Local media production company ‘Page Break Media’ has partnered with JJR Macleod Memorial Statue Society to produce a short documentary about the co-discoverer of insulin, who was airbrushed out of history – John James Rickard Macleod.

A bronze memorial statue will be unveiled in Aberdeen this October, marking the 100-year anniversary of JJR Macleod's Nobel Prize for the co-discovery of insulin in 1922.

The team at Page Break Media recently travelled down to meet renowned sculptor John McKenna, who shared with us a sneak peek into the making of the statue.

The team witnessed the artistry and dedication that has gone into the designing of the statue and were privileged to be shown original sketches and design artwork, as well as the memorial statue.

The documentary will follow the life of JJR Macleod and provide audiences an insight into the history of insulin, as well as showcasing the memorial statue.

The team at Page Break Media are thrilled to be a part of this project, honouring a true Aberdonian hero.
