The locil community
Fin we look back at our ancestirs they wir folk that didna travil far t get aa the things they nott t exist. Maist o fit they nott was readily available in their ain community. The music came fae the folk that could play an instrument like a moothie, fiddle or melodion. The mate they ate came fae the local fairms, butcher, grocer, n fishmen. They, lang afore the white vans that stravage up n doon oor roads ivery day wee oor deliveries, hid vans come inaboot t their doors. I can mine the grocer, the fishman the butcher and the draper’s vans coming inaboot t oor fairm. It wis an iccasion. Mast o the things that the vans broucht wir things that wir made or groown locally. I nearly forgot anithir delivery that came t oor district that wis the packman. He carried aa his wares in a pack n he carried it on his back. Nearly athing we nott hid that locil brand.
Durin this time o the Coronavirus lockin us aa doon we can see foo the locil is bicummin somethin that is mare important again.

Kint s Dr Doric
My unique 500 hours of archive film about the north easts heritage is now available for everybody to enjoy free of charge during this Lockdown.
Everyone in Lockdown
With everybody having to stay at home for a very long time and we can’t get out and aboot to appreciate everything that Scotland has to offer. A lot of us enjoy going to the places that have exhibits about our past way of life and work. The fascination we have with oor heritage is something that appeals to us all. Our ancestors were extraordinary folk. My award-winning film archive captures aspects of our past which viewers worldwide have found fascinating and interesting to see. So I thought I would open my archive up to everybody, during this lockdown, to pick their favourite clip so I could feature some of that on my You Tube channel for folk to access and see free of charge. All helping folk here in our own area and around the world to pass the time in an entertaining and educational way.
The local community
When we look back at our ancestors they were folk that did not travel far to get the things they required to exist. Most of what they required was readily available in their own community. The music came from the folk that could play an instrument like a moothie, fiddle or melodion. The food they ate came from the local farms, butcher, grocer, and fishmen. They, long before the white vans that stravage up and down our roads every day with our deliveries, had vans come to their farm. I can remember the grocer, the fishman the butcher and the draper’s vans coming to our farm. It wis an occasion. Most of the things that the vans brought were things that were made or grown locally. I nearly forgot another delivery that came to our district that was the packman. He carried all his wares in a pack and he carried it on his back. Nearly everything we required had that local brand.
During this time of the Coronavirus locking us all down we can see how the local is becoming something that is more important again. Local communities are doing more for themselves, they’re looking out for one another. Simplicity and the essentials are the things that get us bye and that really matters. So I can see that connecting with the past becoming stronger as the weeks in lockdown continue.
Fascinated by the past
The things that happened in our own area from the late 1800s always interested me. So for the past 33 years I have been filming on video the stories of life and work in the north east. I have over 500 hours of unique film about how our ancestors lived and worked. Most of the speaking is done in the Doric dialect of our area. All that material is digitised so it is easy for me to make it available to people at this time. Clips from the archive have gone to customers all over the world who are interested in Scottish heritage.
Films that you can relate to
I thought folk, young and auld, now in isolation, or in care homes, with no visitors, might be interested in seeing how they, their ancestors and their grunnies and grandas lived and worked. So I have put some short clips about that past way of life on to my You tube channel.
Ignore the “related Videos” You Tube put in, mine are clearly marked Carney Heritage Productions. There are over 80 minutes of clips there just now and the link to my website where you can see a listing of all my 500 hours of film for folk to look at. The films will take folk back in time and help their wellbeing by giving that vital link with our past and help to wile the time away. The clips will allow you to drift back in time and rekindle precious memories. This for folk away from their family will connect them to their past and give them something special to see and think aboot that relates directly to them.
You own special film request
The short clips I have on just now, and the new ones I will put on are maybe not the clips you would like to see. So go to my website
and you will find a listing of all my footage. If there is something in that list that you would like to see let me know the clip number and name by email
and I will put it on my You tube channel for you and others to watch. I will put, if you like, at the start of the clip that it was requested by you. In that way you can let other folk and your own family know the things that were important to you about the past. So, when you connect with them on Skype, WhatsApp or Facebook you can speak about the past. This will give you, and Scottish folk all over the world, the chance to remember about past happy memories of our rich Scottish heritage and the way it used to be. Hopefully kittle us all up during these difficult times we are all living in just now. Look forrit to getting your request for your special film clip and getting your memories of the past also. Keep safe.
