Brian Cox: Dundee University fundraiser, and teacher of Scotch pronunciation

Hollywood star Brian Cox lends Dundee University students a helping hand
Students who raised £2,500 for children's charity Cash for Kids during their annual rag week got a local-born Hollywood acting star to help them hand over their proceeds. 

Dundee University students raised the money for Cash for Kids, which raises thousands of pounds for local children and young people every year. University rector and actor Brian Cox presented the cheque to the charity's assistant manager, Alison Curran.

She said: ''It's really fantastic Dundee University Students' Association can support the charity.
''All the money raised will stay in the Tayside area, helping underprivileged children.
''Brian Cox is a lovely man and very keen to find out what is going on in the Tayside area regarding child poverty.''

The Scotch Pronunciation Guide: Brian Cox Teaches You How To Ask Authentically for 40 Scotches
Some Scotch names are fairly straightforward — Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Laphroaig. Others not so much. I mean, give Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila a try. Well, if you’re a connoisseur struggling to get the pronunciation right, this will serve you well. Esquire has created “The American Man’s Scotch Pronunciation Guide” (though you hardly need to be male to profit from it), which features “esteemed actor and proud Scot” Brian Cox sipping/talking his way through more than 40 brand names.

Catch them all here.
