Originally broadcast as part of the BBC's 'Play for Today' series in 1975, this controversial tale is set in Glasgow during the Orange Walk parade and features appearances by Eileen McCallum, Ken Hutchison and Billy Connolly. John Morrison stars as John McNeil, a young man who is gradually coming to terms with the violent and unpleasant truth behind the marching and symbolic pageantry.

Was pleasantly surprised at it's thoughtful look at life in 70s Glasgow. The story follows a young boy who is a drum major in a band on a Orange Walk.
While he takes a huge amount of pride in what he does, over the course of the day we see a variety of other characters, driven by different motivations, and we get a look at the sectarian undercurrent in Glasgow, looking at both sides of the divide.
The only downside is that there are certain bits that tend to meander - showing overlong sections of flute band music and footage. While interesting to get a feel for the whole experience, some of these sections do go on a bit.
apart from that, definitely recommended.
The bands name was actually the Maryhill Flute Band but was changed for a reason unknown to myself to the Muir Flute Band.
Most of the people in the band were from the Easterhouse Masonic Club.
The scene from what is meant to look like wine alley in Govan, was actually shot on the Sunday after the parade in Edinburgh Studios in Leith I think it was, as with old man getting his window smashed and blood on his face.
Each person was paid for there services I think it was 17 pound and after shooting of the last scene they were taken to a Hotel and as my mum put it(she was not there) the bar was drunk dry, baby shams an all Lol.
I was only 6 in 1975 so some of the info I got was a bit sketchy(I think most people at the parades then were half cut) but for me a great watch.
John Morrison and other leads in this renowned BBC Play For Today show the character of the town, where to back down is a show of weakness and where you have to wear your allegiance to either Proddy of Catholic on your sleeve. The Orange Order marching season is the setting of the play, showing the still present resistance of the Catholic areas (the drums of the marching bands usually beat loader and longer passing the Catholic Chapels), where they pretend they are in Olde Edinburgh without the attendant "Gardyloo!" as they chuck the contents of bladder and bowels over the marchers.
Well worth checking out for the nature and explanation of the Chippy Jock Weegie, with his macho stance and 100% unwavering conviction to a cause. Other Peter McDougall plays explain the "West Coast" Scots character and alienation.
Visit Glasgow. It's a very friendly and helpful city, with wonderful Victorian and Art Deco Architecture, lovely park space and charming and humourous residents. Really.
