Lucidity Media was commissioned to produce four audio dramas to conjure up the story of one of Scotland’s most important 18th century manufacturers - Wilsontown Ironworks - now a rural location with few visible remains of its industrial past. The challenge was how to give visitors a hint of the site’s past when there is now so little to see.

We asked author Beatrice Collin to produce four scripts based on extensive historical research and former BBC producer Liz Leonard to bring the scripts to life - casting professional actors and producing the four recordings in a sound studio.

After our final mix, the files were posted online for users to listen to or download for use at Wilsontown.
