Glasgow's water supply - This film gives a short history of Glasgow, focusing on the effects of industry and population growth. It then describes the construction of the 26 mile aqueduct that carries water from Loch Katrine, supplying Glasgow with 70% of its water supply. The film portrays the scale and precision of this remarkable feat of Victorian engineering, opened by Queen Victoria in 1859.

The River Clyde was quite high after thunderous and sustained rain. Not the highest I've seen it though, when it was covering the footpaths under the bridges and was alarmingly close to the top of the containing walls. The water isn't usually quite as muddy looking as that. The river runs through Glasgow city centre and has loads of fantastic architectural features.
THE first mile of an underground tunnel which will lead to improved river water quality and tackle flooding has been completed. Shieldhall Tunnel, which is more than five times as long as the Clyde Tunnel and big enough to fit a double-decker bus inside, will run for more than three miles from Craigton to Queen’s Park, under Bellahouston and Pollok parks. Through its creation, river water quality will increase and flooding in parts of the city will be tackled. A team of engineers are currently working on the £100m project alongside a Tunnel Boring Machine, named Daisy the Driller by a local schoolboy. The drill travels at speeds of about 30 metres per day, excavating earth and stone and installing the lining of the tunnel in the form of massive concrete rings. The first mile of the tu...

As part of a three year project for the Forestry Commission Scotland to help publicise the great Trossachs National Parks, we were commissioned to produce a film on one of Scotland’s greatest engineering achievements - Glasgow’s water supply pipeline. A twenty six mile pipeline runs from the shores of Loch Katrine to the city centre, enabling its residents to have clean and plentiful water. This marvel was considered to be one of Glasgow’s best kept secrets, but we decided it was worth shouting about! We enlisted the help of actor James Mckenzie, best known for his children’s TV character Raven to present the film and interview the people key to maintaining and delivering supply. Using a helicopter equipped with a gyro stabillisation system, we were able to follow the pipeline as it snake...
