Scottish Indentured Servants TV programme

Just had an interesting conversation with a television producer in England about a production she is working on concerning Scottish indentured servants who made their way to Barbados, and their legacy. It's a fascinating story about the how they got there, how they were ostracised by both white slave owners and the slaves themselves following the emancipation of slavery, and is currently in production with some funding from BBC Scotland and TG4, the Irish Gaelic channel.

Not sure when it will air just yet, but will let you know more as and when I get it!
