Protecting and Promoting the Evolving Maritime Heritage of the Tidal River Clyde

Govan Graving Docks Documentary Film

The Documentary

Following a successful crowd funding campaign early in 2017 we commissioned Govan-based social enterprise Fablevision Studios to produce a documentary about the history and future potential of Govan Graving Docks.

The production team interviewed members of the CDPI team, expert historians, artists, former dock workers and others about the docks and what the site means to them. We hope this short film will inspire you, as it has inspired us and many others, to be optimistic about a bright future for Govan's historic A-listed graving docks.

We would like to thank the production team, Historic Environment Scotland, University of the West of Scotland, Glasgow Science Centre, The Riverside Museum as well as the interviewees and others for their contribution to the film. We especially want to acknowledge those who contributed to the fundraising campaign to produce the film, almost 150 people in total, some of whom are listed below.

Keep up to date with us here, on the blog or social media for further news of the DVD version release and public screening events.
