025: Scottish Documentary Podcast - Right Here: Making Time To Fly

This is the third and final episode focusing on our series of films developed for broadcast on BBC Scotland in association with Screen Scotland as part of the Right Here initiative. Right Here explores the rich diversity of Scottish identity through character-driven stories and beautiful imagery, and this episode we’re discussing Lindsay Brown’s 30 minute film, Time to Fly, which is available now on BBC iPlayer. Time to Fly is an emotional documentary about a mother, Sami, navigating through care options for her autistic daughter, April, as she leaves residential school and transitions to adult accommodation. We met up with Sami and Lindsay earlier this year, following a screening of the Right Here films at Glasgow Film Festival. We discussed the development of Time to Fly and how it’s a follow up to Lindsay’s 2016 short, Swan, a film that will be available to watch on our website from the start of July.
