Tame Time. Stina Wirfelt. 08:10 mins. 2010

Tame Time looks at the area of Dalmarnock, which will be transformed over the next four years to house several of the sporting events and the athletes’ village during the Commonwealth Games in 2014. The fictional story is told from the perspective of a woman who regularly walks her dog in the area, an activity that makes her think about the past, the present and the future.

  3. Keep on your high heels, Margaret. You are a living legend, and some of the Council history will have your name on it. Bless you for your fight. Where are the young ‘uns to help you out? Bless your nerves of steel. It’s another generation now. If only they would stand up for YOUR rights, then they would keep some rights for themselves. Blessings upon you. Stand strong.
