DVD Giveaway!

Anybody old enough to remember the 70s may remember a gem of a series that was screened on BBC called ‘Play for Today’.

Long revered as the golden age of television drama, two episodes of the drama series that launched a then unknown Billy Connelly are set to be launched on DVD by John Williams Productions – and we have ten copies of each episode to give away.

Originally broadcast over 30 years ago, the dramas still hold up today, even if the hair cuts don’t.
Just Another Saturday, starring John Morrison and Billy Connolly, was originally withheld from transmission because of its controversial subject matter.

First broadcast on 7 November 1975, when Sectarian troubles in Northern Ireland and issues of Scottish independence/devolution were at their height, the play delves into family life during the Orange Marches in Scotland.

If you would like to be take a trip down memory lane with some BBC drama classics, click here and your details.

The play follows one man’s journey on a typical day with the Orange marches, exposing the unpleasant truths and violence behind them. The play also uncovers the emotion and confusion rooted in Scottish history, turning a political piece into a message of youth and hope.

The Elephants’ Graveyard also features Billy Connolly. First broadcast on 12 October 1976, the play follows the story of two men who meet by accident and are brought together by their mutual hatred for work, and the lies they have told their families to hide this fact.
