Aspects of Kirkwall: Some Changes

"Changes in appearance and in emphasis in the town of Kirkwall in recent years... Marchers in protest demonstration walk silently to the Islands Council offices, as a group of officials with brief cases arrives (on the day of a Public Inquiry into the refusal of planning permission for test drilling uranium in Orkney). NO URANIUM stickers abound. In the end of the film, the BBC is there in considerable presence, on the Kirk Green in front of the cathedral, to record a programme inviting public comment on the Uranium issue. The traditional curfew bell (the 'eight o'clock bells') and a lullaby accompany their packing up at the end of the evening's work." - Margaret Tait
