Superb compilation of Scottish archive film prepared ahead of 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b047lx52 - due for UK broadcast on BBC4 Sun 13 Jul 2014 21:00 and Thu 17 Jul 2014 01:00, followed by DVD release.

(view from Wideford Hill on Orkney looking SE to Scapa Bay - Kirkwall is off screen to left - I was there last week) - King Creosote's music usually leaves me lukewarm, but this soundtrack is very effective and possibly his best stuff yet.

As usual with these compilations it recycles footage from a huge selection of sources, some of which may already be entries here (eg Life In The Orkneys), but is very well selected and mixed together and full of references - I'm now on my 4th viewing and still finding stuff. Lots of boats, trains, trams, people making things (ships, stockings, rifles, linoleum, whisky, mint humbugs and whatever else), people enjoying themselves (seaside, holidays, funfairs), people working hard (farming, peat-cutting, fishing, schools), people protesting and so on. No Scottish cliches, a good sense of humour, and lots of insights - I began to realise how much up until the 50s the home was just a place where people only really ate and slept - fun and entertainment were things done outside with your friends in pubs and dances and picnics and stupid beach competitions. Now the home is the hub of everything. Every so often something really poignant gets thrown in (wars, deserted crofts, emigrations) to jolt the mood back - one of the most powerful was a blink-and-miss-it moment in a sequence of kids running round and splashing on beaches on Arran:

with a polio girl unable to join in.

Very highly recommended for anyone interested in Scotland, and worth watching more than once.

- probably Glasgow as I guess t-lights would be very rare anywhere else at the time

Light bulb factory - no clues where or when, but colour film so 1960s+ likely:
