  • Nedumentary (vimeo) - I first became intrigued by the world of the ned during the late 90s after frequent visits to the ned mecca better known as Glasgow.

Historical Documentary





  • Let Glasgow Flourish - This silent film is called Let Glasgow Flourish and includes some film of the campaign to safe council houses within the Merrylee District. It is from about 1951.


  • Glasgow Gets To Work (1935) - Travel back in time to 1935 and learn about Glasgow's transport network with the help of handy intertitles and maps. Steam trains puff through St Enoch’s Station, trams and buses cart crowds of fans to Hampden Park for the Scottish Cup final, and ferries ferry horses and carts across the Clyde.
  • May Day 1937 - Silent film of the May Day Parade through Glasgow in 1937.


  • Municipal Buildings (1922) - Unsurprisingly in a city infamous for its slums, this “Corporation of Glasgow Official Film” highlights their work in rehousing a 1920s population that was bulging at the seams. Unfortunately, the tour of the luxurious marbled City Chambers and the cattle herding at Merklands Cattle Wharf mark an awkward comparison with the coverage of the new housing schemes - a drop in the ocean of what was required.


River Clyde/Shipbuilding



  • KH-4 (1969) (nls) - A strange film about a Glasgow artist (played by a young Bill Forsyth) who uses the city as a source of inspiration. As he wanders the streets, the ongoing demolition process causes a disintegration of his ideas which are subsequently expressed in a depressing canvas. (1960s)
