Yer Old Faither

Available on DocPlay
Glaswegian John Croall left Scotland for Australia in 1970, settling with his family in Whyalla and becoming the local obstetrician. Hundreds of children came into the world because of his 'magic hands'. His daughter Heather directs this affectionate documentary, blending home movies, family letters and animated sequences to capture a portrait of a man who was forward thinking in his concerns for climate change and leaving the planet a better place than he found it.
