Sighthill documentary series to be screened on Channel 4

THE Glasgow district of Sighthill is the subject of a series of short documentary films, made by a local independent TV production company and to be broadcast on Channel 4.

Sixteen, three-minute episodes of The Estate are to be shown as part of Channel 4’s Three Minute Wonder series. They were made by Clarity Productions.

Says the company: “Filmed over one year, ‘The Estate’ constructs an intimate and revealing portrait of a high-rise community being cleared for demolition and regeneration.”

Its director is Ruth Carslaw and producer is Sarah Tierney. Clarity was set up in Glasgow five years ago by Tierney.

Transmission begins on Monday, at 7.55pm.
