Margaret Miller talks about her uncle David Thompson who was shepherd in the Backhill of the Bush in the early 1930's. The video shows Margaret at home talking to camera. Still images in the video include shots the Thompson family at the Backhill, the simple interior and bleak exterior of the cottage, the burn next to the cottage, trout fishing and the pony loaded with wooden boxes. The video is overlaid onto an old photo of the exterior of the cottage at the backhill.
