Good channel this, dedicated to Edinburgh only. STV Edinburgh will broadcast on Freeview channel 23, Sky channel 117 and Virgin channel 159 and will be available to watch live on the STV Player. This looks like a really good channel, they are going over old historical stories, live news and more. Here is the home page: http://edinburgh.stv.tv/ One programme for example is this below
That time the elephants came down Leith Walk…
The eagle-eyed among you might have noticed that this is no ordinary Victorian street scene. The elephants are a bit of a giveaway for starters.
In the 19th century there were hundreds of circuses operating in Britain and Sanger’s was one of those that travelled from town to town. ‘Lord’ George Sanger was the most successful circus owner of Victorian times. He was known for being a smart dresser, instantly recognisable by his top hat and diamond tie pin.
These images are one of the many “then and now” scenes you can explore on Our Town Stories, which brings Edinburgh’s past to life in a unique way. You can fade between “then” and “now” to get some interesting effects like the one below.
