dc.descriptionBiographical interview with Guy Brown who was born in Port William. Guy's father had been the local GP and Guy followed him into the profession and took over the surgery in due course. He talks about how healthcare has changed over the decades, including: pre and post-NHS; payments; transport; impact of immunisation; making up medicines; rising life expectancy; changing healthcare practice; increasing paperwork; the impact of pharmaceutical firms and the changing status of the doctor within the community. Guy also reflects on his childhood in Port William where the school had 4 classes, one of which was given over for evacuees and he shares some memories from World War 2, when his father established the local Home Guard. Guy also talks about Christmas parties at Monreith and his memories of Sir Aymer and Gavin Maxwell. Other subjects covered include: the local dairy farm, Seaview Farm and creamery on the Monreith Road; local mills including the bone mill; harbour life and the changing community in Port William.
