The Scottish Pakistani Association (SPA) was founded in 1982, led by Mr Bashir Maan, CBE. Its aim was to develop communications and friendly relations between the Pakistani community and all other people in Scotland.  The membership is drawn from the Scottish and Pakistani communities in almost equal numbers. Our activities broadly attempt to reflect the cultures of Scottish and Pakistani people.

Since its formation the SPA has been actively engaged in promoting and fostering cultural and social activities, in order to develop a greater understanding at all levels, national and international. During the last decade under the Chair of Dr Rose Mary Harley and latterly under the Chair of Dr Azra Meadows, OBE, the SPA has undertaken a number of activities to enhance community integration and to broaden awareness of the social, cultural and educational issues of Pakistan.

This documentary was commissioned as a part of a research project by the British Council in Pakistan. It traces the journeys of three Pakistan-heritage families, who are now based in the UK. The film invites these families to reflect on the lives they have left behind, their changing relationship with both the UK and Pakistan, and how their experiences are absorbed and interpreted by the next generation of British Pakistanis.
 
The event includes a pre-screening reception and post-screening discussion.  See Journey worth 70 years (23 July2018) flyer, for full details.
