‘The Clyde made Glasgow – John Fyfe Anderson’

The Clyde made Glasgow, and Glasgow made the Clyde. We used to hear this phrase often, usually in relation to shipbuilding industry along River Clyde.  There are, however, other industrial heritages along the Clyde, such as New Lanark and Blantyre cotton mills.  In this documentary the history of Glasgow is briefly sketched along the Clyde, from the upstream to downstream, and from the 18th century to the 21st century, with John Fyfe Anderson as a guide.
