Affecting adaptation shot on Orkney of Scots writer Christopher Rush's impressionistic 'A Twelvemonth And A Day', set in a fishing village in the 1950s. One of McAnally's last roles casts him beautifully as the sympathetic grandfather of Peter, played by nine-year-old Strachan in this moving study of a dying community seen through the eyes of a young boy.
