Short documentary about Edinburgh’s old Royal High School

By - Richard - 9th March 2015

Here’s a short documentary we have just produced about the cultural significance of the old Royal High School in Edinburgh. Opened in 1829, it stands as one of the most important buildings in the UK. Plans are afoot to turn it into a new hotel which many residents in Edinburgh are unhappy about.
