Sex,drugs & violence in Glasgow's Country scene....
Watched this John Byrne gem when it was broadcast on the BBC,enjoyed it but,like many others,was a bit mystified. I got a DVD of the series this Christmas (not saying where from,cough cough) watched it again and I'm still mystified!Seriously though,the script is excellent as is the acting,but I'm not sure how much of the dialogue will be understood by non-Scots.Their loss though.
