This Burns Night, GFT is bringing back one of the most important statements on what it means to live in a modern Scotland. Capitalising on the remarkably popular success of playwright John McGrath’s touring production of the same name, this 1974 television film surveys two centuries of Scottish history from the Battle of Culloden to the coming of North Sea oil. Questions about a small nation’s ability to resist exploitation have rarely been asked with such passion, historical insight and dramatic skill.
