On Thursday 25th August 2016, the Emmy awarded to Alexander Bain was unveiled by Mrs Rhondda Geekie, Leader of East Dunbartonshire Council (EDC) and Dr Ivan Ruddock, President of Kirkintilloch and District Society of Antiquaries in the Auld Kirk Museum, Kirkintilloch. This was in the presence of Provost Una Walker, EDC councillors and staff, press and members of the Society. Prior to the unveiling, the background to the award and the engineering achievements of Alexander Bain were summarised by the principal speakers Councillor Geekie and Dr Ruddock - both talks serving as excellent reminders of the global acknowledgement of the singular innovations of Alexander Bain and his contributions to modern life, i.e. the electric clock, the fax machine and the underlying principles of television. Those present were delighted to learn that the statuette will remain in the Auld Kirk Museum for public display and were reminded that Alexander Bain is buried in the Auld Aisle Cemetery in Kirkintilloch.
