Last week the BBC contacted PLHS to say that James Armstrong and Kyle Davidson , both S2, had been successful with their entry into the BBC Competition : ‘Your Landscape Story : Our Crew ! ‘
In 300 words the boys had to tell their Landscape Story. Their story focuses on the landsape and history of this area. It looks at why, and where , the Battle of Prestonpans took place . The boys said that they would like to produce a film which would be a documentary / drama about the Battle – its effect on Prestonpans in 1745 and how it affects Prestonpans today.
The boys stated that they could get their information, for the film ,from a variety of sources – from archaeologists from Glasgow University who were involved in a dig at the battle site last year; from the Prestonpans re- enactment society, from visiting Prestongrange Museum ….. all of these must have impressed the judges !
So, on Tuesday 15th June, a camera crew and technicians from the BBC will come into PLHS to work with James , Kyle and 14 other lucky S1/2 pupils to help them produce their film .
We can’t wait to see it on the BBC ! Well done James and Kyle !
