The Queen's doctor, speaking with Henry Ponsonby, is reading aloud from the "Court Circular Balmoral" which states "...on Wednesday he attended a séance where he was pleased to listen to a recital of 'Auld Lang Syne' by Mr. Robert Burns himself." This would not have been possible, since 'Auld Lang Syne,' a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788, and set to the tune of a traditional folk song, was published five years after John Brown died in 1883.

This movie is a treasure. Judi Dench deserved an Oscar for her work. If I ever see her on the street, I will apologize for the stupidity of the Academy. Billy Connolly was terrific also and deserved his own nomination. This movie is magnificent; one of the best I've seen in a long time. Even if you think this kind of thing is too Masterpiece Theatre, I think you would enjoy this.
