With the introduction of  Art in Scotland TV, Summerhall TV will further develop ideas to bring the arts and audiences closer together via TV and social media. Focusing on all that Summerhall has to offer we will build longer programmes, film Summerhall’s plays, concerts and panel discussions, expand our literary coverage and devise new ways to represent Summerhall’s museums and archives on TV.
Our Home page screens our most recent films about the visual arts, book launches, theatre and dance performances, film and music drawn from Edinburgh as well as Summerhall. We update our programmes on a weekly basis. Older programmes are moved to the following categories …

Visual Arts, Books, Film, Performance and Music

Under these headings you’ll find our recent films combined with programmes drawn from the Art Show, Art in Scotland, Book Show, Writers’ Stories and Talking Pictures comprising interviews and reviews filmed in galleries, bookshops and festivals across Scotland and later broadcast throughout Europe.

Building and Landscape

These are Summerhall TV’s longer, more discursive films. Here we explore Scotland’s built environment from aesthetic as well as ethical points of view by engaging those living with Scotland’s new and refurbished buildings.


Our Archive provides a warehouse of films associated with the many libraries and collections being developed or located at Summerhall.


On this page we will introduce Summerhall TV projects and outline film and TV courses at Summerhall.
