3 Minute Wonder: The Estate

Monday, July 13 on 4

From the outside, the Sighthill Estate in North Glasgow is better known for crime, drugs and poverty than for its sense of community. Built in the 1960s, Sighthill was once home to 7,500 people. As the area is primed for demolition, the community is slowly disappearing. In a 16-part series, filmed over one year, 3 Minute Wonder presents an intimate and insightful portrait of a high-rise community being cleared for demolition and regeneration. These are the stories of The Estate . In the first film Zimbabwean asylum-seeker Sifiso describes building a home for her family on the notorious estate.
