Dr Ian Good and Dr Ealasaid Munro present some of the key findings of their AHRC funded research into the Highlands and Islands Film Guild (1946-1971). This was a travelling cinema funded by local government which sought to bring ‘secular entertainment’ to some of Scotland’s most geographically isolated and pious communities. How did churches respond to the arrival of cinema in rural areas? And how do people express their memories of the resulting cultural tensions?
……
