Scottish Screen Archive

Some amazing videos over at the Scottish Screen Archive. Loads of educational/public information films to browse through -- my favorites all seem to be about the textile industry. Don't miss Teenage Money, Cashmere is Scottish, The Climbers, and Beautiful Drima, which is about a new kind of sewing thread (and has great music). There are a lot of "new town" documentaries as well; Cumbernauld, Town for Tomorrow looks like a nice place to settle down.


  1. As a Caledonian resident I really appreciate this. Nice music by Johnny Scott on Cumbernauld. Shame the town didn't quite turn out as planned :)
    Thanks again!

  2. I was wondering if you had seen this site. Thanks again for "Requiem..."
