MEMORIES: The filming of ‘The Lost Tribe’

BBC2 drama “The Lost Tribe” was about a Lithuanian Jew called Moshe Kaydan who fled his homeland in 1885 due to persecution.

He gets himself to a port and uses what money he’s got left on a ticket to America.

But he’s been tricked and they drop him off in Dundee.

True story, apparently, and was written by Moshe’s grandson Jack Ronder, a prolific writer of TV series.

These people pictured in Malcolm Street, Dundee, are Downfield Musical Society folk who were used as extras when they filmed the story.
