Entertaining and informative Gaelic language film
21 June 2004 | by trueman-1See all my reviews

This is a very well done docu-drama (about 55 minutes) about the taking of the Stone of Scone from Westminster Abbey on Christmas morning of 1950 by a band of Scottish nationalist. The Stone of Scone is a holy relic (supposed to have been Jacob's Pillow when he dreamt of the Ladder to Heaven) on which the old kings of Scotland were crowned. It was stolen by Edward Longshanks - of Braveheart fame - in 1296 and had remained at the Abbey since. It has since been returned to Scotland following the devolution of government in the UK.

The story centers around the interrogation of one of the main participants, Kay Matheson, who frustrated her interrogator by only speaking in Scottish Gaelic, through an interpretor. Most of the show actually takes place in Gaelic (with English subtitles). The only disappointment perhaps was that they had to have a stand in for Kay Matheson as she herself had taken ill at the time.

I'd highly recommend this program to learners of Gaelic and those with an interest in Scottish history. The videos are hard to come by but are available in both PAL and NTSC format.
