A documentary about a north-east village where people with learning disabilities live and work is to be shown on TV.
The programme, called Village of Dreams, will focus on Newton Dee and will air tonight.
More than 80 adults with learning disabilities, autism and Down’s Syndrome live at the Camphill Community Campus site, which opened in Bieldside in 1960.
There are also a variety of on-site enterprises, such as a toy shop, bakery and metal workshop which the adults work in, with all of the items created sold in the stores and online.
A crew from Hopscotch Films spent a year at the village filming everyday life for the BBC documentary, which encompasses how the residents live and work.
Jake Vollrath, long-term co-worker at Newton Dee, said: “They started filming almost exactly one year ago.
“The film company actually contacted us which was quite nice.
“Someone working there had grown up near to Aberdeen.
“She had come to the cafe and the store when she was younger and kind of had a rough idea of what we were about.
“We were initially a bit nervous and unsure. Because it’s a BBC documentary we didn’t really have editorial control, which is always a scary thing to be involved in, but the possibility was very exciting.”
The crew would pop into the village for around a week at a time filming, and were not on the campus for the whole year.
Jake added: “It’s something that was worth the fear. It is worthwhile doing this because we do want people to know about us.
“We had an internal airing of it for the community which was nice and we are all really happy with it.
“Now I’m feeling pretty happy, we think it’s good.
“It’s an exciting thing, and we feel quite honoured that they wanted to feature us.
“For us, it seems like it’s just everyday life.”
Village of Dreams will air on BBC Two Scotland tonight at 9pm.
