Children and Amateur Media in Scotland runs in collaboration with the Scottish Screen Archive (part of the National Library of Scotland). A major aspect of the project is to locate amateur video makers active between 1980-2000 and preserve and store some of the videos made during this period. The academic research team, based at the University of Glasgow, will investigate this video material to gain a unique insight into the lives of Scottish children in the twentieth century.
