Clydeside stories

26 Jan 2010

A recent BBC2 programme featured regeneration stories from Inverclyde, Clydebank and Govan. In the 30 Community groups along the River Clyde tell their stories about what the regeneration of the Clyde means to them. These films all started as L.A.B. (Learn @ BBC Scotland) workshops.

Pupils from Clydebank High School, members of Galgael in Govan and 71/2 John Wood Street Regeneration Centre in Port Glasgow all worked with BBC Scotland's L.A.B. team to make the programme.

The groups brought together the stories, did the interviews and completed the filming.

  • Clydebank High School looked back at their old school and celebrated their new school building.
  • In Govan, Galgael, an inspirational project helping people with addiction problems get back into the working environment, found motivation in rebuilding a sense of community.
  • 71/2 John Wood Street Regeneration Centre had an intergenerational group look at regeneration of Inverclyde from different perspectives.

The result was three different perspectives, three interesting stories, all about one changing river. The programme was broadcast on BBC Two, 7:30pm Sunday 24th January 2010.
