Leith Primary And Scotland's Whaling Industry2019102220191027 (RS)

Pupils from schools around Scotland delve into their local history and produce their own radio documentary. This week, taking over the microphones are the Primary 5 pupils of Leith Primary School in Edinburgh as they set out to discover more about their community’s links to Scotland’s whaling industry.

The story begins in Leith in 1750 as maritime historian Eric Graham tells of the first whalers to leave for the Arctic to hunt the Greenland whale. But it’s a journey that ends in the south, in the Antarctic, over two hundred years later as the pupils hear the memories first hand from some of the whalers who left Leith bound for South Georgia.
