An Aberdeen schoolboy is set to appear in the final of a BBC Shakespeare performance competition on television this weekend.

Neil Foster, 16, of Cults, and a pupil at Lathallan School in Johnshaven, will feature in Off by Heart.

Schools across the UK had nominated hundreds of students to represent them at the regional heats, and Neil became one of finalists.

The Off by Heart documentary is on BBC2 at 21:00 on Saturday.

It is part of the BBC's Shakespeare Unlocked season.

Each of the finalists will deliver one speech, then three will go forward to deliver 'To be or not to be', before the winner is declared.
