| Excellent adaptation of John Buchan's novel.
The music is memorable - I think from one of Shostakovich's symphonies but I would like to have the full details if they are known. The British Film Industry site does not give the music credit details for any of the episodes. In terms of presentation, I watched this with my children and it is one of those series where the adults enjoy the show as much as or more than the children. The children in the programme - the Gorbals Diehards - provide much of the heroic interest. And the reasonably accurate social history context gives insights which should not be forgotten by modern Scottish or English people, or European or American either. If anyone can remind me of the source of the music I will be very grateful.
