Join one of the leaders and some of the ex-Scouts from the Cullybackey Scout Group as they remember their time in the boy's club from the 1970s. Camping and outdoor activities abound in the amateur footage from their annual scout trips back in an age when outdoor pursuits still reigned before the advent games consoles. This clip appeared in Series 3, Programme 4 of 'Super 8 Stories'.
