Time Capsule Hilltown 2002

On our birthday weekend we take a look back at Time Capsule when it visited the Hilltown in episode 7 in 2002. It’s back to the news tomorrow so it’s only a little break to remind ourselves why picture in picture was invented. This was also used as an anti piracy device back then because the interviews were original content mixed with general views of the area. The Time Capsule series eventually ran to 30 episodes filmed all over the east of Scotland. We’ve released this as the episode was sold with interviews with Patricia Tait (Dundee Pie Shop – now changed hands), William Hastie (E Butchart Jewellers – last year celebrated 100 years in business on the Hilltown) – Betty Anderson (Hilltown Pet Shop – now closed) – Helen Stark (Behr’s Footwear) – Alec Doig (Sutherlands – now closed) – Frank Yorke (Yorkes Butchers) – Charles B Clark (McLeods Shoe Repairs)
