Great stuff
5 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the best done Scottish dramas of all time, Its the story of a young lad who likes the idea of being the big man bigot but when it comes to the crunch he just becomes appalled by it all, He loves the music & the dancing but its the booze & the fighting that gets him down, Some of the acting is a joy to watch (just listen to Billy Connelly's joke about the woman who kills her husband !!) The only problem is that the program shows all that is bad with Glasgow & the west of Scotland, The sad fact is that although this drama was filmed in 1975 the Protestant/Catholic divide is as bad as ever & i don't think it will ever get better.
