Inverclyde Now Logo IBM Greenock Documentary Being Shown Today

26 May, 2020 | Local

A DOCUMENTARY featuring the former IBM plant at Spango Valley will be shown on BBC One Scotland today (Tuesday 26 May).

Silicon Glen: From Ships to Microchips is to be broadcast at 8pm.

It should be available on the BBC iPlayer shortly afterwards.

The programme by Glasgow-based TVI Vision features former IBM staff talking about life at the massive Greenock site which employed thousands of people for decades.

TVI Vision previously made The Singer Story: Made in Clydebank and The Town That Thread Built, which told the story of J & P Coats in Paisley.

The last IBM staff at Spango Valley moved to offices at Riverside Business Park, Pottery Street, Greenock in September 2016 and the land was cleared.

A £100million mixed-use development of a large part of the site is being put forward by Greenock businessmen Sandy and James Easdale in partnership with Advance Construction.
