Showland: Behind The Scenes At The Fair

An inside look at Scotland's fairs, which are run by the Showmen's Guild - this year celebrating its 125th anniversary. Showman and expert Mitchell Miller reveals the reality of life in the fairs, the ups and downs, the challenges and the thrills.

With archive film from every decade since 1908, including never-before-seen home movies, and following families on their summer to winter runs, this is a look behind the bright lights at a unique and threatened way of life.
