The Culbin story - archive films
This wonderful archive film was made in 1955 - just as the vast task of establishing a forest at Culbin was coming to an end. It tells the story of the people of Culbin being driven from the land by advancing sand and then the mammoth effort by the Forestry Commission to establish the forest we see today.
Films are edited by I. Anderson and narrated by J. Urquhart.
