2009 has been a busy year for both filming and editing. There’s still plenty more to do – especially editing – but the rough shape of the eventual resource bank (due at the end of 2010) is now coming into focus. Under the broad environmental theme the three subcategories look like being the following:
3. Enterprise and Innovation
The Generations work is largely filmed, and will include coverage of the Children’s Parliament in Barra and Benbecula, crofting and boatbuilding skills development for teenagers on Uist, lifelong learning at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on Skye, and a family day out at the Grimsay Boat Day.
Under the Outdoors category will come a range of traditional sustainable and crofting practices (such as how to make lazy beds or catch razor fish) as well as leisure activities that are more recent additions to island life, such as surfing or windsurfing.
Finally, in the Enterprise and Innovation section there will be a focus on community, social, and private enterprises that develop or exploit the natural or cultural heritage. Some filming has already been done, for example with Seatrek in Uig and St Kilda, and Tobar an Dualchais in Lochboisdale, and plans laid for including Am Pàipear in Balivanich, and Seallam in Northton. This is the section in which most work remains to be done, and the door is still open for other suggestions to be made. Just add a comment below…
