Twentieth-Century Scottish Emigration in Three Minutes

Scots' Emigration

In this short animated video a group of elementary school students narrate the Scottish emigration experience. Their video follows two young Scots - plus a stowaway sheep - as they make the journey from Glasgow to Canada. They hit all the highlights discussed in "grown-up" literature on the Scottish Diaspora: push/pull, incomplete knowledge of the destination, unrealistic expectations, stormy Atlantic crossing, and hopes for a better future. Good stuff!
