    Hello

    I am Harry Bell’s daughter. I was amazed to discover tonight while grazing online that you have made a film re my Dad’s book, and wonder when it might next be screened, so that I can go and see it? My summer job when I was at High School was proofreading and binding copies of the book, and the b&w photo of the Deil’s Plantin’ was a blast from the past as we used to go there on our bikes from our house!

      Hi Sheila,

      I had to do a double take when I got your email last night. When I set out on this project in 2007 I made numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact your brother about Harry’s book which has fascinated me for years. I completed the website in 2009 which won a BAFTA Scotland award in the Best Interactive category but last year I decided to make both an app and a feature-length film based on the project, which also features the story of Mary Ross, a woman I met whose walks in the city oddly coincided with those of your late father. The app is currently available through the iTunes Store and the film is available through Vimeo. I would love to do a DVD release at some point if I can get any funding.

      Please feel free to contact me again through the email address at the bottom of the home page for this site.

      Thanks for being in touch,
      May
