About this unique Scottish film archive

This Scottish Heritage website presents a digital film archive of footage which captures the cultural identity of the “ordinary” man and woman’s account of his/her life and work from the 1890s to the 1960s in Scotland.

The clips and our 6 DVDs titles, allow you to connect with, and walk in the footsteps of your Scottish ancestors.

This unique Scottish heritage archive has received the highest academic and educational endorsements.

Carney Heritage Productions invite you to browse the brief Scottish video excerpts from the collection or purchase the DVD from our on-line shop but we would be really keen to have a conversation in relation to how we can make this collection more meaningful to you, whether at a personal, educational or business level.
