Still Sounds: The Great War is a 40-minute documentary. It is about a group of Glaswegian soldiers and their memories of serving in the Great War as recalled by their children and grandchildren. The video consists of interviews to camera with illustrations and song. It was shown in the Autumn of 2014 at the Burrell collection in Glasgow where Margaret complemented the film with a printed fabric hanging adjacent to the screening venue.
Still Sounds: The Great War is the 2nd instalment of Margaret's wider Still Sounds project charting the social history of the school and local community at home, work and war during the last century.
The video also featured on STV National Evening News on 28 August 2014. In addition, it formed part of an interview with Margaret on 8 September 2014 on STV Glasgow.

Still Sounds began at Scotland Street School in 2013, with this exhibition of the artist's site specific sound and print installations at the Museum featuring interviews with former pupils who spoke of their school days, family life and working in shipping industries and docks. The Stairwell Installation which was part of the exhibition continues to play at the Museum.
