The Clyde - the past:

The River Clyde has always been crucial to the city of Glasgow. It is the reason for the city's position. It stretches around 100 miles from a small stream in Lanarkshire to a wide firth at Greenock. Duncan McCrone, who grew up by the Clyde, tells us about the importance of Clyde shipbuilding to the city when he was young in the 1950s and 60s. With the use of archive film, we show some of the magnificent ships which have been built on the Clyde.
