Many people still remember the early Channel 4 film The Huts that was made about Wester Hailes in 1984. The film focused on the efforts of local residents working together to improve life locally through the building and development of the huts as community facilities. It showed how the huts impacted on the lives of local individuals and groups, creating change and improving the life of the wider community.We posted an article about the film in February 2011.
Skyline Productions have now kindly agreed for excerpts of the film to be made available online thanks to the efforts of Wayne Cuthbert who contacted the company. We’ve uploaded the excerpts to our Facebook page From There To Here: A Wester Hailes Story.
