One of a series of programmes produced by Grampian Television, this contains an excerpt from the film Movieman by the late Ron Miller, FACI, about the historical development of the cinema and featuring famous cinema manager Jimmy Nairn (complete film available as lib. no: FT 5). After a discussion and a commercial break - without any commercials! - there is a screening and discussion of a film discovered by a viewer in some rubbish (!), which was thought to have been shot circa 1912, and includes footage of Slains Castle and Couden Bay Hotel, believed to have been filmed by the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Donated by the makers.


Total running time 25 min.
