What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
The stunning BBC TV production of the National Theatre of Scotland s urgently topical play. Hurtling from a pool room in Fife to an armoured wagon in Iraq, Black Watch is based on interviews conducted by Gregory Burke with former soldiers who served in Iraq. Viewed through the eyes of those on the ground, Black Watch reveals what it means to be part of the legendary Scottish regiment, what it means to be part of the war on terror and what it means to make the journey home again. John Tiffany s production makes powerful and inventive use of movement, music and song to create a visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre. This is a show that brings together Scotland s military history and its proud tradition of popular, political theatre to address one of the thorniest issues of our time. This DVD also includes BBC Scotland s documentary Black Watch; A Soldiers Story which won a BAFTA Scotland Best Documentary Award. Gregory Burke recently won the Writer s Guild Award for Black Watch in the Best New Play category.

Incredibly well written, acted and choreographed the play completely grips you throughout. I defy anyone not to become emotionally involved while watching this. The National Theatre of Scotland have done themselves proud with this production, and the filming for TV has been handled well.
The accompanying documentary adds yet another dimension to the play by bringing in the real soldiers and families, with their experiences and views.
Truly not to be missed, this should be in every home in Britain.
Saw the BBC documentary last year on TV - an excellent companion programme - a great bonus.
It has to be one of the most moving, traumatic and rewarding pieces of theatre I have ever seen. I lived, breathed, celebrated and grieved for these men during their close knit, claustrophobic tour of duty and ultimately tried, like them, to make sense of the situation that they had been thrust into.
This should be required viewing for all politicians...
I have already seen the BBC production, also attended a live performance of this absolutely stunning production, and am delighted to have obtained the dvd to 'keep me going' until Scottish National Theatre tours the play again - I can't recommend it highly enought, it is the most amazing piece of theatre, whatever your beliefs or politics. The dvd is a close second to the live performance - buy it!
