Roxanne Sorooshian: Signing off after 30 years of discovery in journalism

LAST week marked 30 years since the famous RRS Discovery made her final journey on the River Tay to put Dundee on the modern map.

On September 26, 1992, thousands of people lined the route to welcome home the venerable vessel.

The ship was purpose-built in the city to take explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott to the Antarctic in the early 1900s.

Its return to Dundee marked the beginning of the city’s regeneration.

A new £6 million visitor centre was built and in the years that followed there were more developments on the waterfront, including the V&A.
