3 Minute Wonder - The Estate
Monday, 16th July to Thursday, 6th August 2009
7:55pm to 8pm#
From the outside, the Sighthill Estate in North Glasgow is better known for crime, drugs and poverty than for its sense of community. Built in the 1960s, Sighthill was once home to 7,500 people. As the area is primed for demolition, the community is slowly disappearing.
