Re: DVD of Glasgow East End documentaries from 1982/83

Aye, they disappeared off Vimeo long ago. Someone told me they got copies from a DVD stall in the Barras but that was a few years ago now.

Re: Old Cars etc Spotted

Eeee, that takes me back, mate had a gold 1.6 Ghia on a V-plate, with a brown vinyl roof. Mind you, this was the mid-90s when such things were mostly rusty heaps that people bought for banger money...

Re: Glen Michael

There's very little of Glen Michael out there online - a few random snippets of Cartoon Cavalcade, mainly a Christmas Special near the end of its run, as I recall. Was at a union conference a few years back (the union I rep for also covers broadcasting) and got chatting to an STV rep - this was shor...

Re: Hospitals & Asylums

Sanctuary quietly offered tours to 200 people on Sunday morning there - not as part of the official Doors Open Day weekend, I only spotted it in an Evening Times article in which you had to email to request a time. Was just a short wander round, but interesting nonetheless. They said they were quite...

Re: Project Updates: St Peter's Seminary

I'm going at the end of the week (twice, oddly enough!). Be a shame not to have such free access and loads of people when you usually got the place to yourself (or with a few other kindred spirits/graffiti artists/porn film makes!) but I guess it would have been an H&S/insurance nightmare withou...
