    Background: Canadian Prime Minister, Mr. Diefenbaker, is filmed in Edinburgh, Scotland, where he met the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, November 1, 1958.

    Next day he made a 90-minute visit to Kildonan, Sutherland, where his maternal great-grandfather, George Bannerman, was born. He described the visit as a "tremendous experience".

    The Canadian leader saw the site of his great-grandfather's home, where another house now stands. But he could not find his ancestor's gravestone, which is believed to have become overgrown.
