Film record of McGrath's milestone 'ceilidh play' for 7:84 Scotland, about Scottish history from the Highland Clearances to the North Sea oil boom. It was the first theatre show ever to tour Scotland's Highlands and Islands, and provided a model of radical political theatre which McGrath and others are still employing and developing decades later.
