I Remember This Haunting Political Thriller
6 February 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

****** SPOILERS TO PLOT ******

I remember this being shown on Channel 4 in 1987 . It starts off with a young student played by a then unknown John Hannah jogging through the streets of Glasgow to the accompaniment of a wonderful pseudo operatic sound track . Stopping at a bridge the student witnesses the murder of a child by the mysterious Brond . As the story progresses the student finds himself used as a pawn by Brond to trap a Scottish nationalist terrorist cell and a top IRA terrorist

***** END SPOILERS ******

BROND is a political thriller you'll either love or hate . It was similar to several serials at the time like THE ONE GAME or WIPEOUT where you could easily find yourself confused as to what's happening as the plot unravels . You could also find Michael Caton Jones directorial style very pretentious and irritating but I loved it . I especially loved the haunting operatic sound track and feel slightly sad that no one has updated this page as to who composed the music for the show . And watch out for the appearance of a Special Branch officer who is played by Christopher Ellison . It's very easy to see why he was cast as Frank Burnside on THE BILL

I can't wait to see this again . Any chance of a repeat Channel 4 ?

Update Oct 2005: Thank you very much for the info about the title music
