Peebles // 9 October
How Scotland used the land during the Second World War, featuring the Land Girls…
Made on Our Land: Peebles is a screening of rare films from the archives exploring the rural lives and landscapes of Scotland and the Borders, followed by a panel discussion – or ‘blether’ – specialists in local history and archives about the films being screened and the roots of our strong tradition of rural cinemagoing.
As well as national films including Scotland’s efficient land use during the Second World War, the programme features films documenting rural life in Peebles and the Borders from the 1920s onwards.
On tour from the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish Borders, Made on Our Land is part of the BFI Britain on Film project: making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online. Join curator Shona Thomson as she unearths some celluloid gems from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive. Event duration: 90 mins approx.
