Event Details

Television has a unique role in putting Scotland on screen: it can span multiple genres and forms - from the natural history documentary, factual or educational series to scripted drama and comedy. And equally importantly, television can make it all totally accessible by appearing on the box in the corner of the living room.

This one-day conference event is part of the wider Year of Natural Scotland touring film project, and aims to shine a light on the small screen - past, present and future. Invited guests come from broadcasting, programme making, science and education. It is a chance to hear how television has - and can - promote and educate people about Scotland's rich natural heritage, landscapes and biodiversity. How much of how we view Scotland is shaped by the images we see on screen? And how do Scotland’s natural resources inspire programme makers and broadcasters? This event hopes to suggest some answers.

Natural Scotland on Screen

As part of the 2013 Year of Natural Scotland, this season of screenings showcases how feature films, documentaries and television have represented, imagined and re-imagined Scotland’s natural landscapes, wildlife and biodiversity. How much of how we view Scotland is shaped by the images we see on screen? And how do Scotland’s natural resources inspire filmmakers? These screenings suggest some answers.

Natural Scotland on Screen is a partnership project between Creative Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage.
