as well as a treasure trove of items – including books, press clippings, awards and rare photos – were donated to Glasgow Caledonian University by actress Blythe Duff in 2018.
Blythe, who played Jackie Reed on the popular detective show, is an Honorary Alumnus and Cultural Fellow of GCU, which is looking for a PhD candidate to look into the archives as part of a three-year scholarship.
The successful candidate will study the archives with a view to gaining a better understanding of the history of Scottish television drama production and screenwriting, and the wider history of Scottish television and theatre, from the perspective of an actress breaking into a male-dominated industry. .
Professor John Cooke, of Glasgow Caledonian’s Department of Media and Journalism, said: “It’s a really important cultural archive. Blyth has preserved everything throughout her long and successful acting career.
The archive gives us a new window into not only the history of Taggart and Scottish television drama but wider Scottish culture, including tartan noir.
“We are pleased to offer the right student the opportunity to investigate this complete, previously undiscovered archive.”
Applicants for the fully-funded scholarship, which is scheduled to begin in the fall, are required to submit a detailed research proposal before the closing date of April 21st.
